Pareto offers investment advice relating to such part of the client’s portfolio as the client would like to expose by using Pareto.

In general, Pareto Securities will not recommend that any capital that is necessary for meeting ongoing subsistence requirements be invested in equities. Nor are equities necessarily suitable for meeting all intended capital uses. Future need for liquidity Capital requirement the next five years that must be taken into consideration when considering which investments that are suitable for you as a Client No – I do not have a known need for liquidity the next five years that must be taken into consideration Yes – please specify Time horizon of the investments The time horizon of the client is of relevance to the assessment as to whether equities are suitable, in view of the risk tolerance of the client, as well as to the assessment as to whether products with limited liquidity are suitable. The client is requested to indicate for how long the client intends to be invested in financial instruments (time horizon), and not for how long the client would like to be invested in each individual instrument. The time horizon is of relevance to Pareto Securities’ assessment as to what market risk exposure would entail for the client. A short time horizon increases the risk associated with investments in certain types of financial instruments, like for example equities. This implies that equities may be unsuitable as an investment if the client either requires (for example for liquidity reasons) or would prefer a very short investment horizon. Time horizon less than 1 month Time horizon 1 month to 1 year Time horizon more than 1 year Pareto reserves the right not to provide investment services if Pareto finds that the investment objective stated by the Client is incompatible with the investment objectives that the investment products offered by the enterprise are suited to meeting.

The Client or the person(s) trading on behalf of the Client has/have previously made use of the following investment services Transmission/execution of orders Investment advice Active management Purchase/subscription of/for financial instruments in connection with initial or secondary public offerings Pareto provides so-called “execution only” services as far as web trading in non-complex instruments is concerned, which services involve direct assistance with the execution of orders at the initiative of, and as decided by, the Client. Consequently, the enterprise is not required to assess whether the Client has the necessary knowledge and experience to understand the risk associated with the relevant investment product. Consequently, Pareto is under no obligation to warn the Client against investments in respect of which the Client does not have sufficient knowledge and experience to understand the risk associated therewith. The Client therefore does not benefit from the same investor protection as do clients who receive investment advice.

The Client shall disclose its assets in order to enable Pareto to assess which financial instruments are suitable for the Client. Clients must also disclose their liabilities in order to enable Pareto to assess the ability of such clients to absorb losses.
