# Policyholders should note that while the Affected Investment Option is denominated in GBP, the Default Investment Option is in EUR. This means the Affected Invesment Option and the Default Investment Option are subject to different foreign exchange risk exposure, and that any exchange rate movements between these two currencies may affect the policy performance. If your policy currency is not in EUR, your investment will be subject to foreign exchange risk when switched into the Default Investment Option.
