No recommandation or offer of services
The information provided on the Website is not tailored or oriented to your personal situation. As a result, the information provided may be completely inappropriate or incorrect for your personal investment decisions. None of the information on the Website constitutes either an invitation or an offer or recommendation to purchase or sell investment instruments, to engage in other transactions or to conclude any legal transaction. In particular, the information provided does not constitutes aids to decisions on financial, legal, fiscal or other consultancy issues, nor may investment or other decisions be made on the basis of this content alone. Professional advice from a qualified specialist is recommended.
Please bear in mind that any forward-looking statements are merely forecasts and are subject to unexpected risks and uncertainties. They can therefore in no way be guaranteed. The value of investment funds and certificates can rise or fall at any time. The future performance of investment products cannot be deduced by the indicated, historical development.

Investments in foreign currencies may also be subject to exchange rate fluctuations and may correspondingly be associated with higher risks. iW Partners SA can therefore neither ensure nor guarantee the maintenance or increase of the value of the invested capital.
