To the extent that any User accesses any economic calculator or similar interactive device contained within or linked to the Website, the User acknowledges and understands that the information resulting from the use of any such calculator/device, is not, and should not be construed, as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized individual advice from Strategent, or from any other investment professional.
Past performance does not guarantee future results. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including those undertaken or recommended by Strategent), will be profitable or equal any historical performance level. All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Investment strategies such as asset allocation, diversification, and rebalancing do not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses. There is no guarantee that a portfolio employing these or any other strategy will outperform a portfolio that does not engage in such strategies. Any target referenced on this Website is not a prediction or projection of actual investment results and there can be no assurance that any target will be achieved. Changes in investment strategies, contributions or withdrawals may materially alter the performance of an individual’s portfolio. Economic factors, market conditions, and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio and there are no assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark. Projections, forecasts and estimates referenced on the Website are not purely historical in nature and are therefore necessarily speculative and subject to material variation.
Any index performance data appearing or referenced (directly or indirectly) on the Website has been compiled by the respective copyright holders, trademark holders, or publication/distribution right owners of each index. Historical performance results for investment indexes and/or categories are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent actual portfolio performance. The indexes and/or categories generally do not reflect the deduction of transaction and/or custodial charges, or the deduction of an investment-management fee, which would decrease historical performance results. Investors cannot invest directly in an index. Strategent makes no warranty, express or implied, for any decision taken by any party in reliance upon such index information.
Certain portions of the Website (e.g., newsletters, articles, videos, audio files, commentaries, indexes, etc.) may contain a discussion of, and/or provide access to Strategent’s (and those of other investment and non-investment professionals) positions and/or recommendations as of a specific prior date. Due to various factors, including changing market conditions, these discussions may no longer be reflective of current positions or recommendations. While information presented is believed to be factual and up-to-date, Strategent does not guarantee its accuracy and it should not be regarded as a complete analysis of the subjects discussed. All expressions of opinion reflect the judgment of the authors as of the date of publication and are subject to change. No User should assume that the publication of any of this material serves as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized advice from Strategent or from any other investment professional. Users should not use any Website content as the sole basis for any investment, financial planning, tax, legal or other decisions. Rather, a professional adviser should be consulted and/or independent due diligence should be conducted before implementing any of the options referenced in the Website content. Strategent is neither a law firm nor an accounting firm. The tax and estate planning information provided is general in nature. It is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal or tax advice. Users, clients, and prospective clients should consult an attorney or tax professional regarding their specific legal or tax situation.
Except as prohibited by law, and as a condition precedent to accessing this Website, each User agrees to release and hold harmless Strategent, its members, managers, officers, directors, owners, employees, agents, and affiliates from any and all adverse consequences resulting from any actions or omissions related to this Website that are independent of receiving personalized individual advice from Strategent. The preceding sentence shall not limit or waive any applicable User rights under federal or state law, including securities laws and fiduciary obligations that cannot be limited or waived.
