Investments may not be appropriate for everybody. The risks of investing in the RAW Mortgage Fund are outlined here.
Technology Risks and Business Continuity
The Manager is reliant on access to systems and the internet to operate normally. Disruption to communications may cause delays which may impact on performance. The Manager has various contingencies in place to mitigate such risks but it is impossible to eliminate all such risks. The investment industry is seeing an increasing incidence of cyber-attacks on business. It is possible that such an attack on the Manager could disrupt our ability to manage assets in the way it would otherwise wish.
The Manager seeks to mitigate the technology risks through the outsourcing of its IT support requirements to a specialist company that implements industry standard firewalls, virus protection and data back-up.
The Manager and other counterparties may be the subject of attempted fraud. Such fraud could potentially occur against the Manager or other service provider impacting on the ability of that company to operate or even remain solvent.
The Manager has financial controls in place to help prevent fraud which include having a limited number of authorised signatories to its accounts and every transaction requiring two authorised signatories to be approved. The accounts of the Manager are audited each year.
Conflicts of Interest
From time to time it is possible that the manager has conflicts of interest. The Manager’s policy on dealing with conflicts of interest is “that the Company and staff must seek to avoid or manage conflicts of interest. Where a conflict arises, staff should ensure fair treatment to all its Clients by disclosure, internal rules of confidentiality, declining to act, or otherwise. Staff should not unfairly place its interests above those of its Clients and, where a properly informed Client would reasonably expect that the firm would place his interests above its own, the Company should live up to that expectation.”
Client Monies may be held in a designated Fund or client account when not invested. Clients will not receive interest or investment returns on any balance held in the Fund or client account before dealing or after redemption/maturity.
Where client transactions result in an amount of £20 or less remaining on the client account, for example after the purchase of shares, this amount (or higher if relevant bank charges would negate the benefit) will not be returned to the client and will be for the benefit of The Manager.
Where funds are being returned to a client, they will only be returned to an account in the name of the client. No third-party payments will be made.
Collection of Fees
Fees will be calculated in accordance with the Fund Prospectus or client agreement.
Client complaints should be made in writing and sent by email to [email protected]. All complaints should include the Client name and Account number. All Client complaints will be referred to the Compliance Officer and Clients should receive an initial response within 2 working days.
