  • Key Investor Information Documents (or KIID) contain details about fund objectives and charges, along with information relating to the risk and reward profile of each portfolio.
  • This risk and reward profile has a scale from 1-7. 1 Profiles have lower risk and typically lower returns; 7s have higher risk, but also typically higher returns. The Bank World Selection Portfolios are rated from 3 to 5 on this risk and reward profile scale. The rating is based on price volatility over the last five years, and is an indicator of absolute risk.
  • However, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The rating is not guaranteed to remain unchanged, and the classification may shift over time. If the rating does change, Bank would notify you in your half yearly statement. Please refer to the KIID for further information.
  • From 3 January 2018, a key piece of European legislation called MiFID II applies to financial services that are regulated in the UK.

  • When you telephone or place a deal on-line you will be asked to confirm that you have read the appropriate Costs and Charges Disclosure Document before we can proceed with your investment instruction.
  • The Costs and Charges Disclosure Document provides you with a generic example of the costs and charges associated with your Account (both the product, service and ancillary costs) in a percentage and monetary amount. There is also an illustration of the potential cumulative effect of costs on the return of your investment over time.
  • Please note the illustrations in each Costs and Charges Disclosure Document are based on assumed growth rates and are not reliable indicators of future performance. Please be aware that you may not get back what you originally invested.

Bank’s World Selection ISA aims to provide information to help you make your own informed decisions. Our World Selection ISA journey should not be taken as personal recommendation that a particular investment is suitable for you or your personal circumstances. Therefore Bank is not required to assess the suitability of this ISA for you, which means that the protection offered by the Financial Conduct Authority's rules on assessing suitability will not apply. If you have any doubts about whether this ISA is suitable for your needs, you should seek advice from a Financial Adviser. You may be charged for any advice you receive.

The value of investments (and any income received from them) can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount invested. For some investments this can also happen as a result of exchange rate fluctuations as shares and funds may have an exposure to overseas markets.

Most investments should be considered as a medium to long-term commitment, meaning you should be prepared to hold them for at least five years.

The value of any tax benefits described depends on your individual circumstances. Tax rules may change in the future.
