Risk Disclosure and Important Note

Investment involves risks. The prices of securities fluctuate, sometimes dramatically. The price of a security may move up or down and may become valueless. It is likely that losses will be incurred rather than profits made as a result of buying and selling securities. Transactions through securities accounts may involve derivatives or high risk investment vehicles. Before making any investment decisions, a person should carefully consider whether the investment is suitable in light of his/her investment experience, investment objectives, and risk tolerance level. The bank does not provide securities advisory service. Any person considering an investment should seek independent advice on the investment suitability when considered necessary.
