While Galena endeavours to ensure that the information on the Website is correct, Galena does not warrant the accuracy and completeness of the material on the Website. Galena may make changes to the material on the Website, or to the products described in it, at any time without notice. The material on the Website may be out of date, and Galena makes no commitment to update such material.


In particular, but without prejudice to the generality of the above clause, commentary and other materials posted on the Website are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed.


The material on the Website is provided "as is", without any conditions, warranties or other terms of any kind. Accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted by law, Galena provides you with the Website on the basis that Galena excludes all representations, warranties, conditions and other terms (including, without limitation, the conditions implied by law of satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and the use of reasonable care and skill) which, but for these Terms of Use, might have effect in relation to the Website.

Neither the FINMA nor any other regulatory body has approved or disapproved, passed on or endorsed, the merits of the securities issued by the Funds.

Past performance is not a guide to the future. Prospective investors should be aware that the value of their investments and any income produced by them can fall as well as rise. Investment in the Funds carries the risk of potential loss of capital and investors may not get back the value of their original investment. Where an investment involves a foreign currency, it may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. Opportunities for redemption and transferability of interests in alternative investments are restricted so investors may not have access to capital when it is needed. There is no secondary market for interests in many alternative investments and none may develop. Alternative investments are designed only for sophisticated investors who are able to bear the economic risk of losing all of their investment. Alternative investments: (i) often engage in leveraging and other speculative investment practices that may increase the risk of investment loss; (ii) can be highly illiquid; (iii) are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors; (iv) may involve complex tax structures and delays in distributing important tax information; (v) are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds; and (vi) often charge high fees.


Nothing on the Website constitutes investment, legal, tax or other advice. Prospective investors should evaluate any tax or legal consequences that may arise in their jurisdiction or otherwise impact on them. If you believe you need assistance in evaluating or understanding any tax, risk or investments issues, you should consult your professional adviser.
