Advertising Message for promotional purpose - This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or a investment solicitation. Please read carefully the characteristics of the financial instruments on offer and its associated risks, which are also present in the information provided by Directa ("Preliminary information", Section C - Information on financial instruments). ETFs, ETCs and ETNs (ETPs) and Certificates are complex financial instruments, with a significant risk of loss of the invested capital and whose price may include implicit costs. Directa therefore recommends to read the product offer documentation and the KID/KIID document, which describes the operating methods, costs and risks to which you are exposed by making the investment. The term "leverage" is used to describe investment strategies aimed at multiplying potential profits and losses. Leveraged investments may be made with the aim of obtaining possible higher returns, however leverage not only amplifies gains but also any losses. The investor is also exposed to the risk of early termination of the investment and of total loss of the invested capital or even more than it. The issuer pays Directa a fee upon execution, classifiable as an inducement pursuant to the Consob Intermediaries Regulation: for this reason, a conflict of interest may occur.
