MIFID INVESTMENT PROFILES

For the purpose of this web-site, Institutional Investor indicates the MiFID category of Eligible Counterparties (ECP). This category receives the lowest level of protection under MiFID and it refers to an entity to which a credit institution or an investment firm provides the services of reception and transmission of orders on behalf of clients and/or execution of such orders and/or dealing on own account:

If such clients are provided with investment advice, they will be treated as Professional clients instead.

It is the responsibility to the subject that enters in the area of the web-site denominated “Institutional Investors” to verify its own quality and the belonging to such category.

For the purpose of this web-site, Professional Investor refers to the entities that are not classified as an Eligible counterparty according to MiFID but who possesses the experience, knowledge and expertise to make its own investment decisions and properly assess the risks.

In order to be considered as a Professional Investor, the client or prospective client shall be:

(i) an entity authorized or regulated to operate in the financial markets, such as:

(a) Credit institutions;
(b) Investment Firms;
(c) Other authorized or regulated financial institutions;

(iv) Other institutional investors whose main activity is to invest in financial instruments, including entities dedicated to the securitization of assets or other financial transactions. The entities mentioned above are considered to be professionals.

This category receives a lower level of protection than Retail clients

It is the responsibility to the subject that enters in the area of the web-site denominated “Professional Investors” to verify its own quality and the belonging to such category.

For the purpose of this web-site, Private Investor indicates the MiFID category of Retail clients. All the clients or prospective clients that do not fall under the classification of Professional Investors or Institutional Investors have to be considered as Private Investors according to this web-site.

This is the classification that offers the most protection and imposes the most requirements in terms of communication, disclosure and transparency.
