Legal and Disclaimers

Our personal disclaimer (with handy regular-guy wording)

Use of this site requires that you read our personal disclaimer as well as the official disclaimer below.  This personal disclaimer does not in any way limit the more detailed official disclaimer below.

This site represents what Robert Smith Financial thinks is important. These independent views and opinions expressed are those of Robert Smith Financial and are not necessarily the opinions of HollisWealth.

Advice is only provided during one-on-one conversations between us and clients.  What makes sense for one client may not make sense for another client.  As such, advice can’t possibly be provided on this website so please do not consider anything you read or see on this site as advice.

For greater clarity, do not buy or sell any security or make any financial decisions based on what you read on this site.  If you do, you could easily suffer financially.

Nothing on this site is a solicitation or recommendation to do anything!   This includes investment advice, legal advice (which I can’t possibly provide), tax/accounting advice.

Talk to us in person, get second opinions from other licensed and qualified advisors, do your own research, and ask LOTS of questions before making any financial decisions.

The purpose of this site is simply to better share with our clients what we are reading, thinking, and doing to more effectively manage and enhance your life savings.

At most, this site should be entertaining, informative, and generate questions and discussions.  That is it.  Anything beyond these simple goals is not intended, expressly denied, and should not be construed as such.
