Investment Risk

Fluctuation factors of NAV

・This fund invests in foreign exchange margin transactions that are exposed to market movements through investment trust securities and its NAV fluctuates.
Therefore preservation of investment capital is not guaranteed and there may be cases where loss is incurred and investment capital is impaired due to fall in net asset value of the fund.
Profit and loss of investment trust assets all belong to investors.
Investment trust is different to bank savings and deposits.

Risks associated with System Investment This fund makes investments through automated systems. Therefore any malfunctions in the automated systems may cause temporary halt to the investment process and cause decline in NAV.
Risks associated with trade executions Depending on the market conditions trades may be executed at different prices to the bid and offer in the market. This may cause loss of profit opportunities or actual losses.
Risks associated with arbitrage transactions Spot arbitrage strategy aims to execute both buy and sell of a same investment product. But depending on the market conditions only one side is executed or the amount of buy and sell may differ. This may cause loss of profit opportunities or actual losses.
Credit risks of brokers Credit conditions of brokers may deteriorate and there is a possibility that trades, settlements or return of margin deposits may become difficult. This may cause loss of profit opportunities or actual losses.
Foreign Exchange Risk In general, when Japanese Yen appreciates in the market, foreign assets lose its value in Japanese Yen and cause decline in NAV.
Country Risk Due to political and economic reasons including foreign exchange, capital restrictions and tax law change may cause difficulties in investment process and cause decline in NAV.
Leverage Risk Margin trades allow transactions much larger than the margin deposit. In general, larger the leverage, bigger the profit or loss that occur in a short period of time.
Conflict of interest Investment manager and its related companies of this fund can deal in other businesses and manage accounts of clients other than that of this fund. In such cases, transactions executed for these other clients can have negative effects on the prices of the investments in this fund. Also the investment manager of this fund can manage other funds with similar investment strategies. Therefore conflicts of interest may occur when the investment manager devotes its time and functions equally among these funds.

※Reasons for fluctuations in NAV are not limited to above.

Other points of attention

● Subscription of this fund is not covered by Financial Instruments and Exchange Law Clause 37-6 (Cooling off clause).
● This fund invests in designated investment trust securities part of which is managed by an external investment manager and the investment process can be hindered by changes in its business and assets, fund managers as well as other reasons. Review of the designated investment trust securities is aimed at enhancing the fund’s performance but can result in decline of NAV.
● In order to meet the redemption requirements, this fund may sell large amounts of investment trust securities or execute reverse trades. In such cases, sales and reverse trades may not be executed as planned depending on the market size and conditions and cause decline in the fund’s NAV.
● In case of large redemption requests, Spectra SPC-Powerfund JP Segregated Portfolio may stop, reverse or postpone these requests. In such cases, this fund may also reverse redemption requests or postpone payments. And in case of unavoidable situations such as closure of market exchanges, stoppage of foreign exchange transactions or a failure in settlement functions, this fund may stop accepting subscription and redemption requests or reverse these requests.
● Unlike bank savings and deposits, dividends are paid out of fund’s assets and the NAV of the fund will decline by the same amount. Dividends do not indicate the fund’s profit ratio as the dividends may exceed the profits made during the calculation period. And depending on the subscription price, the dividends may result in all or partial return of capital. It is the same when the rise in NAV is smaller than the dividend.

Risk Control Structure 

●Monitoring of investment risk and investment guidelines as well as investment analysis and evaluation is performed by the Compliance Department which is independent from the Investment Department.
●Compliance Risk Department reports to the Compliance Risk Committee and the latter make recommendations to the Investment Committee if any measures are required.
