Important legal information concerning investment instruments, products, and services («Financial Products»)

By visiting the SAMCH website (www.serafin-am.com) you confirm that you have carefully read and understood the following important legal information for financial products.

The content of this website is not intended for persons who are subject to a jurisdiction that prohibits the publication or accessing of this content (on the basis of the nationality of the respective person, their place of residence, or for other reasons). Persons who obtain the aforementioned publications must inform themselves about any possible restrictions, and must adhere to these.

The fund-specific information on this website qualifies as advertising and an offer pursuant to the FIDLEG, but not a financial service.
This website is intended for investors domiciled in Switzerland.
Falls in the value of investments and yields cannot be ruled out. Results achieved in the past provide no guarantee of future performance. We do not offer you or third parties any investment or other consultancy on this website. You may not make reference to information or material on this website to make or broker investments or to make or forward other decisions.
Not a recommendation
The information and expressed opinions contained on this website do not represent an invitation, offer, or recommendation to buy, sell or alienate an investment or to participate in a transaction or to render a consultancy or investment service.
Waiver of additional duty to provide information
Before investing in a financial product, the investor should carefully read the available current legal documents as well as all other documents that may be required pursuant to local statutory and regulatory provisions (e.g. the prospectus, the key information document - PRIIP as well as the annual and interim reports of an investment fund). Detailed examination of the legal notices and risk information contained therein is particularly important. Before making an investment decision, it is also recommended that the investor should consult a specialist. The visitor to this website herewith waives additional information from SAMCH.
As a general rule, the higher the risk (price fluctuations), the longer the investment period should be, and the higher the potential returns. The value of the invested capital as well as the income flowing from it (e.g. distributions in connection with collective capital investments) are subject to fluctuations or may cease altogether.
Investments in foreign currencies are directly and indirectly subject to exchange rate fluctuations. Individual financial products are generally subject to higher risks (e.g. collective investment schemes that invest primarily in emerging markets and/or in shares of low-capitalized companies and/or in high-yield bonds).
The main risks are described in detail in the respective current fund documents, which should be read carefully before investing.
