Global Investment Centre and InvestDirect are execution-only services. We don't give advice on sharedealing or fund investment. These products are offered without advice and, as such, we are not required to assess the suitability of these products for you. This means that the protection offered by the Financial Conduct Authority's rules on assessing suitability will not apply to such transactions.

Investors are advised to consider carefully the special risks of investing in emerging market securities. Investments in emerging markets are by their nature higher risk and potentially more volatile than those in more established markets.

The value of most investments, and any income they generate, can go down as well as up, meaning you may not get back the full amount you invested. This may in part be due to exchange rate fluctuations where overseas investments are held.

Most investments should be considered as a medium- to long-term commitment, meaning you should be prepared to hold them for at least five years.

The value of any tax benefits described depends on your individual circumstances. Tax rules may change in the future.
