Recommendations

Comgest S.A. cannot be held liable for any decision made on the basis of information contained on this website or for any use of such information by a third party. It is the investor’s responsibility, before any investment decision, to check with his or her usual advisors that there are no restrictions on his or her access to our products related to his or her legal status, and in particular that he or she is not a citizen of a country whose laws prohibit or regulate access to certain products.

The investor should also establish how his or her assets are to be allocated in view of his or her objectives, constraints and investment horizon. Comgest S.A. recommends that the investor check in particular that the investment horizon and investment category of the chosen fund, as specified in its prospectus, correspond to his or her objectives and constraints, including regulatory constraints. Comgest S.A. recommends the investor not to invest in a fund before carefully reading both the prospectus and all the related legal documentation made available on this website. Reading the prospectus is indispensable for understanding the product’s wider context, the terms and conditions relating to subscription and any sale restrictions.

It is the investor’s responsibility to ensure that he or she is authorised to invest and to check the related legal, accounting and tax implications with the help of at least one specialised advisor. Comgest S.A. does not offer such financial, tax or legal advice to investors.
Comgest S.A. recommends that the investor acquaint him- or herself with the rules governing the financial markets and the related risks. The investor should always bear in mind when making investment decisions that many investments can result in significant losses. The investor’s attention is drawn to the fact that the operation and supervision of certain markets may diverge from the standards that prevail on the major international financial markets.

Performances

All of the products that appear on our website are subject to market fluctuations and no guarantee can be given as to their future performance. The investor is reminded that past performance is not an indication of future performance. Investment involves risk, the products may not increase in value and may incur significant loss. The investor may not get back the capital invested. In the event that the investor’s reference currency is different from the product’s reference currency, any gains may be amplified or reduced depending on exchange rate fluctuations. Exchange rate fluctuations can have a negative impact on the product’s value, price or income. There can be no assurance that the products will achieve any stated investment objectives.


The products are not managed relative to any benchmark index and do not seek to replicate any index. Benchmark indices are shown for comparative purposes only and concern historical data.
References to past rankings and awards are not an indication of future rankings or awards.
