5.5 The Company is authorised to exercise or sell or to allow the lapse of rights arising in relation to the Portfolio Investments taking into account the best interests of the Portfolio.

9. Acknowledgment of Risk
9.1 The Client acknowledges and accepts that:
(1) The Portfolio Financial Instruments or funds of the Client may be held by a third party on behalf of the Company and in such cases the Client may not be fully protected against the insolvency of the third party or in case of any act or omission of any such third party.
(2) The funds or Portfolio Financial Instruments of the Client may be held in an omnibus account by a third party and in such cases the Client may not be fully protected against the insolvency of the third party or in case of any act or omission of any such third party.
(3) The Portfolio Financial Instruments may be held with a third party and such Portfolio Financial Instruments may not be separately identifiable from the proprietary financial instruments of that third party or of the Company and in such cases the Client may not be fully protected against the insolvency of the third party or in case of any act or omission of any such third party.
(4) The accounts that contain Portfolio Financial Instruments or funds belonging to the Client may be subject to the law of a jurisdiction other than that of an EU member state and the rights of the Client relating to those Portfolio Financial Instruments or funds may differ accordingly.
(5) A depository may have a security interest or lien over, or right of set-off in relation to Portfolio Financial Instruments or funds belonging to the Client.
(6) Notwithstanding any Investment Advice or information which may have been given by the IF, the value of any investment in Portfolio Financial Instruments may fluctuate either upwards or downwards.
(7) The existence of a substantial risk of incurring losses and damages as a result of the purchase or sale of any Portfolio Financial Instrument and acknowledges his willingness to take such risk.
(8) When a Portfolio Financial Instrument is negotiated in a currency other than the currency of the country of residence of the Client, any changes in the exchange rates may have a negative effect on its value.
(9) Any Portfolio Financial Instrument in foreign markets may entail risks different than the ordinary risks in the market at the Client\'s country of residence.
(10) Investments might be based on unrated securities, which bear significant credit and exchange rate risk. While the Company may attempt to put in place actual or synthetic hedging arrangements to address such risks, there can be no assurances that such hedging arrangements shall be available or that the hedging will be effective.
(11) Notwithstanding that the Company will at all times act in good faith to carry out its obligations under the Portfolio Management Addendum, some of the Investments contemplated herein may be volatile and illiquid and that there is no guarantee of a return on the Investment and no guarantee that a return of or repatriation of all of the invested amounts in a convertible currency will be possible.
(12) There is a possibility that the value of the Portfolio and fixed income securities in general might decline due to an increase in interest rates. Interest rate risk is generally high for longer-term bonds and low for shorter-term bonds.
(13) There is a possibility that income generated by the Portfolio and by fixed income securities in general might decline due to a decrease in interest rates. Income risk is generally high for shorter-term bonds and low for longer-term bonds.
(14) There are significant risks in using derivative instruments. In general terms, a derivative instrument is the one, which value depends on (or is derived from) the value of an underlying asset, interest rate or index. Options, futures, options on futures and interest rate swaps or other interest rate-related transactions are examples of derivatives. Derivative instruments involve risks different from the direct investment in underlying securities. These risks include imperfect correlation between the value of the instrument and the underlying assets; risks of default by the other party to certain transactions; risks that the transactions may result in losses that partially or completely offset gains in portfolio positions; risks that the transactions may not be liquid; and manager risk.
(15) Fixed income securities are subject to credit risk. Credit risk is the possibility that an issuer will fail to make timely payments of interest or principal. Some issuers may not make payments on debt securities held in the Portfolio, causing a loss. Or, an issuer may suffer adverse changes in its financial condition that could lower the credit quality of a security, leading to greater volatility in the price of the security held in the Portfolio. A change in the quality rating of a bond or other security can also affect the security\'s liquidity and make it more difficult for the Company to sell the security. The lower the quality of the fixed income securities, in which the Company may invest, is, the more exposed to the above risks the investment would be.
(16) Fixed income securities are subject to prepayment risk. The issuers of fixed income securities held in the Portfolio may not be able to prepay principal due on the securities, particularly during periods of declining interest rates. The Company may not be able to reinvest that principal at attractive rates, reducing income to the Portfolio. On the other hand, rising interest rates may cause prepayments to occur at slower than expected rates. This effectively lengthens the maturities of the affected securities, making them more sensitive to interest rate changes and the value of securities held in the Portfolio more volatile. (17) The Company may invest in fixed income securities that are not rated as "investment grade" and not insured by any government, municipality or agency.
(18) The Company may invest in the sovereign debt securities of developing countries, which are generally lower quality debt securities. Sovereign debt securities are subject to significant risk that under some political, diplomatic, social or economic circumstances, some developing countries that issue lower-quality debt securities may be unable or unwilling to make principal or interest repayments as they become due.
(19) The Company may invest in non-investment-grade or "junk" bonds, which involve significant risk of default or price changes due to changes in the credit quality of the issuer because they are generally unsecured and may be subordinated to other creditors\' claims. The value of junk bonds often fluctuates in response to company, political or economic developments and decline significantly over short periods of time or during periods of general or regional economic difficulty. During those times, junk bonds could become difficult to value or sell at a fair price. Credit ratings on junk bonds, Company any, do not necessarily reflect their actual market risk.
(20) The Company may get engaged in frequent and active trading of securities in the Portfolio to achieve the Client\'s investment objectives. If the Company does trade in this way, the Portfolio may incur increased transaction costs, which can lower the actual return on investment. Active trading may also increase short-term capital gains and losses, which may affect the taxes the Client will have to pay.
(21) There are special risk characteristics of convertible securities. Convertible securities, which are securities that may be converted into stock or other equity interests, are subject to the market risk of stocks, and, like other debt securities, are also subject to interest rate risk and the credit risk of their issuers.
9.2 The nature and extent of the risks mentioned above vary from country to country and depend on the Financial Instrument on which the investment shall be effected. In general, the risk factor is affected inter alia by:
(1) The type of the intended Investment.
(2) The manner in which the specific investment is effected or the specific Financial Instrument is offered or negotiated or sold.
(3) The needs and profile of the investor.
(4) The market in which the Portfolio Financial Instruments are negotiated and whether such market is regulated or not.
(5) The clearing and settlement system applicable to the relevant market.
(6) The place of registration or business, the capitalisation and the main business of the issuer.
(7) The complexity of the transaction.
(8) Whether the transaction is connected to margin payment or the granting of credit or deposit of collateral or whether it is a leveraged transaction.
(9) The counter-party risk.
9.3 The Client acknowledges and accepts that there may be other risks apart from those mentioned above.
10. Liability of Company and Indemnity
10.1 The Client hereby expressly declares that he is familiar with all the transactions undertaken in the framework of the Portfolio Management Addendum and that he requires neither information nor advice, that he has familiarised himself with all risk and taxation issues connected therewith and or directly or indirectly associated with the management of the portfolio by the IF. He shall, therefore, not hold the Company, any associates, affiliates or subsidiaries responsible or liable for any unfavourable circumstances nor for any losses or damages incurred by or arising as a consequence of any transaction undertaken in the context of the Portfolio Management Addendum.
