B. Information about the financial services offered
The financial institution provides asset management services and portfolio-related investment advisory services to its clients. In particular, the financial institution provides financial services in the area of collective investment schemes. For information on the various collective investment schemes, the general risks, characteristics and modes of operation, please refer to the relevant prospectuses and factsheets on this webpage. The financial institution does not guarantee a return or success in the context of the investment activity. The investment activity can therefore lead to an increase in value but also to a loss in value. The financial institution has all the necessary authorizations to provide the services described above.
C. Customer segmentation
Financial service providers must assign their customers to a legally defined customer segment and comply with the corresponding behavioral obligations. The Financial Services Act provides for the segments “private customers”, “professional customers” and “institutional customers”. A customer classification is determined for each customer as part of the cooperation with the financial institution. Subject to compliance with certain conditions, the customer can change the customer classification by so-called opting-in or opting-out.
D. Information about risks and costs
General risks in trading with financial instruments
The investment advisory and asset management services involve financial risks. The financial institution shall hand out the brochure “Risks in Trading with Financial Instruments” to all customers prior to conclusion of the contract. This brochure can also be viewed at www.swissbanking.org.
Clients of the financial institution may contact their client advisor at any time if they have any further questions.
Risks in connection with the service offered
For a presentation of the various risks that may arise from the investment strategy for the client’s assets, please refer to the relevant investment advisory or asset management/fund agreements.
A fee is charged for the services rendered, which is normally calculated on the assets under management and / or on a performance basis. For more detailed information, please refer to the relevant investment advisory or asset management/fund contracts.
E. Information about bindings to third parties
In connection with the financial services offered by the financial institution, economic ties may exist with third parties. The acceptance of payments from third parties and their treatment are regulated in detail and comprehensively in the respective investment advisory or asset management/fund contracts.
F. Information about the market offer considered
The financial institution basically follows an “open universe approach” and tries to make the best possible choice for the customer when selecting financial instruments.
