Appropriateness questionnaire

Feel confident about your choice of complex investment products

  • Take a short quiz to assess the level of your knowledge about and experience with different investment products.
  • The purpose of this questionnaire is to determine whether or not an investment product is appropriate for you.
  • This questionnaire is mandatory before you purchase any complex investment products.
  • When buying a complex investment product for the first time, the bank has to assess its appropriateness for you.
  • The purpose of this questionnaire is to determine whether you have the knowledge and competence to understand the risks associated with complex investment products you want to buy.

This questionnaire will determine whether or not an investment in a product is appropriate for you.

If the assessment result for a product group is “not appropriate”, we’ll consider that you may put yourself in a position where the risk assumed by you does not match your knowledge and experience, related to investing in such products.

  • Choose a product group related to your planned investment and answer the questions.
  • We will perform the appropriateness assessment based on the information you have provided in this questionnaire.
  • A filled-out questionnaire is valid for 5 (five) years, or until you fill out the questionnaire again, whichever occurs first.

You can fill out the questionnaire for a selected product group once per day.
