The value of investments (and any income received from them) can fall as well as rise, and you may not get back some or all of what you invested. For some investments exchange rate fluctuations will have greater impact to the value of shares depending on their level of exposure to overseas markets.
Any investment should be considered as a medium to long-term investment - so should be held for at least five years.
Early withdrawals on fixed term products could mean you may get back significantly less than you paid in.
The value of the tax benefits depends on your individual circumstances - and tax rules may change at any time in the future.
