  1. Warning about Risks

Forward Looking Statements

6.1 www.partnersforsustainability.ch and www.sustainability.fund may contain statements that constitute “forward looking statements”.

Investments in foreign currencies are subject in addition to exchange rate fluctuations. Investments involving high volatility can be subject to high price fluctuations. These price fluctuations may equal or even exceed the value of the invested amount. The preservation of the invested capital cannot therefore be guaranteed
