Conditions of Use

Welcome to our website! The Financial Consulate Inc. and its associates provide the information available to you on this site subject to the following conditions. If you visit within this website, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully.

The Financial Consulate, Inc.  (“The Consulate”) is an SEC registered investment adviser with locations in Hunt Valley, Maryland and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  THE CONSULATE and its representatives are in compliance with the current filing requirements imposed upon SEC registered investment advisers by those states in which THE CONSULATE maintains clients.  THE CONSULATE may only transact business in those states in which it is registered, or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements.  THE CONSULATE’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 THE CONSULATE’s web site on the Internet should not be construed by any consumer and/or prospective client as THE CONSULATE’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 THE CONSULATE 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 THE CONSULATE, please contact the SEC or the state securities regulators for those states in which THE CONSULATE maintains a notice filing.  A copy of THE CONSULATE’s current written disclosure statement discussing THE CONSULATE’s business operations, services, and fees is available from THE CONSULATE upon written request as well as posted on the disclosures page of the site.  THE CONSULATE 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 THE CONSULATE 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.

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 THE CONSULATE), will be profitable, equal any historical performance level(s), be suitable for your portfolio or individual situation, or prove successful.  Past performance may not be indicative of future results.

Please remember that it remains your responsibility to advise THE CONSULATE, in writing, if there are any changes in your personal/financial situation or investment objectives for the purpose of reviewing/evaluating/revising our previous recommendations and/or services, or if you would like to impose, add, or to modify any reasonable restrictions to our investment advisory services. A copy of our current written disclosure statement discussing our advisory services and fees is available upon request. The scope of the services to be provided depends upon the needs of the client and the terms of the engagement.

Certain portions of THE CONSULATE’s web site (i.e. newsletters, articles, podcasts, videos, commentaries, etc.) may contain a discussion of, and/or provide access to, THE CONSULATE (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 THE CONSULATE, or from any other investment professional.  THE CONSULATE is neither a law firm, nor an accounting firm, and no portion of the web site content or its services should be interpreted as legal, accounting or tax advice.

To the extent that any client or prospective client utilizes any economic calculator or similar interactive device contained within or linked to THE CONSULATE’s web site, 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 THE CONSULATE, or from any other investment professional.

Each client and prospective client agrees, as a condition precedent to his/her/its access to THE CONSULATE’s web site, to release and hold harmless THE CONSULATE, its officers, directors, owners, employees and agents from any and all adverse consequences resulting from any of his/her/its actions and/or omissions which are independent of his/her/its receipt of personalized individual advice from THE CONSULATE.

Past performance may not be indicative of 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, investment strategy, or product (including the investments and/or investment strategies recommended or undertaken by THE CONSULATE Partners, LLC), or any non-investment related content, made reference to directly or indirectly in this communication will be profitable, equal any corresponding indicated historical performance level(s), be suitable for your portfolio or individual situation, or prove successful. Moreover, you should not assume that any discussion or information contained in this communication serves as the receipt of, or as a substitute for, personalized investment advice from THE CONSULATE.  To the extent that a reader has any questions regarding the applicability of any specific issue discussed above to his/her individual situation, he/she is encouraged to consult with the professional advisor of his/her choosing.  THE CONSULATE is not a law firm and no portion of the communication content should be construed as legal advice.  A copy of the THE CONSULATE current written disclosure statement discussing our advisory services and fees is available upon request and in the Disclosures section of our website. If you are a THE CONSULATE client, please remember to contact THE CONSULATE, in writing, if there are any changes in your personal/financial situation or investment objectives for the purpose of reviewing/evaluating/revising our previous recommendations and/or services.
