Risk notice regarding investments / Performance information (if included) on the Company’s website
The following is additional disclosure regarding investment risks as well as performance content (if any) included on the Company’s website. As a general rule: The higher the risk (price fluctuations), the longer the investment period should be and the higher the profit opportunities will be. The value of the invested capital and the income resulting out of it (e.g. distributions in connection with investment funds) are subject to fluctuations or may cease altogether. Financial instruments in foreign currencies are directly and indirectly subject to foreign exchange fluctuations. Individual financial instruments are generally subject to higher risks (e.g. investment funds that primarily invest in emerging markets and/or in stocks of companies with a low capitalization and/or in high-yield bonds). A positive past performance does not guarantee a positive performance in the future. Therefore, the Company cannot assume a guarantee for a value preservation (or even a value increase) of the invested capital and the investors must be willing and in a position to accept substantial losses or even total losses.
