Terms & Conditions

The document issued in German is legally binding. This English translation is only for the purpose of convenience.

1. User authorization

When you access this website, EIP grants you revocable and non-transferable permission to use it. This applies only if you agree to these User Terms and Conditions and observe the restrictions they impose. You may not interfere with the operation of the site or seek to influence it in any way. If you do not accept these User Terms and Conditions, you are not allowed to use the information made available about EIP’s products.

2. Important general information

The data on this website is for your information only. It does not constitute investment advice, or advice on tax or legal matters. Nor does it contain any offer, recommendation or incitement to make investment decisions of any kind, e.g. to invest in funds or other structures or to conclude any other kind of contract. In particular, this information should not be used as a substitute for suitable investment and product-related advice. As a user of this website, you agree that the information contained herein will not be the primary basis of any investment decisions and that this website does not contain an exhaustive list of all risks related to the financial products discussed herein.

Unless expressly stated otherwise, all pricing information is non-binding.

With respect to information on investment vehicles, please note that the sole basis for purchase is in each case the relevant sales prospectus, including the contract terms and conditions and the latest audited annual report. These sales documents may be obtained free of charge from the custodian bank of the investment vehicle, from paying agents, or from EIP. [Before you invest in any investment vehicle, you should carefully read the offering documentation of that investment vehicle, including the section(s) regarding risks, and consult with a qualified financial advisor prior to investing.]

Investments in financial instruments may involve a high degree of complexity and risk, or may be subject to fluctuations due to various factors. Investors must therefore be ready and able to accept losses on their invested capital. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

3. Sales restrictions

The information contained in this website is intended for investors only in countries/jurisdictions in which the investment vehicles have been approved for sale. The information is not intended for publication or use by persons or entities in a country where the investment vehicles are not permitted for sale. If documents are made available in English, this does not mean that a distribution license has been granted or applied for. Further details are available on request.

With respect to information on investment vehicles, you are required to strictly follow the selling restrictions contained in the relevant offering documentation.

4. Important notice for users in Switzerland

The information presented on this website qualifies as advertisement under the Swiss Federal Financial Services Act. The European Fund may be offered in Switzerland exclusively to qualified investors within the meaning of the Swiss Federal Collective Investment Schemes Act. The European Fund has not been and will not be registered with the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).

Investment foundations and their investment groups are supervised by the Occupational Pension Supervisory Commission OPSC and are open exclusively to Swiss pension funds.

5. Important notice for US persons

The contents of this website, particularly the published documents and the information contained within, are not permitted for distribution or sale in the USA. Accordingly, the investment vehicles mentioned on this website, in particular, are not on offer in the USA to US citizens or US residents.

6. Forecasts

This website may contain forecasts. Although such forecasts may represent the views and future expectations of EIP, actual developments and results may differ substantially from such expectations. EIP is under no obligation, and expressly excludes any such obligation, to update its forecasts or to change them, on the basis of either new information or future events, or for any other reason.

7. Information / Data

The information presented on this website corresponds to the present state of our knowledge and is intended as a general description of our products and capabilities.

EIP regularly checks and updates the information on this website. Despite due care, however, the data underlying this information may have changed in the period since the last review. We therefore accept no liability and offer no guarantee as to whether the information is up to date, correct or complete, excepting liability for gross negligence or deliberate misconduct.

EIP accepts no liability for losses of any kind arising from the use of content and information on this website.

Nor will EIP give any assurance that any function or content on this website, or the site itself, is free of errors and free from viruses or other damaging elements, or that errors will be corrected.

8. Links to other websites

This website may contain links to other websites. When first setting up the link, EIP will have checked the linked site for illicit content and found none at that time. However, EIP has no influence over the current and future design or content of such linked sites and will accept no liability for such content or design. Any use of these websites is at your own risk. If you find that we have linked to websites with illegal or dubious content (e.g. racial hatred, pornography, fraud, deception), please let us know, as any such link is of course unintentional. EIP will then remove the offending links as soon as possible.

9. Copyright and trademark rights

All rights, titles and claims (including copyright, brands, patents and other intellectual property or other rights) in, for and from all information and content (including all text, data, graphics and logos) on this website are fully subject to the respective current regulations and to the property rights of the respective registered owners. Use of this website does not confer any rights to the content. The copyright for the published content created by EIP itself remains with EIP. No such content, including graphics, sound files, video clips and text, may be duplicated or used, either wholly or in part, in any other electronic or print publication or in any other form without the written permission of EIP. If permission is given, its scope must not be exceeded and attention must be drawn to the origin of the duplicated material and to the rights of EIP. The integration of EIP websites into a framework structure (frames) is permitted only after written agreement in advance from EIP.

10. Communication by email

The internet is publicly accessible, which means that ordinary emails sent via the internet are neither confidential nor secure: it is possible that they may be viewed, captured or modified by third parties, or get lost. Emails may cross borders, even if both sender and receiver are in the same country. You should therefore refrain from sending personal or confidential information, particularly account information, by email. EIP is not liable either to you or to other persons for losses arising from messages sent by ordinary email or any other electronic messaging system. When sending confidential information, therefore, you are advised to use a password protection or encrypted messages.

11. Limits of liability

You use this website at your own risk. You are solely responsible for the consequences of such use and of any downloading of its content.

EIP will accept no liability for any losses of any kind arising from information published on the website, or for failure to publish such information. This applies in particular to losses arising from investment decisions.

This exclusion of liability also applies to direct or indirect compensation claims, claims in tort, atypical claims and claims for consequential loss. This exclusion of liability does not apply where it is prohibited by applicable law, or to gross negligence or intentional misconduct on the part of EIP.
