Not all services will be appropriate or necessary for all clients, and the potential value and benefit of SFG services will vary based upon a variety of factors, such as the client’s investment and financial circumstances, the client’s tax bracket, the nature and amount of the client’s employer and outside benefits, the client’s level of cooperation and communication, and the client’s overall objectives. The effectiveness and potential success of a financial plan depends on a variety of factors, including but not limited to the manner and timing of implementation, coordination with the client and the client’s other engaged professionals, and market conditions. Holistic or comprehensive financial planning indicates that financial planning will be informed by the material financial and investment circumstances of the client, as communicated by the client to SFG, but may not consider literally all aspects of a client’s financial affairs. SFG will rely upon the accuracy and completeness of the information provided by the client when providing advisory services. Statements regarding the clients served by SFG are not indicative of any client experience or level of satisfaction in working with SFG. Adherence to our fiduciary duty is not a guarantee of client satisfaction or any particular outcome. A financial adviser’s compensation structure should not be viewed as the sole determining factor in obtaining or retaining their services.
The receipt of personalized and tailored services, or the client’s access to financial or professional resources should not be construed as a guarantee of a particular outcome. All investing comes with risk, including risk of loss. Past performance does not guarantee future results. There can be no assurance that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including those undertaken or recommended by SFG), 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 reference to “private equity,” “private real estate,” or similar terminology on this Website does not relate to any specific private investment funds and should not be construed to refer to specific private investment funds. 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. SFG 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 SFG’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, SFG does not guarantee its accuracy and it should not be regarded as a complete analysis of the subjects discussed.
