2. About Our F​ees and Your Risks and Possibilities of Loss


(1) About Our Fees

CBRE handles broad range of financial instruments and offers variety of services, and our fees shall be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the type of the financial instruments, the scope of our services, period of our engagement etc.. For this reason, we are unable to indicate in advance the amounts or the calculation methods of our fees.

(2) About Your Risks and Possibilities of Loss

The financial instruments handled by CBRE may result in a loss of principal or may cause you to incur a loss exceeding the principal due to fluctuations in price, rent or occupancy rate of the underlying real estate asset, fluctuations in interest rate, catastrophe and large-scale natural disaster, changes in relevant legislations, increased tax burden due to change of tax system etc..

Furthermore, there is no guarantee of principal and no guarantee of earnings yield for the financial instruments handled by us, and thus the client shall bear the risk of the value of the financial instruments the client has invested falling below the investment principal.


3. About “Exp​iration Date” under the Professional Investor System


(1) Our “Expiration Date”

For CBRE’s clients, the “Expiration Date”, as defined under Article 34-3, paragraph 2, item 2 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, shall be as follows:

September 30

(2) About “Expiration Date”

Under the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, clients are classified either as “Professional Investors” or “General Investors” under the “Professional Investors System”. Certain “General Investors” may change their status to “Professional Investors”. Those “Professional Investors” who were originally “General Investors” automatically go back to their original “General Investors” status as of the Expiration Date, provided, however, that they may remain as “Professional Investors” by going through the necessary renewal procedure. Moreover, those “General Investors” who changed their status to “Professional Investors” may go back to their original “General Investors” status at any time by going through the necessary return procedure.

With respect to financial instruments transaction with clients classified as “Professional Investors”, we would be exempt from certain statutory regulations which would otherwise be imposed on us, and thus such clients may not enjoy full protection. Therefore, we would ask the client to give careful consideration regarding its change of status to “Professional Investors”.
