- Regional Focus – The Fund invests in a particular region so is less diversified than a global portfolio.
- Process risk – There may be issues with the systems and mathematical models that Winton uses to implement the Fund's strategy or the processes and procedures related to those systems.

A more comprehensive list of risks is provided in the Company's prospectus and Fund supplement.
