Jaaims relies on share markets to derive a return and is a long-only trading tool. As such returns are not guaranteed and you should be aware of the following risks and other factors affecting performance:
Share markets carry a risk of loss and do not always go up. As Jaaims is a long only strategy (i.e. it does not offer short-selling) it can only make a profit if stocks go up in price during the trade period. Jaaims seeks to manage investment risk by actively trading and updating recommendations every 15 minutes. The app may also retain high levels of cash where it does not see trades having a high likelihood of success which may serve to reduce losses that might occur if you were fully invested (e.g. via products such as managed funds or exchange traded funds).
There is a risk Jaaims will not be able to execute trades in a timely manner due to connection issues with your broker. We manage this risk by actively working through any issues with our connected brokers.
Users can select their preferred position size. Having a large position size relative to funds invested will mean a lower amount of trades and may result in higher volatility. In general we recommend a maximum position size of 5% of your portfolio but Jaaims gives you the ability to tailor your trading strategy to your own individual needs.
Performance for each individual user will depend on the stocks you select for Jaaims to trade. The Smart Portfolio feature offered in the Professional subscription will allow for the highest number of stocks to be selected in your portfolio to maximise your opportunity set.
Your choice of broker will affect your performance after costs. As Jaaims trades shares on international stock markets you should be aware of brokerage as well as foreign exchange costs.
