Important Notes

1.

The BCOM Joyful Retirement MPF Scheme ("Scheme") is a registered MPF Scheme.

2.

Investment involves risks and not all investment choices available under the Scheme would be suitable for everyone. There is no assurance on investment returns and your investments / accrued benefits may suffer significant loss.

3.

The BCOM Guaranteed (CF) Fund in the Scheme is a capital and return guaranteed fund. Where participation to this constituent fund is less than 60 months, the repayment of capital and return on investment are not guaranteed and the withdrawal values are fully exposed to fluctuations in the value of the constituent fund’s asset. The Bank of Communications Co. Ltd., Hong Kong Branch is the guarantor to this constituent fund. Your investments are therefore subject to the credit risks of the guarantor. Please refer to the sub-section "3.2 BCOM Guaranteed (CF) Fund" under the sub-section "3. Statements of investment policies" under the section "III. FUND OPTIONS, INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES" and Appendix 1 to this MPF Scheme Brochure for details of the guarantee features and guarantee conditions.

4.

You should consider your own risk tolerance level and financial circumstances before making any investment choices. When, in your selection of constituent funds, you are in doubt as to whether a certain constituent fund is suitable for you (including whether it is consistent with your investment objectives), you should seek financial and / or professional advice and choose the constituent fund(s) most suitable for you taking into account your circumstances. In the event that you do not make any investment choices, please be reminded that your contributions made and / or benefits transferred into the Scheme will be invested into the MPF default investment strategy ("DIS"), and the DIS may not necessarily be suitable for you.

5.

You should consider your own risk tolerance level and financial circumstances before investing in the DIS. You should note that the BCOM Core Accumulation Fund and the BCOM Age 65 Plus Fund may not be suitable for you, and there may be a risk mismatch between the BCOM Core Accumulation Fund and the BCOM Age 65 Plus Fund and your risk profile (the resulting portfolio risk may be greater than your risk preference). You should seek financial and/or professional advice if you are in doubt as to whether the DIS is suitable for you, and make the investment decision most suitable for you taking into account your circumstances.

6.

You should note that the implementation of the DIS may have an impact on your MPF investments and benefits. You should consult with the Approved Trustee if you have doubts on how you are being affected.

7.

Please do not invest based on this website alone. For further details including the product features, investment policies, investment objectives, charges and risks involved, please refer to the MPF Scheme Brochure of the Scheme.   

We have been launching a series of constituent funds with different investment objectives and in various risk levels for your appropriate selection.

Risk inherent is determined by Bank of Communications Trustee Limited based on the constituent funds’ volatility and the percentage of the constituent funds being invested in equities and will be reviewed regularly. The risk inherent is provided for reference only and has not taken into account investors’ own risk tolerance level and financial circumstances. Whilst the risk inherent may be considered by investors in their analysis of the constituent funds, it is nonetheless the obligation of each investor to ensure that a constituent fund is suitable for him / her. Investors cannot therefore substitute their own judgment / assessment of the constituent funds with the risk inherent provided by the Bank of Communications Trustee Limited who determines the risk inherent.
