A user who intends to access the “Funds” section must carefully read and expressly agree to this disclaimer, thus fulfilling the conditions of access set out above. Compliance with the conditions of access is of fundamental importance, because the collective investment schemes mentioned on the Site (“Funds” section) are authorized for distribution in Switzerland by Lapis, which holds an authorization as distributor exclusively for Switzerland.
Investors who do not satisfy the conditions of access may not access the “Funds” section of the Site. In particular, access to the “Funds” section is not permitted to persons domiciled in the USA or who are USA citizens, nor to any person who, by virtue of applicable foreign legislation, is not authorized to access / receive content relating to the above-mentioned investment funds.

Investors who fulfil the conditions of access to the Site must nevertheless check whether they are subject to any further constraints, obligations or restrictions under foreign (as opposed to Swiss) legislation relating to the offer, subscription, purchase, possession or sale of collective investment schemes, for example in relation to tax or inheritance law. Investors who are thinking of subscribing to a fund should carefully read the latest prospectus, offer document or other official information, and consult the fund’s most recent report.
