Reichmuth Hochalpin is an investment fund with special risk under Swiss law which, in addition to traditional investments, also conducts a comprehensive range of alternative investments (hedge funds, forward transactions, etc.) and which may pursue alternative investment techniques and strategies (short sales, extensive use of derivatives, etc.) whose risks are not comparable to those of securities funds. In particular, the leverage effect of investments may have a factor of up to 2X.
Persons who invest in the Fund must be prepared and able to tolerate a loss of capital invested, including a total loss, in exceptional circumstances. However, the Fund Management Company and the Asset Manager will endeavor to reduce the risks inherent in the investment policies through targeted diversification of investments, strategies for the limitation of risks, and continuous control of risk parameters.
