All content is for informational purposes only. Nothing contained in the Site constitutes investment, legal, accounting or tax advice and you should not consider any such information on the Site to be the same. Neither the information nor any opinion contained in the Site constitutes a solicitation or offer by CogentBlue or any fund or other entity managed directly or indirectly by CogentBlue to buy or sell any securities, futures, options or other financial instruments.

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS AND INVESTMENT STYLE IS NEITHER INDICATIVE OF NOR A GUARANTEE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE. There is no guarantee that an investment strategy will achieve its objectives. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amounts invested. Investment in any of these strategies is speculative, involves a high degree of risk and is designed only for sophisticated investors who are able to bear the loss of their investment in a security. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

Privacy and Security Policy
Federal law requires financial institutions to inform clients of their policies relating to the protection of personal financial information. The following statement explains how CogentBlue handles the information that we receive about our clients. CogentBlue is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of non-public personal customer information. Personal information is any data that identifies clients or their accounts.
CogentBlue may collect personal information through submission of account documentation and contact information on forms completed by the client, or client’s authorized representative. Such information could include the client’s name, e-mail and postal address, phone number, Social Security number, assets, income, financial needs and goals, account balances and transactions, including those with unaffiliated third parties. We use this information only to process your requests and transactions and to provide you with financial advice. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those CogentBlue employees who need to know that information to provide services to you.
CogentBlue uses the following measures to protect the privacy of clients. All personal information in our computers is protected from unauthorized access by a secure firewall and database architecture. In instances where personal information is exchanged via the internet, electronic and procedural methods to safeguard this exchange are used.
It is the policy of the Firm to ensure so called “consumer report information” (such as personal information about a client, e.g., Social Security number) is protected, maintained and disposed of in ways that ensure such information is safeguarded from unauthorized uses or disclosures. CogentBlue will take reasonable measures to dispose of personal information so that it cannot be read or reconstructed for unauthorized use. CogentBlue will determine the appropriate method of disposal on an as needed basis.
CogentBlue may have relationships with non-affiliated third parties that require us to share customer information in order for the third party to carry out its services for us.
Processing and Servicing Transactions
CogentBlue may share information when it is necessary to effect, administer, or enforce a transaction for our clients or if a client initiates a request for us to share information with an outside party. All requests by clients must be received in writing from the client.
Sharing as Permitted or Required by Law
CogentBlue may disclose information to non-affiliated third parties as allowed by law. For example, this may include a disclosure in connection with a subpoena or similar legal process, a fraud investigation, recording of deeds of trust and mortgages in public records, an audit or examination, or the sale of an account to another financial institution.
