In relation to the offering of the products described on this website, see also paragraph “Selling restrictions” below.
No offer, no solicitation to purchase, subscribe or sell
These webpages give the user access to information that Bank Vontobel AG (referred to collectively with affiliates as "Vontobel") has decided to make available, and do not constitute and are not to be construed as, a solicitation or offer by Vontobel, to purchase, subscribe for or sell securities. Investors are not able to purchase, subscribe or sell the securities described on these webpages directly from Vontobel but through their bank or intermediary only.
No contract to provide information; no advice; hotline; complaints
The use of these webpages shall not create a contractual relationship with Vontobel extending beyond these Terms and Conditions. In particular, the information presented on these webpages shall not be deemed to be an offer by Vontobel to enter into an advisory agreement or any other contract to provide information either on a gratuitous or non-gratuitous basis. In light of this, the user's visit to these webpages or retrieval of information contained therein shall not constitute a contract between Vontobel and the user to provide information.
Neither the information on these webpages nor any information which users may receive through a hotline provided on these webpages shall constitute any investment, tax or other advisory service. Such information does not take into account the user's specific situation as regards, inter alia, his or her knowledge of the relevant securities, investment targets and risk appetite, financial situation as well as his or her tax and accounting position. Such information is no substitute for the advice by your bank or intermediary or any other tax or financial adviser, which is essential in each individual case prior to making any purchasing, subscribing or selling decision.
Users should direct any objections or complaints relating to these webpages in writing to the following address:
Bank Vontobel AG
In addition, users have the option of addressing their concerns via the online complaint form.
No financial analysis
Information provided on the webpages does not constitute financial analysis and also does not satisfy the statutory requirements for ensuring the unbiased nature of financial analysis; nor is such information subject to a ban on trading prior to the publication of financial analyses.
The purchase/subscription of securities is associated with financial risks. Given unfavourable conditions, such risks may materialise and lead to a total loss of the invested capital. Potential investors should carefully read the issuance program, the relevant final terms and any supplements to the issuance program in order to understand the risks associated with an investment in the securities. Potential investors should consult their own bank or intermediary or any other tax or financial adviser prior to making any purchasing, subscribing or selling decision.
The price information contained on these webpages originates either from third-party sources such as financial information service providers or has been calculated by Vontobel itself and should not be relied upon to predict future values or prices.
In some cases, current prices of securities or underlyings may be shown with a time delay. Users can find additional price information, in particular information pertaining to the past price performance of the underlying, at the place referred to in the prospectus for the relevant security. Historical price performance is not a reliable indicator of future price performance of the underlying or the securities. It should be noted that Vontobel provides no warranty for the accuracy of the price information and that price information shall be subject to correction at any time (see also with respect to the exclusion of warranty in paragraph “No warranty for content” below). Potential investors should consult their own bank or intermediary or any other tax or financial adviser prior to making any purchasing, subscribing or selling decision.
Information on returns
On these webpages, all information concerning returns refers to gross returns which do not factor in costs that will be incurred and, unless expressly indicated otherwise, in taxes to be paid by the relevant investor. Investors will, in fact, incur costs and taxes which diminish returns or may result in losses. These include, for example, securities account costs or transaction costs. The extent of the impact of any such costs and tax on the net return depends on the amount of the investment and the costs and tax actually incurred by the relevant investor. Potential investors should consult their own bank or intermediary and/or any other tax or financial adviser prior to making any purchasing, subscribing or selling decision.
Key Information Document
If required by applicable laws or if Vontobel decides to make available without the obligation to do so, Key Information Documents (KIDs) can be retrieved on these webpages on the relevant product detail site section.
Users considering the purchase/subscription of securities described on these webpages should carefully read the issuance program, which, in addition to the final terms and any supplements to the issuance program, is published on these webpages and on prospectus.vontobel.com and is obtainable free of charge from the lead manager, Bank Vontobel AG, Gotthardstrasse 43, 8022 Zurich, Switzerland.
Conflicts of interest
It should be noted that, from time to time, Vontobel purchases or sells securities, commodities, futures and options for hedging and other purposes, or holds positions (long or short) in these which are identical to or connected with such securities. This may possibly have an adverse impact on the value of the securities. In addition, Vontobel may be the calculation agent or sponsor of underlyings and, as such, may make determinations which adversely affect the value of the securities.
Commission payments by Vontobel
Vontobel may pay commissions to distribution partners in connection with the distribution of any securities. Such commission payments will reduce the return the investor is able to achieve. If commissions are paid, you will find information pertaining to the amount of these commission payments in the relevant final terms or you may obtain such information from your distributor and the respective issuer upon request.
