B.     Information on the offered financial services

The financial institution provides asset management services and transaction-based investment advisory as well as execution only services to its clients. 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 in value and to a depreciation in value.

The financial institution has the necessary licenses to perform the above services.

C.     Client segmentation

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.
