Important Risk Disclosure
In addition to standard industry disclosures contained in the Client Agreement, you should be aware that Financial Market Investment/Trading is one of the riskiest forms of investment available, and is only suitable for sophisticated individuals and institutions.
An account with Capital Street Intermarkets Limited permits you to invest and transact in foreign exchange, commodities, equities, debt/bonds/debentures and other complex securities investments and markets (as defined in detail in clause 2.1 of the client agreement) on a highly leveraged basis (up to approximately 100 times your account equity or as otherwise decided by Capital Street on a market/investment specific basis) if you choose to utilize the leverage facility offered.
An initial deposit of $1,000 may enable the account holder to take a maximum position with $100,000 notional market value. The funds in an account choosing to operate at levels of maximum leverage can be completely lost, if the position(s) held in the account has a one percent swing in value. Given the possibility of losing an entire investment, participation at any level or in any capacity in these Financial Markets should only be conducted with risk capital funds that, if lost, will not significantly affect your personal or institution’s financial well being.
If you have pursued only conservative forms of investment in the past, you may wish to study Financial Market Investments further before continuing an investment of this nature. You must realise that you could sustain a total loss of all funds you deposit into your account with us as initial investment/deposit/account equity, as well as substantial amounts of additional capital(in case of additional deposits), when investing/transacting in Financial Markets, should the market go against your investment.
You must also realise that investments/transactions propagated as limited risk investments do not mean that these are investments where the loss is limited to a certain absolute or percentage value. The limited risk in these investments means that you could lose the entire investment made in that particular market/asset without further liability to other investments being simultaneously held in your account or further liability above the total equity in your account if you hold only that singular investment in your account.
If you wish to continue with your investment, you acknowledge that the funds you have committed are purely risk capital and loss of your investment will not jeopardize your style of living nor will it detract from your future retirement program.
Additionally, you fully understand the nature and risks of Financial Market Investments, and your obligations to others will not be neglected should you suffer investment losses.
