The term, "investment trusts", used in this website means any fund products regulated under the Law Concerning Investment Trusts and Investment Companies of Japan. No such investment trusts shall be offered or sold to any person in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation would be unlawful under the securities regulation of such jurisdictions.
Investment trusts invest in securities and other instruments such as shares and public corporation bonds whose prices are subject to change (when investments are made in assets denominated in foreign currencies, there are also risks associated with changes in currency exchange rates), and therefore, net asset values are subject to change. Consequently, unlike deposits with financial institutions, investment principals are not guaranteed.
Gains and losses resulting from investment in an investment trust shall be imputed to the customers who purchased the investment trust.
Investment trusts are not subject to deposit insurance.
Unlike amounts guaranteed under deposit insurance, funds received from investment in investment trusts are not guaranteed.
Investment trusts are not insurance and are not subject to the Non-life Insurance Policy-holders Protection Corporation of Japan.
