Risk Warning

Do not invest in financial products with money that you cannot afford to lose.

An investment in derivatives carries a high degree of risk to the investor. This means that, due to fluctuations in value, the investor may not get back the amount he has invested. Additionally, with certain transactions, the investor may not only lose what he has invested at the outset, but may incur an additional liability to pay further unspecified amounts at a later date.

The inherent concept of derivatives means that they are not suitable for an investor seeking an income from his investments because the income from such investments may fluctuate in value in money terms. For an investment in an OTC product, which is not a readily realisable investment, it may be difficult to sell or realise the investment and obtain reliable information about its value, or the extent of the risks to which it is exposed.

The value of investments denominated in foreign currencies may reduce or increase due to changes in the rates of exchange as between different currencies. Derivatives are therefore only suitable for those investors who fully understand the market risks, including the risks inherent in foreign exchange markets, and have previous trading experience. It is advisable to seek independent legal, financial and tax advice prior to investing.

Investors are dealing with BBY (NZ) Limited (BBY New Zealand) as their advisor and executing through third party Participants when they invest in financial products. Therefore, investors are exposed to the risk that a third party Participant may not be able to perform its obligations under the derivative at the time they close their derivative position. An investor’s recourse is limited to the third party Participant except as otherwise permitted under BBY New Zealand’s Terms and Conditions.
