Risk Disclaimer

Trading Foreign Exchange (‘FX’) and Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’) on margin is highly speculative, it carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors as they are complex financial products. High level of leverage products may work to your detriment as well as for your benefit. Before deciding to trade on margin and/or invest in FX or CFDs you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite carefully. You therefore should be aware of all of the risks associated with trading FX and CFDs and you should not speculate with capital that you cannot afford to lose. The possibility exists that you may sustain loss of some and/or all and/or more than your initial capital and/or deposit(s) and/or investment(s); further you may be required to deposit additional funds to sustain an existing open position. Most CFDs have no set maturity date. As such, CFDs positions mature on the date you choose to close existing open positions and for that reason past performance of CFDs cannot be considered a reliable indicator of future results. Seek independent advice and/or consultation from an independent financial advisor if necessary and before entering into any transaction with HBGM.
