Validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer forms part of our internet presence on our websites www.agents-for-impact.com and www.agents-for-impact.de, from where you were referred to this page. Where individual sections or specific wordings in this disclaimer are no longer, not entirely or not at all in compliance with the legal requirements, this will not affect the content or validity of the other sections hereof.
1. Right to change content at any time
We expressly reserve the right to modify, supplement, amend or delete parts of the web pages of www.agents-for-impact.com or www.agents-for-impact.de or the entire content or to cease the publication, either temporarily or permanently, without prior notice.

2. References and links
a. In its judgment dated 12 May 1998 (case no: 312 O 85/98 – Haftung für Hyperlinks (liability for hyperlinks)), the Hamburg Regional Court ruled that, by using hyperlinks (= direct or indirect links to third-party websites), the operator of a website may also be liable for the content of the linked external website. According to this ruling, this can only be prevented by the operator of the website expressly disassociating itself from the content of the linked external website. We hereby expressly disassociate ourselves from any external websites to which we may have set links. We hereby expressly disclaim any liability for any such linked external websites. It is solely the operator of a linked external website or the author of any such content who will be liable for any damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided on such external websites. We do not assume any liability in this regard.
b. In its decision dated 30 June 1997 (case no. 260 DS 857/96), the Berlin-Tiergarten District Court ruled that no criminal liability exists if the external website to which the link setter or the accused refers was legitimate at the time of setting the hyperlink and was only later, without the knowledge of the link setter or the accused, modified in a way that is relevant under criminal law. According to this decision, the link setter or the accused is under no obligation to continuously check the external websites to which he or she makes reference via hyperlinks. However, the moment we become aware of any breaches of the law on external websites to which we make reference via hyperlinks, we will remove any such hyperlinks from our website without undue delay. We hereby expressly state that no illegal content was apparent to us on the linked websites at the time the relevant links were set. We have no control over the current or future design, content or authorship of any linked external websites. We therefore expressly disassociate ourselves from any and all content of the linked external websites that were modified after setting the link.
c. The above statements apply to any and all hyperlinks and references set as part of our present web pages on the sites www.agents-for-impact.com and www.agents-for-impact.de as well as any third-party entries in the guest books, discussion forums, link lists, mailing lists and all other forms of databases via which external websites can be accessed.

5. Information regarding the remuneration system under section 16 of the Financial Institutions Remuneration Regulation
The German Financial Institutions Remuneration Regulation (Institutsvergütungsverordnung, “InstitutsVergV”), as amended on 16 December 2013, contains supervisory minimum requirements for the remuneration systems of financial services companies.
Pursuant to section 25a (1) no. 6 of the German Banking Act (Kreditwesengesetz, “KWG”) in conjunction with the InstitutsVergV, Agents for Impact GmbH & Co.KG is required to maintain an appropriate remuneration system. For this purpose, Agents for Impact GmbH & Co.KG is required to publish the information specified in section 16 (2) InstitutsVergV.
In the absence of the requirements of section 17 InstitutsVergV, Agents for Impact GmbH & Co.KG is not deemed to be a material institution (bedeutendes Institut). Accordingly, the special requirements of the third part of the InstitutsVergV do not apply.
General information on the remuneration system
The gross annual fixed salary of staff is divided into 12 monthly salaries. Depending on the business results as well as individual performance parameters, variable remuneration components may also be paid.
The remuneration is supplemented by the social security contributions that are customary in the industry as well as the use of a company car by the company management.
Structure of the remuneration system
In addition to the base salary, staff may also, albeit to a lesser degree, receive variable remuneration under a target-oriented remuneration system.
The base salary is in line with the market and depends on the actual function carried out. Its purpose is to retain staff for the long term.
The remuneration system is designed in such a way as to avoid any significant dependence on variable remuneration components and the resulting incentives to take on disproportionately high risks.
Against this background, the share of variable remuneration is always limited to 20 percent of a staff member’s total remuneration (for members of the company management, this percentage is 50 percent). Under certain circumstances, a reduction of the variable remuneration component to zero is also possible.
Staff’s variable remuneration components are paid on an annual basis upon expiry of the business year as a one-off payment.
External advisers are remunerated, in part, on a progressive percentage scale, depending on the value of the assets under management, and in part on agreed time-based rates.
Quantitative information pursuant to section 16 (2) sentence 3 InstitutsVergV
With regard to the total amount of remuneration paid in the form of wages and salaries, we refer the reader to the mandatory announcement in the German Federal Gazette (www.bundesanzeiger.de).
