8. Statements of performance; Morningstar ratingTM

 

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). Profit distributions are reinvested taking into account tax credits and without foreign withholding tax.

 

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.

 

8.2 Morningstar rating TM

 

© 2011 Morningstar Inc. All rights reserved.

 

The information contained herein

 

• is protected by copyright for Morningstar and/or its content providers;

• must not be copied or disseminated; and

• is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up to date.

 

Neither MEAG nor Morningstar Inc. nor their content providers are responsible for any loss or damage that may arise as a result of using this information.

 

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).
