That said, the research on our websites is produced to the best of the analysts’ knowledge.
While the price information on our websites tends to be sourced from various other providers (e.g. Reuters), we may occasionally be the original source. There may sometimes be a time lag between real-time prices and the quotations on our websites for securities or underlying instruments due to the regulations of the respective stock exchanges or the respective providers of financial information.

However, Erste Group Bank AG cannot be held liable for their accuracy. The performance and exemplary calculations as illustrated are not indicative of future development. Reference to past performance does not guarantee positive future development.
