2. Information on the offered financial services

The financial institution provides portfolio management services, portfolio-based and transaction-based investment advisory services as well as execution-only 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 also provides financial services in collective investment schemes. For further information on the various collective investment schemes, the general risks, specifications, and operating procedures, please refer to the relevant prospectuses and factsheets.

The financial institution does not guarantee any yield nor performance of investment activities. The investment activity can therefore lead to an appreciation or a depreciation in value.

3. Client segmentation

Financial service providers are required to classify their clients into a client segmentation according to the law and adhere to the respective code-of-conduct. The Financial Services Act provides for «retail clients», «professional clients» and «institutional clients» segments. For each client, a client classification is determined within the framework of the cooperation with the financial institution. Subject to certain conditions, the client may change the client classification by opting out.

4. Information on risks and costs

General risks associated with financial instruments transactions

The investment advisory and portfolio 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

Clients of the financial institution may contact their client advisor at any time if they have any further questions.

Risks associated with the offered services

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 portfolio 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.

Information on costs

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 portfolio management agreements.

5. Information about relationships with third parties

In connection with the financial services offered by the financial institution, economic ties may exist with third parties.

6. Information on the market offer considered

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.
