Legal notes


1. No investment advice

The content of this website is intended solely to provide general information about the products and services of HANSAINVEST. This information cannot and is not intended to replace individual advice by a qualified expert. The information relating to the special funds managed by HANSAINVEST does not constitute investment advice or a recommendation to buy.

2. Acquisition of units in investment funds

Investment fund units are always purchased on the basis of the latest sales documents for the investment fund in question at the time of the acquisition, which comprise the key investor information, the sales prospectus, the General and Special Terms and Conditions of Investment included in the sales prospectus, the last statement of accounts and any subsequent half-year report.

The sales documents are available on this website in electronic form under “Service/download centre”. A printed version can also be requested free of charge by calling + 49 40 300 57-62 96 and is available at HANSAINVEST Hanseatische Investment-GmbH, Hamburg, and at the paying agent.


3. Acquisition of units in funds of hedge funds

Funds of hedge funds are subject to increased volatility on account of their composition, i.e. the unit prices may also experience significant upwards or downwards fluctuation within a short period of time. For more details please see the risk information in the sales prospectus. 

The Federal Minister of Finance warns that this investment fund invests in hedge funds that are not subject to any statutory leverage or risk limitations.

Interested investors should therefore contact our customer service centre.

4. Restrictions on sale

The information contained on this website is intended solely for persons who may lawfully receive such information under applicable laws. The offer of investment units is restricted to persons who may lawfully receive such an offer. In particular it is not directed at US citizens and persons resident or ordinarily resident in the USA, its territories, possessions or other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the USA. In case of doubt please contact our Customer Service Centre for further information.

‎5. Information on calculating the performance of investment funds

Unless stated otherwise, the information on performance found on this website was determined using the BVI method. The distribution is reinvested and the costs of the investment such as subscription fees, redemption expenses, custody fees and account management fees are not taken into account. The performance of a fund calculated in this way does not usually correspond to the actual investment result. However, it makes it possible to compare the management performance of different funds with similar investment focus without this being distorted by the fee structure.

6. General risk information

Past performance is not a guarantee of the future performance of an investment.

The value of units and their income may rise or fall. Exchange rate changes can also have both a positive and a negative impact on the value of an investment. Accordingly, you may receive back less than you originally invested when redeeming your units.

Detailed risk information on HANSAINVEST’s individual investment funds can be found in the detailed sales prospectus. Investors are expressly advised to read the risk information before making an investment decision.

Conditions of use

By using this website, you agree to the following provisions.

1. Exclusion of liability

The information on this website has been carefully compiled and is regularly updated. As it may be subject to change at short notice, however, HANSAINVEST cannot accept any liability for the topicality, accuracy, completeness, or quality of the information provided.

Furthermore, HANSAINVEST accepts no liability for material or immaterial losses not resulting in damage to life or limb resulting from the use or failure to use the information provided or the use of incorrect and incomplete information, providing that this is not attributable to intent or gross negligence on the part of HANSAINVEST.

2. Right of modification

HANSAINVEST expressly reserves the right to modify, expand, or delete the content of this website, either in part or in whole, or to temporarily or permanently cease publication without separate announcement.

3. References and links

Third-party websites may link to this website using hyperlinks, including without the knowledge of HANSAINVEST. This website may also link to third-party websites using hyperlinks. In all of the above cases, HANSAINVEST accepts no liability for the content and information provided on such third-party websites.

4. Copyright and trademarks

The content and structure of this website are protected by copyright. Any reproduction of information or data, and in particular the use of texts, text passages, or images, requires the prior approval of HANSAINVEST or the copyright holder.

5. Use of the portfolio calculator

Our website features a portfolio calculator that you can use to make individual calculations for the performance of a fictitious investment. The results of the portfolio calculator are based on performance calculated using the BVI method and so this does not account for all costs of the investment (e.g. custody and account management fees) or for tax factors. The actual results of an investment would therefore differ from the result of the non-binding sample calculation. There is the possibility of calculation errors. As described above, HANSAINVEST does not bear liability. A fictitious investment’s past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. 

6. Applicable law, place of jurisdiction

Use of this website is subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. Hamburg is agreed as the place of jurisdiction with respect to merchants, legal entities under public law, special funds under public law and persons having no place of general jurisdiction in Germany.
