Pricing Disclaimer

Valuation of Assets

Valuation of Assets is established on the basis of last known prices, from the usual banking information sources.  When no price or value from usual banking information sources is available, estimated values may be used.

Thus, securities priced daily are valued at the previous day's closing price, provided such information is available.

As regards securities priced at other frequencies, they are valued at the last known price, in accordance with prices and values from usual banking information sources.

For prices that are more than five days old, the date of the price is specified below it.

For securities where no price or value from usual banking information sources is available, valuations are provided for information purposes only.

Special case for hedge funds:  The amount of the net asset value (NAV) is known by SGPBS at variable timescales depending on the funds in question.  The actual NAV calculation date is mentioned below the value given.  The values indicated do not constitute a commitment or obligation of any kind on the part of SGPBS to buy or sell shares or units in those funds at that price.

Special case for forward exchanges: Gains and losses correspond to the difference between the agreed forward exchange rate and the current forward exchange rate, estimated in line with the yield curve.  Exchange rates are updated at least once per day.

In any case, valuations are provided for information purposes only and are in no way binding for SGPBS.
