WARRANTIES & DISCLAIMERS

There are no warranties implied.

Global Strategic Investment Solutions (“GSIS”) is a registered investment adviser located in Scottsdale, AZ.  GSIS may only transact business in those states in which it is registered, or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements.

GSIS’s web site 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 GSIS’s web site on the Internet should not be construed by any consumer and/or prospective client as GSIS’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 GSIS 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 GSIS, please contact the state securities regulators for those states in which GSIS maintains a registration filing. A copy of GSIS’s current written disclosure statement discussing GSIS’s business operations, services, and fees is available at the SEC’s investment adviser public information website – www.adviserinfo.sec.gov or from GSIS upon written request. GSIS 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 GSIS’s web site 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.

This website and information are provided for guidance and information purposes only.  Investments involve risk and unless otherwise stated, are not guaranteed.  Be sure to first consult with a qualified financial adviser and/or tax professional before implementing any strategy.  This website and information are not intended to provide investment, tax, or legal advice.

Nothing in these materials should be construed as offering or disseminating specific investment, tax, or legal advice to any individual without the benefit of direct and specific consultation with an investment advisor representative authorized to offer Global Strategic Investment Solution’s services.  Information contained herein shall not constitute an offer or solicitation of any services.

All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including the possible loss of principal. There are specific risks that apply to investment strategies. These risks should be reviewed carefully before taking any investment action. No system or financial planning strategy can guarantee future results. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results, and the potential for profit is accompanied by the potential of loss.  Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that future performance or any specific investment strategy or product will be profitable.

Asset allocation, which is driven by complex mathematical models, should not be confused with the much simpler concept of diversification.  While both diversification and asset allocation may help reduce volatility and risk, they do not guarantee future performance.  Diversification and asset allocation do not guarantee a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.  They are methods used to help manage risk.

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) and mutual funds are sold only by prospectus. They are subject to administrative fees which are explained in detail in each fund prospectus. These fees are incurred in addition to any fees paid for portfolio management or charged by program sponsors.   Investing in ETFs and mutual funds is subject to risk and potential loss of principal. ETFs incur trading and commission costs similar to stocks and frequent trading can negate the lower cost structure of an ETF. There is no assurance or certainty that any investment or strategy will be successful in meeting its objectives.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks and charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other important information about the fund. Contact your advisor or issuing company to obtain a prospectus which should be read carefully before investing or sending money. You should also review your investment advisory agreement or contact your advisor for details on these fees.

The return and principal value of bonds fluctuate with changes in market conditions.  If bonds are not held to maturity, they may be worth more or less than the original value.  Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value if interest rates rise.  The yield on high yield bond funds is due, in part, to the volatility and risk of the high yield securities market.  High yield bonds are sometimes referred to as “junk bonds.”  Income from tax free bonds may be subject to local, state, and/or alternative minimum tax.

Additional risks are associated with international investing such as currency fluctuations, political and economic instability and differences in accounting standards.  Emerging markets have heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume.

Small cap stocks may be subject to a higher degree of market risk than large cap stocks, or more established companies’ securities.  Furthermore, the illiquidity of the small cap market may adversely affect the value of an investment so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Non-traditional asset classes as well as non-traditional strategies are subject to risks including stock market risk, credit and interest rate risk, floating rate risk, volatility in commodity prices, liquidity and currency risk.  Some strategies may have direct or indirect exposure to derivatives, which may be more volatile and less liquid than traditional securities.
