Moventum uses independent financial advisers (each an „IFA”) to fulfil its investment brokering services.
These Terms and Conditions are applicable to the entire legal relationship between you and Moventum. If with respect to certain special transactions or extraordinary services to be rendered to you by Moventum (e.g. portfolio management and Equity trading) the parties agree on special conditions, such conditions shall prevail.

As regards to investments in mutual funds you agree to obtain from your IFA current offering documents which fully describe each investment, including potential risks and costs, prior to purchasing an interest in any transferable securities, units of collective undertaking ("fund") and unit linked products.

Moventum is entitled to directly debit existing and future receivables from your account disbursements, fees, commissions, interests, duty or other charges, which are incurred for the management of your assets or for the execution of transactions at your direction or for your benefit. Moventum may set off fees and expenses against distributions on shares or any other payments to your account. They may also be covered by the sale of shares or fractional shares of investment funds (if any), as the case may be, by Moventum in a corresponding amount. You may only set off claims against those of Moventum, if your claims are undisputed or have been confirmed by a final court decision.

C. CONDITIONS FOR YOUR SECURITIES ACCOUNT
1. Management of the securities account
a) Purchase and sale orders ("Instructions")
Under these terms and conditions you can require Moventum to invest any amounts paid by you to Moventum in securities specified by you provided however these securities in the case of mutual funds are on Moventum’s approved list of mutual funds.
You acknowledge that Moventum reserves the right in its sole discretion, according to any applicable legal requirements and practices, to refuse or restrict your orders and that Moventum may re-assign your account to a different IFA or close your account by giving you written notice as set forth in article D.18. In such cases, Moventum will immediately inform you hereof.
b) Form of communication
Instructions can be communicated by telephone, fax, e-mail and post or by special courier. You appoint the IFA as representative (referred to as "attorney") for purposes of communicating instructions to Moventum. Moventum shall act upon instructions from your IFA as if these instructions were given by you, provided however that Moventum may, in its absolute discretion, if it considers this appropriate, ask for confirmation of the relevant instructions from you. Moventum is entitled to request a written confirmation of the order from you before carrying it out, if Moventum has objective reason to doubt the integrity of a telephone, oral, faxed or e-mailed instruction.
If, upon your request, Moventum executes oral instructions, it is explicitly agreed that the account statements of Moventum conclusively prove that the transactions mentioned thereon have been fulfilled in accordance with your oral instructions. The same principle shall apply for instructions transmitted to Moventum by telefax, e-mail or similar means of communication other than an original written document.
The Customer assumes all risks, particularly those arising from errors in communication or comprehension including errors as to the identity of the Customer, resulting from the use of such means of communication and relieves Moventum from any and all responsibility in this respect.
To avoid any duplication, all written confirmations of previous oral instructions must clearly refer to those oral instructions.
You specifically empower Moventum to tape record your telephone conversations with Moventum. The tape may be used in court or other legal proceedings with the same value in evidence as a written document.
2. Investment fund sales and purchases
If a purchase order is clear and not ambiguous, Moventum will execute the instruction under the conditions indicated. Execution of transactions is subject to the legal provisions and business conditions (practices) for securities trading applicable at the place of execution. The execution price of the concerned investment fund is determined on the day at which the order was executed.
To the extent that amounts paid in for the purchase of shares in an investment fund are below the issue price of any full share, Moventum reserves the right to credit to your account with a corresponding fraction of the share (calculated by up to four decimal digits) or to refuse these orders. Moventum will also abide by the minimum order amount specified by the individual mutual fund provider. Moventum will inform the IFA and you accordingly.
For sales orders, the market price as of the date at which such order is executed will be applied. If Moventum receives an order by the daily closing time for acceptance of orders, the order will be executed at the day of receipt. If the day of receipt is not a trading day in Luxembourg or if an order is received after the closing time for the acceptance of orders, the order will be executed on the next trading day.
Instructions pursuant to these terms and conditions may be given by you or any duly authorized attorney or representative (referred to as "attorney") such as, but not limited to, your independent financial adviser if, and to the extent, referred to on the account opening form or duly appointed by you in subsequent communication with
Moventum. If the appropriate authorization has been made and communicated to Moventum, Moventum is entitled to accept instructions by such attorney as if such instructions were yours. You accept full responsibility for your attorney's instructions.
Signatures and signature powers which are shown on the account opening document or which have been notified in writing to Moventum shall remain valid for all written instructions to operate the account with Moventum until receipt by Moventum of a written revocation regardless of any entry or modification in the registry of commerce or any other registry. In the limited number of cases where modifications in the commercial register have the legal effect that they are deemed publicly known, this clause shall have no effect. Moventum shall not be liable for the fraudulent use by a third party of your signature, whether such signature be authentic or forged. Should Moventum not identify the fraudulent use of the authentic or forged signature on documents, and effect transactions on the basis of such documents, it shall, except in cases of gross negligence in the verification of any such document, be released from its obligation to refund the assets deposited with Moventum which were disposed of by the fraudulent use of such documents. Moventum shall, in such circumstances, be considered as having made a valid payment, as if it had received proper instructions from you.
4. Distributions from investment funds / Dividend reinvestment
To the extent that investment funds grant any distributions, such distributions, will be treated in the same manner as amounts paid for the purchase of investment funds and will be either automatically reinvested in shares of the relevant fund on the day that Moventum receives the money from such distribution, provided that Moventum receives notification in due time to process the reinvestments, or paid to your account in cash. Such instructions will be given to Moventum at the time of the transaction and will remain in effect until Moventum receives your written instructions to alter such instructions.
5. Execution of orders as regards transactions in investment funds
a) Method of execution
According to any applicable legal requirements and practices, Moventum reserves the right to determine the method of execution of purchase orders, subscription orders, redemption orders, periodic investments, payment orders or transfer orders received from you or your duly authorized attorney unless you or your attorney have given specific directions with regard to the method of execution.

In addition, Moventum reserves the right not to execute a purchase order for investment funds with the proceeds of a sale of other securities until the entire proceeds of such sale have been received. In case of a securities transfer, Moventum reserves the right not to execute a sale order for investment funds until such investment funds have been delivered in their entirety.

If the contents of an order are such that Moventum typically entrusts a third party with its further execution, Moventum performs the order by passing it on to the third party in its own name. In such cases, the liability of Moventum shall be limited to the careful selection and inspection of the third party.

In order to fulfil your cooperation duties for the due settlement of business transactions you are required to inform Moventum without delay and in writing of any changes of your name, address and the termination or change of any power of representation communicated to Moventum. This information requirement applies regardless of the fact whether the power of representation is entered in a public register.

You will receive a confirmation for each purchase and sale transaction in securities executed. As regards to savings plans, Moventum will not issue any individual confirmation on amounts paid in on a regular basis. In this case you will at year-end receive a statement, if required, of all movements that have occurred during the calendar year. You will also receive account statements containing account value and cash and security transaction. Account statements will be issued on an annual basis.
To the extent your consent is given on the account opening form, Moventum may communicate your personal data contained in confirmation statements and account statements to your IFA, his/her assistant(s) or employee(s) as necessary either in written or electronic form to assist in the management of your account.
To the extent your consent is given on the account opening form and in the case your IFA is member of a Distribution Network (“Broker Pool”), Moventum may communicate your personal data contained in confirmation statements and account statements to your IFA Pool Manager and the employees of the Pool.
Reports of the execution of orders (confirmations) and statements of your accounts shall be conclusive and will be considered as accepted if not objected to in writing no later than four weeks following their receipt. If the objections are made in writing, it is sufficient to dispatch these within the period of four weeks. Failure to make objections in due time will be considered approval.

The rule is applicable for all transactions, in particular for cash wires and investment of assets, subscription and redemptions of securities.
Moventum is authorised to adjust factual errors that had been produced by Moventum without notice by simple rebooking. This is also applicable for duplicate orders that had been entered in error on the basis of the condictio indebiti principle.
If you have not received your annual statement by the end of the month following the close of the quarter, Moventum has to be informed without delay. This information requirement also applies in the absence of any other expected notifications (in particular confirmations on the execution of orders).
You may in whole or in part, dispose of your securities by way of written order. As regards to investment funds, a delivery may only be executed with respect to integral shares.

Documents in foreign languages have to be presented in English, French or German and certified to Moventum.
Moventum is not liable for execution of orders or instructions that had been forwarded by an authorised representative, until the information of the customer’s death or the incapability of acting had been forwarded in written to Moventum.
Any securities and assets on the account opened hereunder will be maintained in custody, on an omnibus basis, with Moventum's designated depositary bank. The name of the custodian and the place of deposit will be specified in the confirmation you will receive for each security transaction executed. Moventum will notify the customer of any replacement of the depositary bank.
You herewith pledge in favour of Moventum all securities in indirect possession now and in the future of Moventum, as well as all cash claims that you may have now or in the future in favour of Moventum on the balance from time to time on your account, in whatever currency, in order to secure any present and future payment obligations of yours vis-à- vis Moventum whether in principal, interest, fees or costs.
With respect to securities being deposited with Banque de Luxembourg S.A. you herewith explicitly grant power of attorney to Moventum to notify Banque de Luxembourg S.A. to hold the pledged securities for Moventum. With respect to assets being deposited with Banque de Luxembourg S.A. you herewith explicitly grant power of attorney to Moventum to notify Banque de Luxembourg S.A. that these assets have been pledged to Moventum. Insofar as claims pledged under this agreement are book claims you are obligated to enter the scope and date of the pledge in your books.
In addition, the pledged fungible securities will be designated in the books of Moventum as being pledged in its favour, without there being a need to mention such pledge on the account statements produced by Moventum and made available to you.
If securities or cash come into the power of disposal of Moventum under the reservation that they may only be used for a specified purpose (e.g. deposit of cash for payment of a bill of exchange), Moventum's pledge does not extend to these assets.
Moventum can assert the claim of dispatch or enhancement of securities until the realised value of all securities equals the realisable value of all securities claims in relation of the business relationship (cover limit).
If the realisable value of all securities and cash pledged in favour of Moventum exceeds the total amount of all claims arising from the business relationship (the "Cover Limit") on a more than temporary basis, Moventum shall, at your request, release securities or cash as it may choose in the amount exceeding the Cover Limit; when selecting the security items to be released, Moventum will take into account your legitimate concerns and the concerns of any third party having provided security for your obligations. To this extent, Moventum shall also execute orders for you relating to the assets pledged in favour of Moventum (e.g. sale of securities).
If you do not honour, by due date, any payment obligation towards Moventum and shall not have fully complied therewith 5 (five) banking business days from the dispatch of a written notice of summons to pay, Moventum shall be authorised to acquire, sell or auction the securities in accordance with applicable legal provisions and to offset your cash claims against secured claims of Moventum. The above notice may be made by mail or fax. The transmission report (in the case of faxes) shall constitute conclusive evidence of the dispatch of the notice.
If Moventum realises the security, it may choose between several assets. When selecting the assets in order to enforce the pledge, Moventum will take into account the legitimate concerns of you and any third party who may have provided security for the obligations of you. Moventum is not liable for disadvantages that may arise due to the use of the suffrage.
Moventum is authorised, at any time, to make a currency conversion for the purposes of the enforcement of the pledge and the satisfaction of its claims.
14. Refusal to Accept Orders
Moventum shall not be liable for refusing to obey any orders given by you with respect to an account(s), which has or have been the subject of attachment or sequestration in any legal proceeding against you, and Moventum shall be under no obligation to contest the validity of any such attachment or sequestration.

17. Your Termination rights
You may at any time, without notice, terminate the business relationship. If a term or a diverging termination provision has been agreed for a particular business relationship, such relationship may only be terminated without notice if there is reasonable cause therefore which makes it unacceptable to you to continue the business relationship, after having given due consideration to the legitimate concerns of Moventum.
18. Termination rights of Moventum
Upon observing an adequate notice period, Moventum may at any time terminate the business relationship. In determining the notice period, Moventum will take into account your legitimate concerns. The minimum termination notice for the keeping of current accounts and securities accounts is one month.
Termination of the business relationship without notice is permitted if there is reasonable cause which makes it unacceptable to Moventum to continue the business relationship, after having given due consideration to your
legitimate concerns. Such cause is given in particular if you have made incorrect statements as to your financial status, provided such statements were of significant importance for Moventum's decision concerning the granting of credit or other operations involving risks for Moventum, or if a substantial deterioration occurs or threatens to occur in your financial status, jeopardizing the discharge of obligations towards Moventum.
19. Deposit protection and investor compensation

If the order is not executed, Moventum shall advise the customer thereof without undue delay.
b) Orders with price limits/revocation
An order with price limits for the purchase or sale of securities shall be valid until the last trading day of the current month (month-end). An order received on the last trading day of a particular month shall, unless it is executed on the same day, be valid for the next month. Moventum shall advise the customer without undue delay of the period of validity of the customer's order.
An order cannot be revoked if Moventum has issued a binding order or if the transaction has already been executed.
5. Period of validity of orders for the purchase or sale of subscription rights
Orders without price limits for the purchase or sale of subscription rights shall be valid for the duration of trading in such subscription rights. Orders with price limits for the purchase or sale of subscription rights shall become void upon expiry of the penultimate day of trading in such subscription rights. The period of validity of orders for the purchase or sale of foreign subscription rights shall be determined according to the relevant foreign practices.
The handling of subscription rights belonging to the customer's securities holding the last day of trading in subscription rights shall be governed by below section (i.e. 2. a).
6. Suspension of the quotation
In the event that price fixing does not take place on an Luxembourg exchange at the instigation of the exchange management due to special circumstances in the sphere of the issuer (suspension of the quotation), all customer orders in the securities concerned for execution on this exchange shall become void; Moventum shall advise the customer thereof without undue delay. The execution of customer orders on foreign exchanges shall be governed in this respect by the practices of the foreign exchange.
7. Requirement of an adequate credit balance/securities holding
Moventum shall be required to execute orders for the purchase or sale of securities or to exercise subscription rights only to the extent that the customer's credit balance, a loan available for securities trading, or the customer's securities holding are adequate for execution. If Moventum does not execute all or part of the order, it shall advise the customer thereof without undue delay.
8. Liability of Moventum in commission transactions
Moventum shall be liable for the proper settlement of the execution transaction by its contracting party or the contracting party of the intermediate commission agent. If Moventum engages an intermediate commission agent, it shall be liable, until the conclusion of an execution transaction, only for the exercise of due care in the selection and instruction of such agent.
SETTLEMENT OF SECURITIES TRANSACTIONS
b) Option and conversion rights
Moventum shall notify the customer of the expiry of rights deriving from warrants or of conversion rights deriving from convertible bonds, requesting instructions, if the expiry date has made available to Moventum by the depository bank.
3. Communication of Information
If information concerning the customer's securities is made available to Moventum by the issuer or by its designated depository bank/intermediate depository, Moventum shall inform the customer thereof, to the extent that such information may materially affect the customer's legal position and notification of the customer is necessary in order to safeguard the customer's interests. Thus, Moventum shall in particular make known information on
- statutory compensation and exchange offers,
- voluntary purchase and exchange offers,
The customer need not to be notified if Moventum does not receive the information in time or the measures to be taken by the customers are financially unreasonable because the costs incurred are out of proportion to the customer's possible claims.
4. Exchange, removal and destruction of certificates
a) Exchange of certificates
Moventum may, without prior notice to the customer, comply with a call for surrender of securities certificates as soon as notified by the depositary bank, provided such surrender is manifestly in the customer's interests and does not involve an investment decision (e.g. following the merger of the issuer with another company or if the securities certificates are incorrect in content). The customer shall be advised thereof.
b) Removal and destruction following loss of securities status
If the securities certificates held in safe custody for the customer lose their status as securities following extinction of the rights they represent, they may be removed from the customer's securities account for destruction. Certificates held in safe custody in Luxembourg shall, where possible, be placed at the customer's disposal, if so requested. The customer shall be advised of the removal, possible delivery and possible destruction of the certificates. If the customer fails to give any instructions, Moventum may destroy the certificates after expiry of a period of two months after dispatch of such advice to the customer.
5. No exercise of voting rights for deposited shares at shareholders'meetings
If voting shares are held in safe custody with Moventum's designated depositary bank, the customer may empower a third party to exercise his voting right at the stockholders' meeting. Neither Moventum nor the designated depositary bank shall exercise the customer's voting rights at the shareholders' meeting.
a) Requests for Information by foreign stock corporations
Foreign shares which a customer entrusts to Moventum for safe custody at Moventum's designated depositary bank are subject to the laws of the country in which the stock corporation is domiciled. The rights and duties of the shareholders are therefore determined by these laws. Under such laws, the stock corporation is frequently entitled or even required to obtain information about its shareholders. If Moventum is required under such laws in an individual case to furnish information, disclosing the name of the customer, it shall advise the customer. The same may apply to other securities, particularly to convertible bonds and bonds with warrants.
These Special Conditions shall also apply if the customer arranges to have securities account credit balances transferred from another depository to Moventum's account with the designated depositary bank. A physical lodge of domestic or foreign securities with Moventum for safe custody is not possible.
1. Order transmission
Moventum shall forward orders for the purchase or sale of securities to its designated broker dealer, a fully licensed credit institution/financial services institution, having its registered seat within the European Union, which shall execute these orders. Any securities and other assets shall be deposited and administrated, on an omnibus account basis, at Moventum's designated depository bank, a fully licensed credit institution, having its registered seat within the European Union.
2. Treatment of subscription rights/warrants/ convertible bonds
a) Subscription rights
Moventum shall notify the customer of the granting of subscription rights as soon as the information is made available to Moventum by the depository bank. Provided Moventum has not received any other instructions from the customer by expiry of the penultimate day of trading in such subscription rights, it shall sell at best all domestic subscription rights belonging to the customer's securities holding; Moventum may arrange for foreign subscription rights to be realised at best in accordance with the practices applying abroad.
