Risk Warning Statement

MAS notes that overseas-listed investment products may carry a different set of risks and different levels of protection for investors from those offered locally. MAS requires retail customers to be aware of the possible risks prior to the customer’s first purchase of an overseas-listed investment product from February 2013 and to obtain the customer’s acknowledgement on the risk warning disclosure.

It is a risk warning disclosure which highlights the key risks that customers should be aware of before trading in overseas-listed investment products. These include differences in legal systems, regulatory regime, political, social and economic developments as well as differences in costs, counterparty and correspondent broker risks between the foreign jurisdictions and Singapore.

Please refer to the Risk Warning Statement for details.

The requirement for acknowledgement of the RWS applies to all Retail Investors. You are not required to acknowledge the RWS if you are:

  • An Accredited Investor 
  • An Expert Investor 
  • An Institutional Investor
