Risk and reward profile (in the meaning of the KIID/Wesentliche Anlegerinformationen)2
Risk class (Assessment of the sales agent)3
1: Comprehensive information regarding opportunities and risks can be found in the current sales prospectus (which is available in German only).
2: The risk and reward profile uses a ratio based on volatilities (see the KIID/Wesentliche Anlegerinformationen). This risk indicator relies on historical data and cannot be used as a basis upon which to forecast future performance. 1 represents low risk and a potentially lower reward and 7 stands for high risk and a potentially higher reward.
3: The sales agent’s risk class assessment is not the same as the risk profile in the sales prospectus and the risk and reward profile in the KIID (Wesentliche Anlegerinformationen) and is carried out from the point of view of an investor whose base currency is the same as that of the share class. 1 stands for low risk, 7 for high risk. For example, an investor operating from the euro area who wishes to invest in the CHF share class must consider that the investment will also be subject to a currency risk.
