Legal and risk information
An investment in funds is associated with risk. Historical returns are not a guarantee of future returns. The money invested in funds may increase or decrease in value and there is no guarantee that you will be repaid all of your deposited capital. Historical returns and current index values are no guarantee of future outcomes. Carnegie Fonder cannot guarantee your chosen funds will not decrease in value.
International investments, particularly those on new markets, are normally associated with a higher level of risk (as well as greater possibilities of returns) than investments in Swedish securities. These risks include both political and economic uncertainty in other countries as well as currency fluctuations. These risks are particularly high on new markets since these countries may have relatively unstable governments and immature markets and economies. For additional information a complete information sheet and simplified prospectus can be downloaded from the presentation page for each fund.
The information given on the Application Form, signed by the client, and in the latest Information Sheet and Fund Statutes applies to fund investments with Carnegie Fonder. The client must be aware of the contents of these documents.

A complaint is where a client has expressed concrete dissatisfaction with an individual matter related to a financial service or product. Complaints should be submitted in writing to the complaints officer. Guidance in conjunction with any complaints is offered by the Konsumenternas Bank- och finansbyrå and the Swedish Consumers Insurance Bureau (Konsumenternas Försäkringsbyrå) and via local authority consumer guidance. If a complaint is rejected the client may have the dispute reviewed by consulting the Swedish National Board for Consumer Complaints (Allmänna reklamationsnämnden, ARN) or in the courts. However the ARN will not deal with matters that require verbal presentation of evidence.
