Information regarding risks
Positive performance in the past is no guarantee of positive performance in the future. The value of an investment being lower upon sale than the initial value, cannot be excluded. It is also possible to lose the entire capital invested and, in this case, the loss may be greater than the capital invested. Investments in foreign currency are subject to normal exchange-rate fluctuations. The value of equity markets and the economies of developing nations may fluctuate considerably. Collective investments (for example mutual funds) in emerging markets are similarly exposed to greater risks. It may happen that an investment cannot be realized immediately with an ensuing, temporary difficulty in respect of sale, realization of any profits or obtaining precise information on the value or degree of related risk. Before making any investment you are advised to obtain appropriate information and to seek professional advice on the matter.
Furthermore, Cornèr Bank Ltd. assumes no liability and provides no guarantee as to the functionalities of its sites, and neither does it guarantee that such functionalities will be immune from interruption or without error, that any such errors will be corrected or that the sites or the server which makes it accessible to the public contain no viruses or other potentially harmful components.
Exclusion from liability
In no circumstance whatsoever – including negligence – may Cornèr Bank Ltd. be held liable for loss or damage of whatsoever type, whether direct or consequential, deriving from or in connection with access, use, services, browsing or linking from and to other sites, originating from the Bank’s sites.
