Please read this page before proceeding, as it explains certain restrictions imposed by law on the distribution of this information and the countries in which our funds are authorised for sale. It is your responsibility to be aware of and to observe all applicable laws and regulations of any relevant jurisdiction.

Please note that you are required to read and accept the terms of our Privacy Policy before you are able to access our websites.

Once you have confirmed that you agree to the legal information in this document, and the Privacy Policy – by indicating your consent above – we will place a cookie on your computer to recognise you and prevent this page reappearing should you access this site, or other Guardian Management Limited sites, on future occasions. The cookie will expire after six months. Guardian Management Limited reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time by placing amended terms and conditions on this website. If the terms and conditions are amended you will be required to read and indicate your consent of these terms and conditions of use again.

By confirming that you have read and accept these terms and conditions, you also:

(i) Agree that these terms and conditions will apply to any subsequent access to the “Intermediaries” section of this website by you, and that all such subsequent access will be subject to the disclaimers, risk warnings and other information set out in these terms and conditions and elsewhere on this website; and

(ii) Warrant that no other person will access the Intermediaries section of this website from the same computer and logon as you are currently using.

Information on this website is directed at intermediaries only. Guardian Management Limited will not be liable for any damages or losses suffered by any investors accessing areas of any Guardian Management Limited websites that are not appropriate for their investor type.

The funds described in the following pages are administered and managed by companies within the Guardian Management Limited Group and can be marketed in certain jurisdictions only. It is your responsibility to be aware of the applicable laws and regulations of your country of residence. Further information is available in the prospectus or other constitutional document for each fund. Please note that only some of the offshore funds seek distributor status in the UK.

This website and the information contained within it does not constitute an offer or solicitation to sell shares in any of the funds referred to on this site, by anyone in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or distribution would be unlawful or in which the person making such offer or solicitation is not qualified to do so or to anyone to whom it is unlawful to make such offer or solicitation.

Applications to invest in any fund referred to on this site, must only be made on the basis of the offer document relating to the specific investment (e.g. prospectus, key investor information document or other applicable terms and conditions).

As a result of money laundering regulations, additional documentation for identification purposes may be required when you make your investment. Details are contained in the relevant Prospectus or other constitutional document.

If you are unsure about the meaning of any information provided please consult your financial or other professional adviser. Any information relating to tax and tax treatment should not be considered advice or a recommendation to any client.

There may be risks involved with an investment in a Guardian Management Limited fund:

• Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

• The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and are not guaranteed.

• You may not get back the amount you invested.

• Any favourable tax treatment of a product (including but not limited to ISAs) is subject to government legislation and as such may not be maintained.

• The levels and bases of, and reliefs from, taxation changed in the last Budget and may change in the future.

• Rates of exchange may cause the value of investments to go up or down.

• Fluctuation may be particularly marked in the case of a higher volatility fund and the value of an investment may fall suddenly and substantially.

• For your protection, telephone calls are usually recorded.

Please note that while some of the Guardian Management Limited funds are “ring-fenced”, others form part of a single company and are not. For Guardian Management Limited funds that are not ring fenced (i.e. those that do not have segregated liability status), in the event of a single Guardian Management Limited fund being unable to meet liabilities attributable to that Guardian Management Limited fund out of the assets attributable to it, the excess may be met out of the assets attributable to the other Guardian Management Limited funds within the same company. We refer you to the prospectus or other relevant terms and conditions of each Guardian Management Limited fund for further information in this regard.
