Investors are not guaranteed the investment principal that they commit. Investors may incur a loss and the value of their investment principal may fall below par as the result of a decline in market price or NAV. All profits and losses arising from investments in the Fund belong to the investors (beneficiaries). This fund is different from saving deposit.

The funds invest primarily in bonds. The NAV of the Funds may fall and you may suffer a loss for reasons such as a drop in the price of bonds or deterioration in financial conditions and business performance of an issuer of bonds. Investors may also incur losses due to exchange rate fluctuations when investing in assets denominated in foreign currencies.

Major risks of investment trust securities invested in by the Funds are as follows:

Price Fluctuation Risk
Corporate and government bonds generally have a price fluctuation risk arising from changes in interest rates. Generally, their prices go down when interest rates rise, causing the NAV of the Funds to fall. The degree of price fluctuation varies depending on the remaining time to maturity and the terms of issue in question.

Liquidity Risk
Where the market size or trading volume is small, buying and selling prices for securities may be greatly affected. This results in the risk that securities cannot be traded at the expected prices, sold at the appraised prices, or that trading volume is limited regardless of prices. This creates the risk of unexpected losses.

Credit Risk
If a default has occurred or is expected to occur, for issuers of public and corporate bonds or short-term financial assets, the prices of such public and corporate bonds or short-term financial assets decline (the value could even fall to zero). This results in a decline of the Funds’ NAVs. In addition, if default in fact occurs, there is a high possibility of being unable to collect invested cash.

Currency Fluctuation Risk
For foreign-currency-denominated assets, in general, if the yen is stronger than the currencies of such assets, the fund’s NAV will decline.

Main factors contributing to the discrepancies between Bloomberg France Treasury 7-10 Year Index TTM JPY Currency Unhedged and NAV

This fund seeks to ensure that its NAV has the same volatility as Bloomberg France Treasury 7-10 Year Index TTM JPY Currency Unhedged; however, we cannot always guarantee that the fund will have the same volatility as the Index due to the following factors attributable to this Fund and to the investment trust securities invested in by this fund:

  • Lag between the timing of fund inflows and the purchase of investment trust securities.
  • Where the portfolio is adjusted through investment in issues other than the constituent issues of Bloomberg France Treasury 7-10 Year Index TTM JPY Currency Unhedged or through changes in the constituent issues or weighting of Bloomberg France Treasury 7-10 Year Index TTM JPY Currency Unhedged, the trading of individual issues may be affected by market impact or the fund may bear costs such as management fees, brokerage fees and auditing fees.
  • The timing and amount of payment for the distribution of the Fund will not be completely the same as the distribution from the underlying bonds; and
  • Where derivative transactions such as futures are conducted, discrepancies in price movements between such transactions and part or all of the constituent issues of Bloomberg France Treasury 7-10 Year Index TTM JPY Currency Unhedged.

Discrepancies between the market prices at which stocks are traded on the Exchange and the NAV
The Funds are listed on and will be publicly traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange; however, the market price of the units will depend mainly on the demand for the Funds, their investment performances, and how attractive they are to investors in comparison to alternative investments, etc. We cannot predict whether the Funds will be traded as a market value below or above their NAVs.
The prices of securities targeted for investment of the Funds will fluctuate under the influence of the aforementioned risks. Therefore, please note that the Funds themselves have these risks as well.
The factors that contribute to fluctuations in the NAV are not limited to those listed above.

Additional Considerations

  • This document is meant as promotional material whose purpose is for Nikko Asset Management to provide information about its "Listed Index Fund France Government Bond (No Currency Hedge)" and for investors to gain further understanding about the fund.
  • The provisions stipulated in Article 37-6 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act (the “cooling-off period”) are not applicable to Fund transactions.
  • This Fund differs from deposits or insurance policies in that it is not protected by the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Japan or the Policyholders Protection Corporation of Japan. Nor are investment trusts protected by investor protection funds when purchased at banks or other registered financial institutions.
  • When the Fund faces big redemption causing short term cash requirement or sudden change in the main trading market condition, there can be temporal decline in the liquidity of holding assets, resulting in the risks that Fund unable to trade securities at the expected market prices or appraised prices, or encounters limitation in trading volume. This may result in the negative influence on NAV, suspension of redemption applications, or delay in making payment of redemption.
  • When applying to invest in the Fund, please make the decision to invest carefully after taking the time to read the delivered pre-agreement document and other relevant materials in detail.
