Not Advice


The Sites give you access to research and opinions about financial markets and financial news, but please be aware that any information on this site should not be considered to be financial product advice. The Sites are published by a media company that provides general information only, which is not intended as investment or financial advice and should not be relied upon as such.


The Content on The Sites provides general information only. It is not intended as investment advice and must not be relied upon as such. You should obtain professional investment advice tailored to your specific circumstances prior to making any investment decisions. Some Content on The Sites provides general information about certain financial products including without limitation securities and managed fund products.


The Sites do not provide, and must not be construed as providing, recommendations in relation to any financial products. Prior to any action or investment, you should seek independent professional advice. Nothing contained in this website is intended to be, nor shall it be construed as, advice or recommendation. Any investment or other decisions made by you must be based solely on your own evaluation of the targeted subject for investment, and your financial circumstances and investment objectives, and we will not be held liable for any such investments and decisions.


It is distinctly understood and accepted that the shares referred to on The Sites, publications and/or services have not been recommended by us.

Unless otherwise expressly stated, the material on this website is factual information where there is a reasonable likelihood of doubt. It is not intended to imply any recommendation or opinion about a financial product.


If any material on this website provided by third parties contains financial product advice, the advice has been prepared without taking into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. You should therefore consider the appropriateness of the advice in light of your own objectives, financial situation or needs, before acting on the advice. If the advice relates to the acquisition, or possible acquisition, of a particular financial product, you should obtain a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) (if required) relating to the product and consider the PDS before making any decision about whether to acquire the product.

The Sites are published by a media company which employs financial journalists to report financial news. Journalists perform the required research and collect the information that is, ultimately, each day, published on this website and in our news periodicals. As is obvious, the process by which the information is collected and delivered to you is a purely journalistic one and, therefore, the comments, opinions and recommendations reported on this website are not the opinions of The Sites or any of its journalists or other employees.

The information on The Sites, including any data from third party data providers and/or its associated analysis and commentary, has not been prepared by taking into account your business needs, investment objectives, financial situation, business positioning, your current situation or personal needs.


The Sites nor any of the published material, including data solicited from third party data providers and/or their associated commentary or analysis, have taken into account individual business or personal needs, and does not constitute nor is it intended to constitute business, investment, financial, bidding, property, mortgage or legal advice and should not be relied upon by any person as a substitute for professional advice.
