ACCESS TO THE WEBSITE

The website www.covea-finance.com is intended to provide general information about Covéa Finance and to offer access to specific information on the products offered outside France by Covéa Finance.

Access to this website is intended exclusively for professional clients within the meaning of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2004/39/EC ("MiFID"). The contents of the website are not intended for private clients.

A professional client is one who "possesses the experience, knowledge and expertise to make its own investment decisions and properly assess the risks that it incurs", as opposed to a non-professional client.

The website is also accessible to the following entities:

  • Supervisory authorities
  • Statutory auditors
  • Investment service providers within the meaning of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive 2004/39/EC ("MiFID")
  • Local agents/transfer agents

It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the laws to which they are subject allow them to consult this website and to determine their own tax status and profile. Access to certain information on the website is limited or restricted on the basis of the user profile selected.

Covéa Finance cannot accept any liability whatsoever for any use of this website in breach of these access conditions.

The information available on this website does not in any way constitute legal, tax or investment advice and cannot be construed as canvassing or as an invitation to subscribe.

Specific information on the terms and conditions of subscription for clients outside France:

The attention of clients is drawn to the fact that, in the event of a subscription by a client located outside France, orders will be centralised by a transfer agent. Order processing times will take into account both local constraints and the periods necessary to transmit orders to the institution responsible for order centralisation identified in the regulatory documents (KIID/Prospectus) of the mutual fund.

Please refer to the terms and conditions of subscriptions/redemptions in the key investor information document and in the fund prospectus and consult the information on the website in the section entitled “how to subscribe”.

Important notice :

In general terms, orders submitted to promoters other than the institution responsible for order centralisation identified in the regulatory documents of the mutual fund must allow for the fact that such promoters may apply their own centralisation cut-off time, which may be earlier than the cut-off time stipulated by the documents, in order to take into account the time required to transmit orders to the centralising entity of the mutual fund.
