The financial institution provides its clients with asset management services, portfolio and transaction-related investment advisory services and «execution-only» services. In the case of an investment advisory mandate with the financial institution, clients are given a personal recommendation relating to individual financial instruments. Ultimately, the decision to buy or sell always remains with the client.
The financial institution guarantees neither a return nor a success in the investment activity. The investment activity can therefore lead to an increase in value but also to a loss in value.
Financial service providers must assign their clients to a legally pre-defined client segment and comply with the corresponding conduct obligations. The Financial Services Act provides for the segments «private clients», «professional clients» and «institutional clients». A client classification is defined for each client as part of the cooperation with the financial institution. Subject to certain conditions, the client can change the client classification by opting in or opting out.
General risks in trading with financial instruments
Investment advisory and asset management services entail financial risks. The financial institution provides all clients with the brochure «Risks involved in trading financial instruments» before the contract is concluded. This can also be viewed at www.swissbanking.org.
If clients of the financial institution have any further questions, they can contact their client advisor at any time.
Risks in connection with the service offered
For a description of the various risks that may arise from the investment strategy for the client’s assets, please refer to the corresponding investment advisory or asset management agreements.
When providing investment advice, the financial institution provides its private clients with the basic information sheet of the recommended financial instrument.
A fee is charged for the services provided, 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 and/or asset management agreements.
Economic ties to third parties may exist in connection with the financial services offered by the financial institution. The acceptance of payments from third parties and their treatment are regulated in detail and comprehensively in the investment advisory or asset management agreements.
The financial institution generally pursues a «best-in-class» approach, i.e. it attempts to make the best possible choice for the client when selecting financial instruments. The financial institution's own collective investments may - where appropriate - be used in the asset management mandates or recommended as part of investment advice.
