This website is not intended for retail clients or non-UK entities.
Towers Watson Investment Management Limited (“TWIM”) has prepared this material for general information purposes only and it should not be considered a substitute for specific professional advice. In particular, its contents are not intended by TWIM to be construed as the provision of investment, legal, accounting, tax or other professional advice or recommendations of any kind, or to form the basis of any decision to do or to refrain from doing anything. As such, this material should not be relied upon for investment or other financial decisions and no such decisions should be taken on the basis of its contents without seeking specific advice. Nothing in this material is intended as an offer or solicitation with respect to the purchase or sale of any security or other financial instrument or any investment management or advisory service.
This material is subject to revision and amendment from time to time. Users of this website who intend to purchase or subscribe for shares on the AMX platform are reminded that any such purchase or subscription may only be made solely on the basis of the information contained in the offering documents relating to any ICAV or sub-funds under the AMX platform, which may contain additional or different information to that contained on this website.
This material is based on information available to TWIM at the date it was uploaded onto the website and takes no account of subsequent developments after that date. In preparing this material we have relied upon data supplied to us by third parties. Whilst reasonable care has been taken to gauge the reliability of this data, we provide no guarantee as to the accuracy or completeness of this data and TWIM and its affiliates and their respective directors, officers and employees accept no responsibility and will not be liable for any errors or misrepresentations in the data made by any third party. Any opinions on managed accounts (including the AMX platform), investment managers, service providers, hedge funds or any products contained in this material are not intended to imply, nor should they be interpreted as conveying, any form of guarantee or assurance by TWIM as to their future performance.

The AMX platform is a “managed account platform” meaning that whilst the platform infrastructure is designed and controlled by TWIM and its affiliates, the day-to-day management of each fund portfolio will typically be undertaken by a third party manager (“Trading Manager”) identified and selected by TWIM. No person should invest in any AMX fund unless they are willing to entrust all aspects of management of the fund to the AMX platform and, significantly, all aspects of the management of the fund’s investments to the relevant Trading Manager selected to manage the fund’s assets (which Trading Manager – in many cases, if not all – will have no affiliation to TWIM). The fund’s success will depend primarily on the efforts of the relevant Trading Manager.
An investment in any AMX fund will expose the investor to substantial risks, including, without limitation, risks that relate to: (i) the operations and structure of the AMX platform; (ii) the relevant Trading Manager; (iii) the investment strategy implemented by the relevant Trading Manager; (iv) the investment techniques of the fund implemented by the relevant Trading Manager; (v) the assets acquired by the relevant Trading Manager on the fund’s behalf; and (vi) investing in investment funds generally.
The strategy of any fund, even if implemented according to design, may not produce the performance results anticipated by the Trading Manager. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that a fund will achieve its investment objective.
Trading Managers may use proprietary investment strategies that are based on considerations and factors that are not fully disclosed to TWIM or the fund. These strategies may involve risks under some market conditions that are not anticipated by the relevant Trading Managers, TWIM or the fund.
The success of a fund is potentially impacted by the ability of TWIM to identify, select and monitor Trading Managers. In addition, the success of a fund is primarily dependent on the ability of Trading Managers to develop and use investment techniques that effectively implement the relevant fund’s investment strategies and thereby achieve the fund’s investment objectives. Subjective decisions made by the Trading Managers may cause a fund to incur losses or to miss profit opportunities on which it would otherwise have capitalised.
