EQI PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

EQI’s products and services will be formally launched in 2019 and are depended on our bank securing and/or maintaining correspondent bank facilities and/or commercially viable insurance. This means that EQI’s products and services and other features of the platform may not be available in certain markets, or at all. This could require restructuring of that ecosystem and/or its unavailability in all or certain respects.

INVESTMENTS

The value of investments (and any income received from them) can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount you invested. For some investments, this can also happen as a result of exchange rate fluctuations as shares and funds may have an exposure to overseas markets. Due to the difference between the buying and selling prices of shares, which will particularly impact on the value of your investment in the short term, you should regard investment companies as medium to long-term investments. Nationals of certain countries or territories may be subject to exchange controls and should seek independent advice before investing. 

DIGITAL CURRENCY

The risk of loss in trading or holding Digital Currency can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding Digital Currency is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.

TAX

Whilst banking offshore may have potential tax benefits for you. Tax rules differ from country to country. If you are unsure about your personal tax obligations you should seek professional tax advice. It is your responsibility to disclose your income to tax authorities.
