Investors who purchase equity securities may be exposed to a high level of risk because the prices of equity securities can rise and fall significantly in a short period of time with both a change in general markets or a change in the fortune of the underlying companies.

Investors who purchase fixed income securities may be exposed to fluctuations in the price of those securities due to change in interest rates, a change in credit spreads or a change in the ability of the underlying companies to payback their loans.

Cash, or other investments, held in a foreign currency will expose the investor to fluctuations in currency. Further, there could be limitations or taxes placed on the purchase or sale of foreign currency which could limit the investor’s ability to buy or sell foreign investments.

Liquidity risks include the inability to purchase or sell a security at prevailing or desired prices due to a lack of shares available for sale on the market.

Derivatives, including call and put options, are investments whose value is derived from an underlying security. The price of derivative securities can change very quickly and are generally much more volatile than the underlying security. Further, there is no guarantee that the derivative security tracks the value of the underlying security.

Exchange Traded Funds (“ETFs”) are securities that closely resemble an underlying index. The value and the change of value of the ETF could deviate from the underlying index for a number reasons, including, (a) a lack of liquidity in the ETF, (b) management fees, (c) the use of leverage, (b) in some instances, the ETF does not hold all of the underlying securities held in the index.

Compliance-related complaints:

In the event of a significant business disruption (“SBD”) (e.g. major power failure, pandemic etc.) Cumberland has put in place a business continuity plan to ensure clients have access to their accounts.

Our portfolio managers will communicate with clients as soon as possible following the occurrence of an SBD to update them on the status of our ongoing services to them and to let them know how we are coping with the emergency.
