Shares in Pacific Assets Trust Plc have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act 1933 (as amended). The information in this website is not intended for distribution and does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy any securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or distribution would be unlawful including but not limited to the United States of America or for the benefit of any United States persons. Investments in emerging markets may involve a higher risk than investments in more developed markets. Investors should consider whether or not an investment in funds or companies which invest in such markets is either suitable for or should constitute a substantial part of an investor’s portfolio.
Investments in Pacific Assets may be less liquid than the securities of a larger company, or an investment trust which invests in larger companies, or in more developed economic regions. Securities in smaller companies or an investment trust (such as Pacific Assets) which invests in emerging markets may possess greater potential for capital appreciation, but also involve risks, such as limited product lines, markets and financial or managerial resources and trading in such securities may be subject to more abrupt price movements than trading in the securities of larger companies.
