These Additional Terms and Conditions are to be read in conjunction with the main Terms and Conditions governing the use of the Phoenix Wealth website.

No advice on investment business can be obtained through the Service. Please remember that past performance of an investment is not necessarily a guide to future performance.
The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

You must not disclose your Security Details to any other person or record your Security Details in any way that may result in them becoming known to another person.

Please note that after initial registration Phoenix Wealth will never contact you, or ask anyone to do so on its behalf, with a request to disclose your Security Details in full. If you receive any such request from anyone (even if they are using Phoenix Wealth's name and logo and appear to be genuine) then it is likely to be fraudulent and you must not supply your Security Details to them in any circumstances. You should report any such requests to Phoenix Wealth immediately. 

Subject to any obligations Phoenix Wealth may have under common law, Phoenix Wealth will not be liable for any unauthorised use of your Security Details resulting from negligence on your part or loss arising therefrom and you must notify Phoenix Wealth immediately if you discover that the security of your Security Details has been lost or compromised.

If Phoenix Wealth believes in its reasonable opinion that a fund switch or redirection has been invalidly requested then it reserves the right not to accept the transaction.

The records Phoenix Wealth maintains of any instructions you give Phoenix Wealth via this Service will be final evidence of your instructions and of the time they are given except in the case of manifest error.

Fund Switching and Redirections

When you place a switch or redirection instruction, Phoenix Wealth will send you an email confirming that your instruction has been received.
Where an instruction has not been validly received Phoenix Wealth will, where reasonable, send you notification of this, otherwise if you do not receive notification that your instruction has been received then you should send a new instruction.
This instruction will be treated by Phoenix Wealth as a new instruction and the switch or redirection will be carried out based on the time and date of that new instruction.
Any changes to your funds will not appear on the Service until a minimum of three working days have elapsed.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the switch or redirection has taken place by checking your policy after the said lapse of time.
