This page sets forth the terms and conditions under which Sanlam Global Investment Solutions ("SGIS") makes this site available to you, as well as the terms and conditions governing your use of this site. By making use of this site, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions outlined below, as the same may be modified from time to time. Modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting on the site. If you do not accept these terms and conditions, please do not continue to use or access this site.
SGIS advises financial professionals of the availability of investment solutions for individual and institutional clients. The investment solutions are not offered or available for sale in the United States or to U.S. citizens or residents, or to citizens or residents of Bermuda. The availability of this site and information on the investment solutions and its underlying investments does not constitute an offer or solicitation to anyone.
Investments involve risk. Investments can go down as well as up, as a result of changes in the value of the underlying investments as well as currency fluctuations. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Values in the underlying investments are both U.S. dollar, Euro-denominated and GBP denominated.
Permitting you to download Forms or Brochures from this site does not constitute a solicitation to anyone. For further information or advice, you should consult an appropriate advisor in your country of residence, and forward any correspondence (application, documentation or general requests) directly to him/her.
The information provided on this site is made available with the understanding that SGIS is not providing professional advice of any type. If you have a question requiring professional advice, such as a question relating to law, tax or financial planning, please seek the advice of a qualified professional in the relevant field.

Substantial care has been taken to ensure that the information contained on this website is accurate at the date of publication. However, no representation or warranty, express or implied, is made to its correctness, accuracy or completeness.

Personal Data is personal and/or confidential information data that relates to you or your investment plan account. At times you may initiate communications with us or we may request certain information from you that does not relate to your investment account. We refer to these interchanges as "Communications." Any Communications or material you transmit to the site by electronic mail or otherwise, including data, questions, comments or suggestions, with the exception of Personal Data transmitted regarding you or your account, will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and will become the property of SGIS and/or its affiliates (this information is referred to herein as "Non-Confidential Communications").
Such Non-Confidential Communications may be used for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast and posting. Furthermore, SGIS retains the right to use ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any Non-Confidential Communications you send to the site for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing and marketing products using such information. You agree that you shall have no recourse against SGIS for any alleged or actual infringement or misappropriation of any proprietary right in your Non-Confidential Communications to us.
Should you send us your comments or questions via e-mail to any mail box provided on our sites, we will share your communications with our customer service representatives and those employees or agents most capable of addressing your questions and concerns. We will retain your communication until we have done our very best to provide you with a complete and satisfactory response and then we will either discard it or, in some cases, archive it.
Please note that, unless we expressly advise you otherwise, the e-mail facilities at our sites do not provide a means for completely secure and private communications between us. Like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, your e-mail may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider to be confidential.
You should also be aware that when you visit this website, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data", such as the number of visitors we receive, what pages are visited most often, and what browser and domain name you are using. This data helps us to continually improve the usefulness of the information we provide at this site.
Like most commercial websites, we may also use what is known as "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is a non-executable element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that site. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is then able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract personal information about you. Most browsers provide a simple procedure that will enable you to control whether you want to receive cookies by notifying you when a website is about to deposit a cookie file.
