Important legal information

New General Terms and Conditions of Business

In the following paragraphs, you will find the General Terms and Conditions (version 2018) for the Austrian branch offices of UBS Europe SE, as well as a comparison of the modified or altered clauses with their former versions. An English version of the General Terms and Conditions and of the comparison of modified or altered clause and of the Execution Policy is not available, since the contractual language of the Austrian branch offices of UBS Europe SE is German.

Persons who access information on websites of the Austrian branch offices of UBS Europe SE ("UBS Website") agree to the following terms and conditions. Special agreements, if any, regarding individual services or products of the Austrian branch offices of UBS Europe SE shall apply in addition to these terms; in the case of contradictions, however, the provisions of the special agreement in question shall prevail.

Performance

The future performance of investments cannot be predicted on the basis of the indicated price development, that is to say, the value of your assets may increase or decrease. In view of such price fluctuations, UBS cannot guarantee the conservation (much less an increase) in value of the invested capital.
