Real estate risk
Investments in real estate may not be able to be sold, realised or liquidated when you want because real estate assets may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case, we may defer your request or instruction regarding your investment. Investors should also bear in mind that the valuation of real estate is generally a matter of valuers’ opinion rather than fact.
