Risk Disclosure

Investment

Investment involves risks. The prices of investment products fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, and may become valueless. Before making any investment decision, customers should consult their own independent financial advisors and read the relevant offering documents in order to ensure that they fully understand the risks associated with the investment products.

Insurance

Customers should read and understand the details of the insurance plan(s) (including but not limited to exact terms, conditions, coverage and exclusions) before any enrollment to assure the insurance products meet their personal needs. Specific details, terms and conditions applicable to insurance products are set out in respective insurance policies to be issued by the relevant insurance companies. Policyholders are subject to the credit risk of insurance companies. For life insurance products, an insurance plan may comprise a savings element. Part of the premium pays for the insurance and related costs. If a customer is not happy with the customer’s policy, the customer has a right to cancel it within the cooling off period and obtain a refund of any premiums paid. A written notice signed by the customer should be received by the insurer's Hong Kong Main Office within the cooling off period (that is, 21 days after the delivery of the policy or issue of a notice (informing the customer or the customer’s representative about the availability of the policy and expiry date of the cooling off period), whichever is the earlier). After the expiration of the cooling off period, if the customer cancels the policy before the end of the term, the projected total cash value may be less than the total premium the customer has paid.
