Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.  The Fund is a sub-fund of Lazard Investment Funds – a UK based open ended investment company (OEIC). Investors are reminded that the value of shares and income from them can go down as well as up and they may not get back the full amount invested.

In view of the concentrated nature of the portfolio, the level of risk is expected to be higher than a broader based fund.

Fluctuations in the rate of exchange between the currency in which shares are denominated and the currency of investment may have the effect of causing the value of investments to diminish or increase.

The Authorised Corporate Director of the Fund is Lazard Fund Managers Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
