Arnie, Inc. (“Arnie”) is a Registered Investment Advisor (“RIA”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Advisory services are only offered to clients or prospective clients where Arnie, Inc. and its representatives are properly licensed or exempt from licensure. Investment advisory services will be provided only to individuals who become Arnie clients pursuant to a written investment advisory agreement. No advice may be rendered by Arnie, Inc. unless a client service agreement is in place. Articles, commentaries, investment plans and other content provided by Arnie on or through the Website are for illustrative, informational, or educational purposes only and do not constitute investment, legal or tax advice, or an offer to buy, sell or hold any security. Forecasts or projections of investment outcomes in investment plans are estimates only, based upon numerous assumptions about future capital markets returns and economic factors. As estimates, they are imprecise and hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results, and are not guarantees of future results. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. There is no guarantee that any particular asset allocation or mix of funds will meet your investment objectives or provide you with a given level of income. Investing entails risk including the possible loss of principal and there is no assurance that the investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Past performance is not a guarantee of future returns, and returns in any period may be far above or below those of a previous period. No representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided.
Any presentation of back-tested performance is hypothetical, was compiled after the end of the period advertised, and does not represent decisions made by Arnie, Inc. during the period described. For any reference to an index on the Website, it should be noted that an index is a hypothetical portfolio of securities representing a particular market or a segment of it used as an indicator of the change in the securities market. Indexes are unmanaged, do not incur fees and expenses and cannot be invested in directly.
