What is investment advisory service? On the basis of the risk appetite and investment goals, we will identify the Client’s Risk Profile and the relevant Investment Strategy.
Please remember that you can choose a safer Strategy than the one resulting from the Risk Profile. The Bureau’s Team is made up of people boasting extensive experience in investment on domestic and international capital markets, including specialists with licenses of an Investment Advisor, Securities Broker or the renowned CFA certificate.

Execution of the transaction (which is no longer part of the investment advisory service) will be subject to the standard transaction fees provided for investment products.
Service is available for Citigold and Citigold Private Client Customers, holding the minimum amount of PLN 50,000 (in words: fifty thousand Polish zlotys) within the investment products covered by the Customer’s portfolio, except for structured notes, or declared monies allocated for the Service (or an equivalent of that amount at the average NBP exchange rate from the day preceding issuance of the Investment Recommendation).
Bank Handlowy w Warszawie S.A. (“Bank”) provides Investment Advisory service solely to customers who have entered into the agreement for this service, and solely in the scope of the products covered by the agreement (units of open-ended mutual funds, investment certificates not allowed for trading in an organized market, structured notes and Polish treasury bonds). A failure to act in compliance with the Investment Recommendation may take the customer a few steps back from the Recommended Tactical Portfolio. Acting in compliance with the Investment Recommendation does not guarantee increasing, maintaining or reducing the value of the Customer Portfolio. A high percentage of assets not covered by the investment advisory service may prevent us from bringing the customer to attain the Recommended Tactical Portfolio.
Investment products and unit-linked insurance products (“Products”) are not a deposit, obligation nor are guaranteed by Bank Handlowy w Warszawie S.A. or by any of Citigroup subsidiaries or affiliates, except for the investment products issued or guaranteed by Bank Handlowy w Warszawie S.A. or a subsidiary or affiliate of Citigroup. For investment products, capital protection and/or an interest guarantee scheme, if applicable, is the responsibility of the issuer of a given investment product. Products offered by the Bank are not guaranteed by the State Treasury, the Bank Guarantee Fund (except for the receivables from deposit certificates and dual currency investments subject to obligatory monetary fund guarantee scheme according to the Act on Banking Guarantee Fund, deposit guarantee scheme and obligatory restructuring dated June 10, 2016) nor by any other government institution. Amounts receivable from an insurance agreement are secured by the Insurance Guarantee Fund in the scope referred to in the Act on obligatory insurance, Insurance Guarantee Fund and Polish Motor insurers’ Bureau dated May 22, 2003. This means that if the Insurer becomes insolvent in the cases as defined under the above Act, the Insurance Guarantee Fund shall cover in part the claims of beneficiaries under the life insurance contracts, in the amount of 50% of the claims but not more than up to the Polish zloty equivalent of EUR 30 000.00.
Products bear investment risk, including the possibility of losing invested capital. Upon taking a decision to purchase or sell an investment product, customer should take into account the existing risk which stems from taking an investment decision, and in particular the possibility of a change in prices of financial instruments covered by that decision contrary to the customer's expectations and, consequently, a possible failure of attaining the profit that was assumed by the customer. The past performance of investment products, investment portfolios and the levels of stock market indices and foreign exchange rates as well as insurance capital funds, which affect returns on investment, are no guarantee of their future profits.
When making investment decisions, one should take into account the investment portfolio diversification and consider not only the assets in the products available through Bank Handlowy w Warszawie S.A. but also the assets in other financial institutions. Asset concentration understood as a high share of the investment product, instruments of the same type or of the same issuer or the same asset class in the investment portfolio may generate greater risk than the diversified approach to these elements, which is important for the matching of the portfolio to individual investment objectives and risk acceptance. It is recommended to discuss with us the general structure of the investment portfolio and possible diversification options.
