3 Available information
3.1 Correctness, completeness and current validity
The information on the MEAG website is carefully researched and updated regularly, however mistakes cannot be entirely ruled out. The facts and data upon which the information is based may be subject to change. Furthermore, MEAG is reliant on information and data from third parties, so it cannot guarantee or accept any liability for the correctness, completeness or current validity of any information on the MEAG website. This also applies to information on websites linked to the MEAG website or connected to it in any other way.
3.2 Legal and tax aspect
Where applicable, the information is based on MEAG's assessment of the current legal and/or tax situation, the correctness of which it cannot guarantee. Other information is merely a generalised observation without including any individually relevant aspects. Hence, the website www.meag.com contains no legal or tax-related advice. The information it contains is no substitute for individualised advisory services as provided by a legal or tax consultant, and we explicitly recommend such services to the user.
3.3 Fund reports, Market View
The Market View and reports on selected MEAG mutual funds to be found on the MEAG website reflect MEAG's current opinion. The information they contain comes from sources that MEAG considers to be reliable, but it is not necessarily exhaustive, nor can we guarantee its correctness. Forecasts and expectations expressed are subject to risks and uncertainties, so the actual performances can vary significantly from the expectations and assumptions. MEAG reserves the right to change its assessments and is not obliged to update such information.
The information contained in the market and fund assessments is not intended as an offer or invitation to buy or sell financial instruments, or as investment advice, an investment recommendation, financial analysis or rating; it is purely for informational purposes.
4. Linked websites
The MEAG website may contain references or links to other websites. MEAG inspects other websites before setting the initial link, but does not review linked websites continuously. It has no influence on the further structure or on the content of the linked website and does not adopt it as its own. It can therefore not accept any liability for the content of such websites.

MEAG reserves the right to restrict the availability of the MEAG website to any extent at any time or to permanently remove the MEAG website from the Internet.

7. Sales prospects for the purchase of fund units

The sales prospectus contains extensive risk indications. These documents are available free of charge from:

8. Statements of performance, Ratings and Indices
8.1 Statements of performance
Unless otherwise noted, statements made on past performance are based on calculations made in accordance with the BVI method (BVI Bundesverband Investment und Asset Management e.V., "Gross Performance"). Accordingly, the investment is made at unit value and no further costs (e.g. issue surcharge or custodian fees) that reduce the performance are taken into account in this calculation method in addition to the costs already arising in the fund (e.g. management fee).
The net performance takes into account the issue surcharge payable by the investor when purchasing the units, and the costs arising at fund level. As the issue surcharge only applies in the first year, the difference between gross and net only arises in this year. The extent of the surcharge depends essentially on the type of fund and its investment focus. The exact amount of the issue surcharge for each investment fund or fund unit can be found in the sales prospectus or on the relevant page of the fund portrait. Custodian fees may also be charged to the investor, reducing the performance.
Statements made on past performance are not a reliable indication of future performance. The value of the fund units and their returns may rise or fall, and it is possible that the investor may not receive the full amount initially invested when redeeming units.

9. Calculation basis for offer calculator / fund calculator, model calculations
All model calculations made on the MEAG website are non-binding. The assumed per annum performances are estimated values and not a reliable indicator of future performance. The actual result is dependent on the development of capital markets and currencies and can therefore ultimately be better or worse than the prediction. Tax aspects are not taken into account in the model calculations.
In the case of fund payment plans it is to be taken into account that the amount of the payments has to be adjusted regularly to the market developments in order to achieve the goal set by the customer (capital retention / capital consumption).
