CIM is authorised and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA Firm Reference Number 443440). Most if not all of the protections provided by the United Kingdom regulatory structure including access to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and the Financial Ombudsman Service will not apply to investments in the funds detailed within this website. CIM Dividend Income Fund Limited, CIM Dividend Income Holdings Fund Limited and, CIM Discovery Fund Limited are unregulated collective investment schemes which are not recognised schemes under s.264 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. However, these funds are registered with the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK and are therefore available to professional investors based in the UK.
No information on this website has been included with regard to any individual's circumstances, objectives, or needs and each individual must make his own independent decisions regarding any investment decisions in relation to the funds detailed within this website. Potential investors should not rely on any of the content of this website in making any investment decision. Potential investors should read the relevant offering materials of the funds carefully before any investment decision is made.
Before taking any investment decision , each individual is urged to consider the suitability of the transaction to his particular circumstances and to review independently, with professional advisors as necessary, the specific risks incurred, in particular the financial, regulatory, and tax aspects.

There are significant risks associated with investment in the funds outlined in the website. Investment in the unregulated schemes on this website is intended for sophisticated investors who can accept the risks associated with such an investment including a substantial or complete loss of their investment. Such schemes are permitted to and sometimes use gearing as an investment strategy. The effect of such gearing is that movements in the net asset value per share in the schemes will be more volatile than the movements in the prices of their underlying investments. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up and the value of an investor's investment may be extremely volatile and be subject to sudden and substantial falls. The prices of commodities contracts and all derivatives instruments, including futures and options, are highly volatile. Certain investment positions may be illiquid. The Funds may invest in securities of financially troubled companies, illiquid over-the-counter securities and non-publicly traded securities.
Investment in emerging market funds involves risk factors and special considerations which may not be typically associated with investing in more developed markets. Political or economic change and instability may be more likely to occur and have a greater effect on the economies and markets of emerging countries. Adverse government policies, taxation, restrictions on foreign investment and on currency convertibility and repatriation, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of emerging countries in which investment may be made, including expropriation, nationalisation or other confiscation could result in loss to the fund.
Income from investments may fluctuate. Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of investments. You should be aware that investments in higher yielding bonds issued by borrowers with lower credit ratings may result in a greater risk of default and have a negative impact on income and capital value. Income payments may constitute a return of capital in whole or in part. Income may be achieved by foregoing future capital growth. Fund charges may be applied in whole or part to capital, which may result in capital erosion. The funds are not traded on an exchange or recognised market and in common with some of their investments may not be readily realisable. This factor can make it difficult to obtain independent verification of the investment value and the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. Investors should be fully aware of the restrictions on transfer of investments.
The foregoing list of risk factors is not complete and reference should be made to the relevant fund's offering memorandum.
