Advice warning

This website may contain general financial product advice and does not constitute an offer or inducement to enter into a legally binding contract. It does not form part of the terms and conditions for Merchant products or services. The information provided on this website is not intended as, nor is it a substitute for, personal financial services advice. As this website has been prepared without consideration of any specific client’s investment objectives, financial situation or needs, a financial advisor should be consulted before any investment decision is made. Readers acting on this information without first consulting an adviser do so entirely at their own risk.

Where the general advice relates to the acquisition or possible acquisition of a particular financial product, the client should obtain a specific Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) relating to the relevant product and consider the PDS before making any decision about product acquisition. In deciding whether to open a trading account with Merchant, investors should contact Merchant on 08 6277 0050.

Conflicts of Interest

Merchant or its associates, officers or employees may have interests in securities and may receive fees, brokerage or commissions. Further, Merchant or its associates, officers or employees may buy or sell the securities as principal or agent and may enter into transactions which are not consistent with any recommendations above.

Investment Risk

None of Merchant, its associates, officers or employees guarantees the performance, return of capital from or any particular rate of return of a trading account. Investment products are always subject to risk. We recommend obtaining professional advice before investing.

All investments are subject to risk. There is a risk that the value of the investment may rise or fall and produce a return which is less than you anticipate. Rises and falls in value can occur rapidly and for a variety of reasons.

Trading derivatives carries an inherently higher level of risk to your capital than traditional share trading. Do not invest in derivatives with money you cannot afford to lose. An investment in derivatives carries a high degree of risk to the investor, and which due to fluctuations in value, the investor may not get back the amount they have invested. With certain transactions clients may not only lose what they have invested at the outset but may incur a 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 diminish or increase due to changes in the rates of exchange. Derivatives are therefore only suitable for those customers who fully understand the market risk and have previous trading experience. It is advisable to seek independent advice if necessary.
