The financial institution provides asset management services and transaction‐based investment advisory services to its clients. In the case of a transaction-based investment advisory mandate with the financial institution, a personal recommendation relating to individual financial instruments is provided to the client.
The decision to buy or sell remains always ultimately with the client. The financial institution does not guarantee any yield nor performance of investment activities. The investment activity can therefore lead to an appreciation in value and to a depreciation in value.
For detailed information on the material rights and obligations arising from an asset management or an investment advisory contract, please refer to the relevant contracts entered into between the financial institution and their clients.
The financial institution has the necessary licenses to perform the above services.
Financial service providers are required to classify their customers into a client segmentation as legally established. The Financial Services Act provides for «retail customers», «professional customers» and «institutional customers» segments. For each customer, a customer classification is determined within the framework of the cooperation with the financial institution. Subject to certain conditions, the customer may change the customer classification by opting in or opting out.
The investment advisory and asset management services involve financial risks. The financial institution shall provide all clients with the « Risks associated with Financial Instruments Transactions» brochure prior to the execution of the contract. This brochure can also be found at www.swissbanking.org.
Clients of the financial institution may contact their client advisor at any time if they have any further questions.
For a description of the various risks that may arise from the investment strategy for clients’ assets, please refer to the relevant investment advisory or asset management agreements.
In the case of investment advice, the financial institution shall provide its retail clients with the basic information sheet of the recommended financial instrument.
A fee is charged for the services rendered, which is usually 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 Agreements.
In connection with the financial services offered by the financial institution, commercial relationships with third parties may exist. The acceptance of payments from third parties and their treatment are detailed governed in the respective Investment Advisory or Asset Management Agreements.
The financial institution basically follows an «open universe approach» and tries to make the best possible choice for the client when selecting financial instruments. The financial institution's own collective investments can – where appropriate – be used in the asset management mandates or recommended as part of investment advice.
