Important Legal & Regulatory Information


Risk Warnings and Terms and Conditions of Access to this Website

There are certain legal and regulatory limitations that apply to the information contained on this website and by reading this you are deemed to have read and understood this warning.

By accessing any of the pages on this website, you agree to be bound by the Terms below which may be amended without notice. Your continued use of this website after any changes will mean that you accept such changes. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not access any pages of this website.

Product and Service Availability

The information contained on these pages is intended for persons who are New Zealand residents for tax and investment purposes. In particular the information is not for distribution and under no circumstances is it to be considered as an offer or solicitation to deal in investments in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or distribution would be unlawful including, but not limited to, the United States of America.


This site and its contents are not intended as an offer or solicitation to buy or sell securities or any other specific investment or banking product, nor do they constitute a personal recommendation. For further information regarding all services referred to in this website, please contact ABP Services at the address found in the Contact section. Relevant information will be supplied on request.

No information on this website should be construed as tax advice or investment advice on the suitability of any products or services of ABP Services. If you are in any doubt, you are advised to consult a professional financial adviser.

Investment Risk Warnings

Investment in any scheme described should only be made on the basis of a full comprehension of the applicable offer document (e.g. Prospectus or other Terms and Conditions). The information contained on this website is not to be reproduced, copied or made available to others. Any research or analysis used in the preparation of this website has been procured by ABP Services for its own use and it may have been acted on by ABP Services for its own purposes.

You should be aware that past performance is no guarantee of future performance. The price of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and may be affected by exchange rate movements between currencies. An investor may not get back the original amount invested.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the information contained in this website is accurate and up to date, some of the information may be rendered inaccurate by changes in applicable laws and regulations. For example, the levels and bases of taxation may change. Any reference to taxation relies upon information currently in force.

Warrants involve a high degree of gearing and, therefore, volatility. This means that a relatively small movement in the price of a security to which a warrant relates may result in a disproportionately large movement, favourable as well as unfavourable, in the value of the warrant. You should not invest in warrants unless you understand the extent of your exposure to potential loss which may involve some or all of your initial investment.

Unquoted investments may be difficult to sell at a reasonable price because there will not be an active market in those investments and, in some circumstances, they may be difficult to sell at any price. This may inhibit sales in the event of your wishing to liquidate part or all of your existing investment.

Property is an asset class which can be difficult to sell, which means that you may not be able to sell the investment when you want and we may have to delay acting on your instructions to sell. The value of property is generally a matter of a valuer’s opinion rather than fact.

Full details on specific risk associated with any investments are detailed in the relevant Prospectus or Terms and Conditions and are available on request.
