This Website is a promotional communication and is for information purposes only. The users of this Website are requested to read the following information carefully and to take it into account.
The products, services or information described on this Website are intended for professional and institutional investors. In addition, the products, services or information may also be intended for private individuals to the extent permitted by the applicable regulations of the country selected by the user of this Website. A country's regulations may be applicable on the basis of citizenship, residence or other reasons.
Access to products, services or information may be prohibited to certain persons by local regulations, in particular persons and companies based in the United States, Canada, Japan or the United Kingdom. Persons subject to such prohibitions are not permitted to access this Website. This Website is not directed to any person in any jurisdiction where such access is prohibited by restrictions applicable in that jurisdiction. Please contact a competent consultant for further details.
The information and opinions published on this Website do not constitute a solicitation or offer to buy or sell securities or other investment products, nor an invitation or offer to engage in any other transactions. They are for information purposes only.
The information and opinions available on this Website are not to be understood as recommendations or decision-making aids for investments and other decisions of the investor and are in no way of an advisory nature. The investor is called upon to seek advice from a competent advisor, to seek clarifications independently, or to obtain further information before making his investment decision. If a person without direct contact invests in an investment product solely on the basis of the information on this Website, there is no additional duty to provide advice and the duty to provide advice is therefore deemed to be fulfilled.
Users of this Website are requested to educate themselves about the risks involved in securities trading. We expressly recommend that you read the Swiss Bankers Association's risk disclosure document "Special Risks in Securities Trading", which contains information on the risks involved in securities trading.
We draw the attention of investors to the fact that past performance is no guarantee of success in the future. The value of an investment can rise or fall at any time. It may happen that a position cannot be liquidated in time before a loss occurs. Due to the potential fluctuations in value of the invested capital, it is possible that the investor may not get back the capital initially invested. If investments are made in foreign currencies, they are also subject to currency fluctuations.
In any case, you should not enter into any securities transactions without precise knowledge of the risks involved and without know if substantial losses can be borne by the investor. We particularly recommend that you do not make any investments without professional advice.
Sustainability means striving for economic success and long-term value creation while taking into account non-financial (i.e. environmental and social) factors. In addition to many other questions and considerations concerning the "welfare of the general public", ESG is one of several important aspects in the investment process of SG Value Partners. ESG considerations in the context of fundamental investment analysis are part of our ethical and moral principles as responsible citizens.
Certain investment strategies of SG Value Partners selectively integrate sustainability criteria as part of the selection of individual positions. At the discretion of SG Value Partners, topics such as corporate strategy, corporate governance, transparency as well as a company's product and service offering can be taken into account for the assessment. SG Value Partners can rely on third-party data as well as its own qualitative and quantitative analyses. One objective of the assessment is to determine exclusions due to factors considered to be particularly critical (minimum exclusion of companies with activities controversial in accordance with international standards).
For certain investment strategies, however, SG Value Partners pursues traditional investment objectives (increase in yield) in combination with environmental and social characteristics. They use indices as reference values for sustainable investments, which take into account standard and value-based exclusion criteria as well as exclusion criteria for controversial business practices.
SG Value Partners does not evaluate any adverse effects of investment decisions on sustainability factors. Such concrete effects are currently not measurable in the investment strategies used.
The structure and level of total remuneration is aligned with SG Value Partners’ risk policies and designed so as to enhance financial and non-financial risk awareness.
The company’s salary and remuneration procedures are appropriate in accordance with the principle of proportionality, its size, and its risk profile, and that motivates their employees to promote the long-term economic success and value creation of the entrusted assets. It particularly refrains from providing any financial incentive for conduct that might damage the investors’ interests or taking inappropriate financial or non-financial risks in order to achieve short-term success.
Variable remuneration is funded through the long-term economic performance of the firm. Variable remuneration shall be granted according to sustainable criteria. The remuneration system of the Compliance function’s employees is designed in such a way that there is no incentive to create conflict of interest.
According to its business policy, SG Value Partners does not collect retrocessions from third parties. In the event a retrocession is received from a third party, it will be forwarded immediately. The transfer is made either to a client of SG Value Partners or to another financial intermediary.
However, SG Value Partners may grant retrocessions or discounts to third parties in connection with the distribution or placement of the investment funds managed by SG Value Partners. These payments are taken in full from the fees due to SG Value Partners and do not result in any additional burden on the fund’s assets.
The services of SG Value Partners do not include advice concerning the tax situation of the customer or legal advice. The tax situation of the customer in his country of domicile is not the responsibility of SG Value Partners but of the customer. SG Value Partners recommends that clients seek appropriate advice from a local tax specialist or legal advisor.
The Client is responsible for ensuring that the current and future assets held with the Bank and the income, capital gains and the like generated thereby are properly declared to the competent tax authorities and will continue to be properly declared in the future. The client is responsible for all tax liabilities related to the assets managed by the asset manager.
