In this respect, reference should be made exclusively to the Base Prospectus prepared by the issuer in order to find complete and comprehensive information on the issuer itself and on the characteristics of the Certificates. Certificates are complex instruments whose market value depends on the performance of the underlying asset and could become even lower than the nominal value. The issuer’s payment of any periodic amounts due and the settlement amount is subject to credit risk and bail-in risk. From this it follows that this type of investment has risk profiles that make it unsuitable for all investors. It is therefore appropriate that the potential investor in Certificates, before proceeding with the investment, should gather all the information necessary for the correct assessment of risks and consequent suitability and appropriateness to their own profile, if necessary by contacting their broker and at the same time providing the latter with all the information it may require regarding: knowledge and experience in investment matters, financial situation, investment objectives including risk tolerance. This is intended to allow the intermediary to assess the suitability and appropriateness of the investment to the individual investor’s profile. Investment decisions in the Certificates shall be the sole responsibility of the investor and the consequences of any losses resulting from the investment in the Certificates shall be borne solely by the investor. The Certificates may only be subscribed, purchased or sold through intermediaries authorised to provide investment services. These intermediaries will be solely responsible for receiving and executing orders. The offer and sale are restricted in some states or for residents of some states. The Certificates are issued by Banca Akros, and therefore transactions carried out by Banca Akros on these instruments, as well as by other companies belonging to the Banco BPM Banking Group, constitute transactions in conflict of interest. Before signing up, read the basic prospectus and the KID (Key Information Document) carefully, which are published on the website The Base Prospectus is also available at the issuer’s registered office on viale Eginardo, 29 – Milan.
