Product risk rating assigned to product is based on risk rating methodology of Futu Securities International (Hong Kong) Limited (“FSIL”). Products are rated on 5 risk levels (please refer to the table below for details). Our risk rating methodology takes into account a variety of factors, both qualitative and quantitative, to assist customers to make informed investment decision. Factors being used are product specific. Example of factors include product type and characteristics, product complexity, investment period and redemption restriction, market risk, credit risk rating, concentration risk, price volatility, economic and political situation and product underlying currency, regulatory risk, etc.
FSIL will review and update product risk rating on a regular basis to reflect current market situation.
The following table summarizes the definition of each risk rating under our methodology:
|Risk Rating||Risk Classification||Definition|
|R1||Very Low||In general, minimal chance of losing a significant portion of your capital (although this is not guaranteed), and expected to demonstrate minimal price fluctuations.|
|R2||Low||In general, low chance of losing a significant portion of your capital (although this is not guaranteed), and expected to demonstrate moderately low level of price fluctuations.|
|R3||Moderate||In general, moderate chance of losing a significant portion of your capital (although this is not guaranteed), and expected to demonstrate moderate level of price fluctuations.|
|R4||High||In general, moderately high chance of losing a significant portion of your capital, and expected to demonstrate moderately high level of price fluctuations.|
|R5||Very High||In general, high chance of losing a significant portion of your capital, and expected to demonstrate high level of price fluctuations.|
Customers should note that the risk rating assigned by FSIL may be different from other financial institutions. Also, customers could hold different views from FSIL. Customers should not solely rely on FSIL's product risk rating assessment in making investment decision. Customers are encouraged to consider other product features to ensure such investment is suitable for their own circumstances.
FSIL uses Risk Profile Questionnaire (“RPQ”) to establish customer’s own investment strategy by obtaining information on their investment knowledge, investment experience and risk tolerance level. Customer risk is categorized into five levels, ranking from low to high: Conservative, Moderate, Balanced, Growth and Aggressive, by taking into account of customer’s basic information, financial status, investment experience, investment period, investment objectives, risk appetite, etc.
Customer risk categorization factors:
|Financial Status||Total Asset|
|Investment Experience||Investment Knowledge|
|Past Investment Experience|
|Investment Objective||Investment Objective|
|Risk Appetite||Risk Tolerance Level|
Customer Risk Level Classification:
|Classification||Classification Customer Risk Tolerance Level||Description|
|Conservative||Very Low||Expect the principal is absolutely safe and can only accept investments with a relatively lower risk and small price fluctuations in order to achieve smaller returns.|
|Moderate||Low||Expect the risk to principal loss is small and can accept investments with low to moderate risks and price fluctuations in order to obtain a more stable investment return.|
|Balanced||Moderate||Able to accept investments with moderate risk and price fluctuations in pursuit of asset appreciation and current returns.|
|Growth||High||Able to accept investments with medium to high risk and price fluctuations in pursuit of higher returns and long-term appreciation of assets.|
|Aggressive||Very High||Able to accept investments with high risk and price fluctuations in pursuit of great returns and long-term appreciation of assets.|
Before the customers enter into transactions of products, FSIL would conduct a comprehensive suitability assessment of the customers by using the customer and product risk as the base, and considering factors such as client's investment objectives, investment period, investor type, derivative knowledge, and investment concentration risk, in order to make investment recommendations to them.
In general, customers should understand that customers should invest in product according to their financial capability, investment objectives and risk appetite. Products with a product risk rating above their customer risk rating are not suitable. Customers cannot invest in such products unless it has fulfilled the suitability assessment.
Customers should make their own judgment on the risks and should consult their own legal, financial, tax accounting and other professional advisors, as necessary, to ensure that any decision made is suitable with regard to their circumstances and financial position.
