The information in the App should not be construed as any endorsement, recommendation or sponsorship of any company or security. There are inherent risks in relying on, using or retrieving any information found on the App, and deVere urges you to make sure you understand these risks before any execution. You agree that deVere is not liable for any action you take or decision you make on the App.

  • Performance Information

    The Client warrants, represents and agrees that he/she is solely responsible for any execution (buying/selling) being made through the App.  Past performance may not be indicative of future results; therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific execution (buy/sell), will be profitable or equal to the client investment portfolio. Different types of execution involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for a client’s investment portfolio. deVere will not be responsible of the outcome of any execution made by the client through the App.

News stories reflect only the author’s opinion and not necessarily that of the deVere.

    If any part of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these Terms of Use shall continue in effect.
