Banca IMI also recommends that users read and examine the specific terms and conditions governing access to and use of those third party sites.

Prices and rates published on this site have, unless otherwise expressly indicated, an indicative value only and are not contractually binding. They may not reflect the actual or realisable values or prices, the prices at which transactions involving those financial instruments may be concluded, Banca IMI's internal evaluations of the respective financial instruments and may also differ significantly from prices and rates published on other sites or supplied by other intermediaries. The prices and rates expressed may be derived from exchange rates between the Euro and non-Euro currencies. Where such prices are deduced from regulated markets, multilateral trading facilities or systematic internalisers, these are given in deferred and not real time, unless otherwise expressly indicated. Past performance of financial instruments, where indicated, is no guarantee of equal or similar future performance. Likewise, historical series of prices in relation to financial instruments, where stated, do not constitute any guarantee that the financial instruments can, before maturity, be traded or liquidated at those prices. Furthermore, unless otherwise specified, all data, information, opinions and evaluations contained on this site refer - and are made exclusively with reference - to the date specified on this site or, where not specified, to the date of access and there is no guarantee that the opinions, forecasts or estimates contained on this site will turn out to be fully or partly correct on any subsequent date. Any data, information, opinions and evaluations contained on this site may also be modified or updated by Banca IMI, without any obligation for the latter to give prior notice or to communicate such modifications or updates to those who have previously accessed this site.

The financial instruments to which data and information contained on this site refer may be characterised by a very high degree of complexity and risk and investment in those financial instruments may result in the loss of the entire capital invested. Data and information contained on this site do not constitute and cannot be construed as constituting an evaluation of the risk associated with any investment concerning such financial instruments and, more generally, should not be used as the basis for any contract or commitment of any kind and should not be relied upon with respect to the conclusion of any contract or commitment of any kind in relation to such financial instruments.

 

Anyone interested in receiving further information about the financial instruments described on this site is expressly requested to contact their financial, legal and tax advisor. Anyone interesting in considering possible investment decisions or carrying out transactions involving the financial instruments to which data and information contained on this site refer is expressly requested by Banca IMI, prior to making the investment decision, directly or through their financial, accounting, legal and/or tax advisors, to carry out all the analyses and checks deemed expedient and to obtain all data and information deemed necessary in order to make an appropriate assessment of the level of risk associated with individual financial instruments and the suitability of those financial instruments according to their investment objectives, risk propensity, experience with investments in financial instruments and/or financial situation, or those of their clients (in the case of transactions on behalf of third parties) and to only enter into a transaction after fully understanding the nature of the financial instrument and the degree of risk exposure that it entails.

Any evaluations or opinions of Banca IMI contained on this site, even if based on established financial principles and on reasonable estimates about future market conditions, may differ significantly from the evaluations or opinions of other intermediaries.

Buying, selling or trading of the financial instruments to which data and information contained on this site refer may be subject to restrictions in certain States or for residents of certain States. Therefore, potential investors are expressly requested to make enquiries about the existence of such restrictions and observe them.

Given the nature of the activities performed, Banca IMI, as well as other companies of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, and their directors, managers, officers or employees may from time to time have their own specific interest in the financial instruments to which data and information contained on this site refer or to their underlying financial assets or to their issuers. In particular, and by way of example only, Banca IMI, as well as other companies of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, may from time to time hold "long" or "short" positions in financial instruments or in the underlying financial assets, may act as intermediaries of financial instruments, issuers of financial instruments and market makers with respect to those financial instruments, the underlying financial assets or their individual components on regulated markets, multilateral trading facilities, whether owned, co-owned or of third parties, in systematic internalisers, whether owned or of third parties; may from time to time provide investment and/or banking and/or financial and/or incidental services and activities of any kind to issuers of financial instruments or to related persons, and consequently in the light of the circumstances set out above Banca IMI or other companies of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group may have positions that represent a conflict of interests with the position assumed by any investor in those financial instruments.
