Investment and Trading Risks
All securities, commodities, derivatives and other investments risk the loss of capital. The Investment Manager believes that the investment program and research techniques will moderate this risk through a careful selection of securities, commodities, and through skillful hedging or arbitrage techniques. However, no guarantee or representation is made Swiss's investment program will be successful.
The success of any investment activity is affected by general economic conditions that affect the level and volatility of prices as well as the liquidity of the markets. The prices of many securities and derivative instruments are highly volatile. The Company's investment's are influenced by, among other things, interest rates, changing supply and demand relationships, the trade, fiscal, monetary and exchange control programs and policies of governments, and national and international political and economic events. Governments from time to time intervene, directly and by regulation, in certain markets, particularly those in currencies and interest rates, disrupting strategies focusing on these sectors. Unexpected changes (in either direction) in the volatility or liquidity of the markets in which the Company invests could cause significant losses.
