This Website is a promotional communication and is for information purposes only. The users of this Website are requested to read the following information carefully and to take it into account.
The products, services or information described on this Website are intended for private and institutional investors in Switzerland. In addition, the products, services or information may also be intended for private individuals to the extent permitted by the applicable regulations of the country selected by the user of this Website. A country's regulations may be applicable on the basis of citizenship, residence or other reasons.
Access to products, services or information may be prohibited to certain persons by local regulations, in particular persons and companies based in the United States, Canada, Japan or the United Kingdom. Persons subject to such prohibitions are not permitted to access this Website. This Website is not directed to any person in any jurisdiction where such access is prohibited by restrictions applicable in that jurisdiction. Please contact a competent consultant for further details.
The information and opinions published on this Website do not constitute a solicitation or offer to buy or sell securities or other investment products, nor an invitation or offer to engage in any other transactions. They are for information purposes only.
The information and opinions available on this Website are not to be understood as recommendations or decision-making aids for investments and other decisions of the investor and are in no way of an advisory nature. The investor is called upon to seek advice from a competent advisor, to seek clarifications independently, or to obtain further information before making his investment decision. If a person without direct contact invests in an investment product solely on the basis of the information on this Website, there is no additional duty to provide advice and the duty to provide advice is therefore deemed to be fulfilled.
Users of this Website are requested to educate themselves about the risks involved in securities trading. We expressly recommend that you read the Swiss Bankers Association's risk disclosure document "Special Risks in Securities Trading", which contains information on the risks involved in securities trading.
We draw the attention of investors to the fact that past performance is no guarantee of success in the future. The value of an investment can rise or fall at any time. It may happen that a position cannot be liquidated in time before a loss occurs. Due to the potential fluctuations in value of the invested capital, it is possible that the investor may not get back the capital initially invested. If investments are made in foreign currencies, they are also subject to currency fluctuations.
In any case, you should not enter into any securities transactions without precise knowledge of the risks involved and without know if substantial losses can be borne by the investor. We particularly recommend that you do not make any investments without professional advice.
Sustainability means the pursuit of economic success and long-term value creation while at the same time taking into account non-financial (i.e. ecological and social) factors.
For its deep value investment strategies, SG Value Partners focuses exclusively on analysis and investments in undervalued securities and therefore focuses on traditional investment objectives (increase returns). In particular, no explicit sustainability investment strategy/policy is pursued (no sustainability reference within the meaning of FINMA's Supervisory Communication 05/2021).
Nevertheless, sustainability is one of several important aspects in the thought and investment process of SG Value Partners and as such has always been part of our investment philosophy. The consideration of sustainability factors in the context of fundamental investment analysis is part of our ethical and moral principles as responsible citizens. These aspects may also be relevant in the context of risk management (sustainability risks).
Specifically, SG Value Partners may selectively exclude companies with controversial activities from the investment universe in accordance with international norms and standards.
SG Value Partners does not evaluate any adverse effects of investment decisions on sustainability factors. Such concrete effects are currently not measurable in the investment strategies used.
SG Value Partners provides information on the sustainability factors considered upon request, but does not actively market the managed strategies as sustainable.
The structure and level of total remuneration is aligned with SG Value Partners’ risk policies and designed so as to enhance financial and non-financial risk awareness.
The company’s salary and remuneration procedures are appropriate in accordance with the principle of proportionality, its size, and its risk profile, and that motivates their employees to promote the long-term economic success and value creation of the entrusted assets. It particularly refrains from providing any financial incentive for conduct that might damage the investors’ interests or taking inappropriate financial or non-financial risks in order to achieve short-term success.
Variable remuneration is funded through the long-term economic performance of the firm. Variable remuneration shall be granted according to sustainable criteria. The remuneration system of the Compliance function’s employees is designed in such a way that there is no incentive to create conflict of interest.
According to its business policy, SG Value Partners does not collect retrocessions from third parties. In the event a retrocession is received from a third party, it will be forwarded immediately. The transfer is made either to a client of SG Value Partners or to another financial intermediary.
However, SG Value Partners may grant retrocessions or discounts to third parties in connection with the distribution or placement of the investment funds managed by SG Value Partners. These payments are taken in full from the fees due to SG Value Partners and do not result in any additional burden on the fund’s assets.
The services of SG Value Partners do not include advice concerning the tax situation of the customer or legal advice. The tax situation of the customer in his country of domicile is not the responsibility of SG Value Partners but of the customer. SG Value Partners recommends that clients seek appropriate advice from a local tax specialist or legal advisor.
The Client is responsible for ensuring that the current and future assets held with the Bank and the income, capital gains and the like generated thereby are properly declared to the competent tax authorities and will continue to be properly declared in the future. The client is responsible for all tax liabilities related to the assets managed by the asset manager.

SG Value Partners is obliged to work towards maintaining or restoring contact between the client and the asset manager.

Please inform SG Value Partners if the address used by the client is no longer correct. Please inform SG Value Partners if you are going away for a longer period of time and if your mail should be delivered to a third person. One way to avoid a lack of news is to inform a trusted person about your customer relationship.
