This Website is intended exclusively for information purposes and does not contain any advice (financial or otherwise), offer, advertisement, invitation, or encouragement to buy or sell stocks or other financial instruments, or to enter into any other transaction. The Website does not take into account the investment objectives, financial situation, or particular needs of individual users. The stocks and financial instruments described on this Website are not necessarily suitable for all users. Furthermore, the purchase of these instruments may involve risk. You are therefore strongly encouraged to read the documents relating to the instruments carefully, in particular the section on "Risk Factors," prior to making an investment decision. Changes in interest rates and exchange rates may have a negative effect on the value, price, or yield of said stocks or financial instruments at any time. Information regarding the performance of stocks, financial instruments, or underlying assets is always based on past developments. Historical price developments relating to a stock, a financial instrument, or an underlying asset do not in any way constitute an indication of the future results or price development of any stock, financial instrument, or underlying assets, and they do not in any way represent a guarantee of the future performance or price development of such items. Furthermore, the values and prices as set out on this Website in relation to a given stock, financial instrument, or underlying value do not necessarily represent the current value or price on the respective market at the moment that a user plans to buy or sell a given stock or currency. Values and/or prices stated on this Website do not take into account the size of the transaction. The size of a given transaction may therefore result in differing values and prices.
