Investors should take cognisance of the fact that there are risks involved in buying or selling any financial product and that past performance of a financial product is not necessarily indicative of its future performance. The value of financial products can increase as well as decrease over time, depending on the value of the underlying securities and market conditions. 

Hedge funds are portfolios of collective investment schemes and are regulated under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, 45 of 2002. Investments in portfolios of collective investment schemes are generally medium to long term investments. Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and may engage in scrip lending and borrowing. The manager of a collective investment scheme may close a portfolio to new investors in order to manage the portfolio more efficiently in terms of its mandate.
