IFM Investors’ investments

Information is provided for information purposes only
The Information provided is general in nature and may be used for information purposes only. It is not intended to be, and must not alone be taken as, the basis for an investment decision.
The Information has been prepared without taking into account the investment objectives, financial situation or particular needs of any particular person or entity. You should assume all information is written and prepared for large and experienced institutional investors with the highest degree of financial sophistication and knowledge and the capacity to withstand and assess any financial losses. IFM Investors recommends that before making an investment decision, each prospective investor should consult a financial adviser and should consider whether any investments are appropriate in light of their particular investment needs, objectives and financial circumstances.
The Information is only intended to provide a general overview of the matters with which it deals. The Information is not intended to be comprehensive, nor does it purport to constitute legal, tax, financial product or investment advice. All Information available on this website should be assessed in consultation with your investment, financial, tax, accounting and legal advisors. To the extent that the Information on this website relates to an IFM Investors' fund into which an investor may invest, the Information is qualified in its entirety by the reference to the applicable confidential information memorandum or private placement memorandum of the relevant IFM Investors fund and must be read in conjunction with such memoranda in order to fully understand all of the implications and risks of investing in IFM Investors funds. The achievement of any or all goals of any investment that may be described herein is not guaranteed. Risks of IFM Investors’ investment programs typically include but are not limited to:
· assets of IFM Investors funds have limited liquidity
· no public market currently exists, and one may never exist for interests in IFM Investors funds
· distributions are uncertain
· a return on your investment is not guaranteed and you may lose all or a substantial amount of your investment
· substantial fees and expenses are typically paid to an offerings advisor, its affiliates and participating broker dealers
· unfavourable economic conditions in the markets in which IFM Investors funds operate could adversely affect your investment
· assets acquired with leverage have risks including loss of value and limits on flexibility needed if there are changes in the business or industry.
For a more fulsome list of applicable risk factors, please read the relevant memorandum carefully and consult your own investment, financial, accounting, legal and tax advisors prior to undertaking an investment in interests in IFM Investors funds. An investment in any of these investment programs should be made only after careful review of the risk factors described in the relevant memorandum.
Prospective investors should conduct their own investigation and analysis of an investment with IFM Investors (or any of its related bodies corporate) and the Information and make their own assessment of the appropriateness of the Information and any proposed investment having regard to their own objectives, financial situation and needs, independently and without reliance on IFM Investors or its respective directors, employees, agents and affiliates. In addition, prospective investors are strongly urged to consult their own legal counsel and financial, accounting, regulatory and tax advisers before making any investment decisions.
Before making any investment decisions, potential investors should consult the relevant disclosure document in order to acquaint themselves with the precise nature of any risks incurred and in particular the risk of capital loss and, where relevant, the liquidity risk of underlying assets. Any investment decision must be made in accordance with investors’ investment objectives, their investment horizon and their capacity to deal with the risk arising from the transaction. You should do this before making an investment decision by making this assessment yourself, or seeking the assistance of an adviser.
