Investment Risks

The value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the original amount invested. Investments in smaller companies carry a higher degree of risk as their shares may be less liquid and investment values can be volatile. Gearing is used for investment purposes to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to an asset, index or investment. The use of gearing can enhance returns to investors in a rising market, but if the market falls the losses may be greater.


Stock picking is the key driver of portfolio composition with only those companies in which the manager has a high degree of conviction warranting a position in the portfolio. Typically the portfolio is comprised of around 200 holdings including around 10 fund holdings targeting those markets where BMO does not have dedicated in-house smaller company expertise.
