Warning: the price and value of all shares may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the full amount invested. You should not buy equity securities with money you cannot afford to lose. Technology companies may exhibit greater than average volatility, meaning your investment may be subject to sudden and large falls in value and you may get back nothing at all. Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value or price of the investment in sterling terms. As with other investments, transactions in technology securities may also have tax consequences and on these you should consult your tax adviser.
