Any individual who chooses to invest in any securities should do so with caution. Investing in securities is speculative and carries a high degree of risk; you may lose some or all of the money that is invested.  Always research your own investments and consult with a regulated investment advisor or licensed stock broker before investing.

Shares in companies referred to may be relatively illiquid and hard to trade, therefore riskier than other investments and there could be a large bid/offer spread, so if you need to sell soon after you’ve bought, you might get less back than you paid. This can make them riskier than other investments.
