This website and the information contained herein do not constitute an offer to enter into any contract or agreement nor is it a solicitation to buy or sell any investment.


From a regulatory point of view, the Funds are unregulated collective investment schemes. An unregulated collective investment scheme is not a recognised scheme for the purposes of The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

Certain restrictions apply to the promotion of unregulated collective investment schemes, including the Funds. In accordance with the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and the Financial Conduct Authority New Conduct of Business Sourcebook rules, we are only permitted to promote the Aurum Funds to you, if you fall within specific categories of person. Different restrictions apply in certain jurisdictions.

The Funds cannot be promoted or sold in The United Kingdom, other than under the exemptions permitted by the Financial Services and Market Act 2000 (Promotion of Collective Investment Schemes) (Exemptions) Order 2001. The Funds are not subject to the benefit of any compensation arrangements.

An investment in the Funds is only for the sophisticated and experienced investor who can afford the risks inherent in this type of investment. An investment in the Aurum Funds should be regarded as speculative and should not be used as a complete investment programme. The Aurum Funds do not pay dividends and are not suitable for investors requiring an income. If a prospective investor has any doubts about the nature or suitability of the investment advice should be sought from their own investment adviser.

Prospective investors will be required to provide the information specified under the Money Laundering Regulations in Ireland.

If you are unsure if the Funds are suitable investments for you please contact your Financial Advisor for advice.


This information on this website is issued and approved by Aurum Funds Limited of Ixworth House, 37 Ixworth Place, London, SW3 3QH, United Kingdom. Aurum Funds Limited is authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority. Aurum Funds Limited is exempt from the requirement to hold an Australian financial services licence under the Corporations Act 2001 in respect of financial Services and is regulated by the FCA under UK laws, which differ from Australian laws.


The Funds should be regarded as high-risk investments. Each prospectus, upon the terms of which alone subscriptions will be accepted, sets out in detail the principal risk factors to be considered. Any investment in the Funds may be subject to sudden and large falls in value and losses on realisation could equal the amount invested. Redemptions of investment in the Funds are subject to the restrictions set out in the relevant Prospectus.


Shares in the Funds are valued regularly by the Administrator and may be redeemed in accordance with the provisions in the Prospectus; however the shares are not regularly traded on or under the rules of an investment exchange and accordingly prospective investors may not be able to sell or realise their shares (except by redemption) and they may not be able to obtain reliable information on value (except from the Administrator) or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. The Funds invest from time to time in assets which also may not be readily realisable and the Funds may find it difficult to sell or realise such assets or to obtain reliable information about their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. These matters may prejudice the ability of the Funds to value the Funds’ shares or make redemptions.


The Funds may invest in assets denominated in currencies other than the US Dollar. The shares of the Funds are predominantly denominated in US Dollar, Euro and Sterling, where the objective is to secure as far as possible that there is no gain or loss from currency fluctuations. The Aurum Fortress Fund is available in US Dollar only; and the Aurum Isis Fund is also available in Swiss Francs.

Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value price or income of investments.


Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. The value of units can fall as well as rise.


Although the Funds are listed on the Irish and Bermuda Stock Exchanges there is no regular market in the Funds, but shareholders may redeem their shares at each month end (except in circumstances where redemptions are suspended) by giving the appropriate period of notice; please refer to the terms of the relevant prospectus.


The Funds, or other investment funds in which they are invested, may invest in warrants or derivatives. These instruments contain specific risks different to other investments. On request, Aurum Funds Limited will provide copies of the Disclosure Statements approved by the Financial Conduct Authority thereon.


Aurum Funds Limited makes reasonable efforts to provide accurate information on the website; however, there may be delays, omissions or inaccuracies in the information. The information on the website is as of the dates expressly stated herein and may have changed subsequent to such dates.
