Read these terms and conditions (“Terms”) carefully before using the services described herein. By utilizing the website located at www.algonquinadvisors.com (“Website”), you acknowledge that you have read these Terms and that you agree to be bound by them. If you do not agree to all of the Terms of this agreement, you are not an authorized user of these services and you should not use the Website.


Algonquin Advisors LLC (“Algonquin”) is an SEC registered investment adviser located in Greenwich, Connecticut. Algonquin and its representatives are in compliance with the current filing requirements imposed upon SEC registered investment advisers by those states in which Algonquin maintains clients. Algonquin may only transact business in those states in which it is registered, or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements. Algonquin’s Website is limited to the dissemination of general information pertaining to its advisory services, together with access to additional investment-related information, publications, and links. Accordingly, the publication of Algonquin’s Website on the Internet should not be construed by any consumer and/or prospective client as Algonquin’s solicitation to effect, or attempt to effect transactions in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation, over the Internet. Any subsequent, direct communication by Algonquin with a prospective client shall be conducted by a representative that is either registered or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration in the state where the prospective client resides. For information pertaining to the registration status of Algonquin, please contact the SEC or the state securities regulators for those states in which Algonquin maintains a notice filing. A copy of Algonquin’s current written disclosure statement discussing Algonquin’s business operations, services, and fees is available from Algonquin upon written request. Algonquin does not make any representations or warranties as to the accuracy, timeliness, suitability, completeness, or relevance of any information prepared by any unaffiliated third party, whether linked to Algonquin’s Website or incorporated herein, and takes no responsibility therefor. All such information is provided solely for convenience purposes only and all users thereof should be guided accordingly.


Nothing contained on the Website constitutes tax, legal, insurance or investment advice. Neither the information, nor any opinion, contained on the Website constitutes a solicitation or offer by Algonquin to buy or sell any securities, futures, options or other financial instruments, nor shall any such security be offered or sold to any person in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, purchase, or sale would be unlawful under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. Decisions based on information contained on the Website are your sole responsibility. The materials should not be regarded by you as a substitute for the exercise of your own judgment. You should consider whether an investment strategy or the purchase or sale of any product is appropriate for you in light of your particular investment needs, objectives and financial circumstances.

 

Please remember that 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 Algonquin), will be profitable or equal any historical performance level(s).


Certain portions of Algonquin’s Website (i.e. newsletters, articles, commentaries, etc.) may contain a discussion of, and/or provide access to, Algonquin (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, such discussion may no longer be reflective of current position(s) and/or recommendation(s). Moreover, no client or prospective client should assume that any such discussion serves as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized advice from Algonquin, or from any other investment professional. Algonquin is neither an attorney nor an accountant, and no portion of the Website content should be interpreted as legal, accounting or tax advice.


Rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if Algonquin is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should it be construed as a current or past endorsement of Algonquin by any of its clients. Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser. Rankings are generally limited to participating advisers.


To the extent that any client or prospective client utilizes any economic calculator or similar interactive device contained within or linked to Algonquin’s Website, the client and/or prospective client acknowledges and understands that the information resulting from the use of any such calculator/device, is not, and should not be construed, in any manner whatsoever, as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized individual advice from Algonquin, or from any other investment professional.

Securities are not bank deposits and are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency of the United States, nor are they obligations of, nor insured or guaranteed by, Algonquin. Securities including alternative investments, limited partnerships and futures involve investment risks, including the possible loss of value. Your eligibility for particular products or services is subject to final Algonquin determination and acceptance. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future returns. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up, and you may not recover the amount of your original investment. In the case of some investments, you should be aware that there is no recognized market for them and that it may therefore be difficult for you to deal them or to obtain information about their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed.


The Website may contain statements that constitute "forward looking statements". While these forward looking statements may represent Algonquin’s judgment and future expectations, a number of risks, uncertainties and other important factors could cause actual developments and results to differ materially from Algonquin’s expectations. Algonquin is under no obligation to (and expressly disclaims any such obligation to) update or alter its forward looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. In addition to statements which are forward-looking by reason of context, the words 'may, will, should, expects, plans, intends, anticipates, believes, estimates, predicts, potential, or continue' and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements.
