Investing in financial instruments involves taking on a number of risks. Such risks could result in investors losing some or all of their investment or of not making expected returns. It is important to ensure that these risks are understood prior to making any such investment.
This page provides an overview of the various risks that may arise in respect of financial instruments that you may trade with Investec. Investec does not intend this page to cover all possible risks of an investment and clearly the risks of a specific financial instrument can vary significantly depending on a number of factors. If you require any further information on potential risks generally or relating to a specific financial instrument, please get in touch with your usual Investec contact.
