Customer Identification Program
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities, and to verify your identity, federal law may require Independent Investment Bankers (IIB) to obtain your name, date of birth, address and a government-issued identification number before opening your account. If you are acting on behalf of a corporate entity, we may be required to obtain your name and title, and the corporation’s address and government-issued identification number. In certain circumstances, IIB may obtain and verify this information with respect to any person(s) authorized to effect transactions in an account. Your account may be restricted and/or closed if IIB cannot verify this information. IIB will not be responsible for any losses or damages (including but not limited to lost opportunities) resulting from any failure to provide this information, or from any restriction placed upon, or closing of, your account.
Conflicts of Interest
IIB and its affiliates may from time to time engage in activities that are in conflict with their securities customers. The employees of IIB, its contract consultants, and its affiliates are bound to the customer’s best interests and are required to notify IIB of any possible or potential conflict of interest which may result from their other activities, and may commence such other activities only after the prior, written approval of IIB, which may not be unreasonably withheld.
IMPORTANT: All investing is risky, and no investor should decide to commit funds without first consulting with a competent professional adviser. Some or all invested funds can be lost. The past performance of any investment, investment strategy or investment style is not indicative of future performance. Future results may vary, and are not guaranteed. The value of investments and their income may increase or decrease, and a loss of principal – including all principal – may occur.
IIB is primarily a private placement banker and broker. A private placement is the sale of registered or unregistered securities to a limited number of qualified private investors, including institutional investors, accredited individuals, and entities that meet certain investor eligibility requirements. Securities purchased through private placements typically fall into the category of alternative assets – investments that often have a low correlation to public markets and offer essential diversification to portfolios dominated by traditional stocks and bonds.
However, private placements generally are highly illiquid, and are not subject to public disclosure obligations. Investors should consult professional advisers, perform deep due diligence, and engage in careful deliberation before investing.
