Laying quality foundations

Private Client Risk Profiling

Our process of offering financial advice and wealth management requires an assessment of a client's current position and an understanding of what they want to achieve.

We take into account a client's attitude to risk and capacity for loss alongside their objectives. We discuss options with clients before proceeding with the development of recommendations, supported by our analysis to ensure that expectations are realistic.

Description of Services

FinaMetrica provides the Risk Profiling System to individuals wishing to have an assessment made of their financial risk tolerance. FinaMetrica statistically compares your risk tolerance answers with the answers of other people. The Risk Profiling System should not be used without confirming research from other sources, obtaining up-to-date information, and separate analysis by the user of his or her own particular financial situation, circumstances, attitudes, motivations and preferences. FinaMetrica does not guarantee or represent that FinaMetrica assesses your current state of mind or will predict your future state of mind or behavior.

Suspension or Termination

If any fee to be paid by you or a third party for the rights and licence(s) granted herein is past due, FinaMetrica may terminate these Terms and Conditions and the licence granted hereunder without prior notice. You agree that upon termination, FinaMetrica may, but are not required to, delete all information related to your account and may bar your access to your account and the Risk Profiling System.

FinaMetrica, in its sole and absolute discretion, may end these Terms and Conditions and your licence to use the Risk Profiling System at any time, without prior notice, if you fail to comply with any of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions or if you make any representation to us that is inaccurate.

Without limiting other remedies available to us at law, in equity or under these Terms and Conditions, we may, in our sole discretion, immediately issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate your access without notice and refuse to provide our services to you if:

1. you breach these Terms and Conditions;

2. we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us; or

We have no liability to you for any costs, losses or damages of any kind arising as a consequence of suspending or terminating your access to the Risk Profiling System.

Where any legislation implies any condition or warranty into your use of or any arrangement arising out of your access or use of the Risk Profiling System and that legislation prohibits exclusion of that condition or warranty, then that condition or warranty is included to the extent that such condition or warranty cannot be lawfully excluded.
