* The net capital gains (after deduction of fees) shown here as an example are non-binding and provided for illustrative purposes only. The actual return will depend on the price performance of the target fund selected by the asset manager. The unit price of the target fund will perform in line with the underlying investment. These are subject to fluctuations (price, interest or currency fluctuations) in the capital markets and their effect on your chosen investment strategy. Higher price gains are mainly relevant for investment strategies that invest primarily in riskier asset classes such as shares. Therefore, the actual returns generated by your investment may look differently than those shown here.

** The number of bonus years depends on the chosen investment horizon and will be granted for up to 1% of the average annual portfolio value over the last years of the investment period.
