Investments held by the financial products described in this document are associated with a higher risk than investments in more developed markets or countries. Emerging markets exist in countries that display at least one of the following features: a degree of political instability; relatively unpredictable trends in growth and financial market development; a financial market that is still at a developing stage; a weak economy. As a rule, investments in emerging markets are exposed to greater risks. These include political and economic risks and risks relating, for example, to soundness, exchange rates, market liquidity, legal regulations, settlement, markets, shareholders, and creditors. Investors should be willing and financially able to accept the risk features of the investments described in this document.

Commodity investments are prone to wider fluctuations in value than conventional investments, and may entail additional investment risks. Futuregrowth and/or the members of its board of directors and employees may hold shares in the financial products (or any related investments) mentioned in this document and may add or sell these positions from time to time. Additionally, the members of the board of directors and employees of Futuregrowth and/or may serve as members of boards of directors of the investments in which the financial products are invested.

The prospectus, the management regulations and the annual and semi-annual reports may be obtained free of charge Futuregrowth, and from any distribution partner. The Old Mutual African Agricultural Fund is a contractual investment fund. It belongs to the asset class “other funds for alternative investments” associated with particular risk.

The risks associated with this investment fund are not comparable to those of securities funds. Investors’ attention is therefore expressly drawn to the risks explained in the fund prospectus and contract, and to the lower liquidity and greater difficulty of valuation of the fund  investments, which are not usually listed or traded. Investors must assume that up to 65% of the fund assets may be invested, directly or indirectly in permanent crops and permanent crop farmland, and up to 50% of this in South Africa. In particular, investors must be willing and able to bear partial or total loss of their capital. Investors should  therefore hold shares in the Old Mutual African Agricultural Fund only as a small proportion of a diversified portfolio.
