TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR USERS SEARCHING ADVISORFIND

myStockPlan.com Inc. offers the directory AdvisorFind from myStockOptions.com ("AdvisorFind") as a service to the users of myStockOptions.com ("the site"). In addition to this disclaimer, your use of AdvisorFind is governed by the general terms and conditions of myStockOptions.com. The advisors listed in AdvisorFind are not employees, agents, or contractors of myStockPlan.com Inc. The inclusion of an advisor in AdvisorFind by no means indicates an endorsement by myStockPlan.com Inc. of that advisor. myStockPlan.com Inc. has no direct financial interest in the business of listed advisors or in the relationship you may develop with them.

MYSTOCKPLAN.COM INC. ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR USE OF THE ADVISORFIND DIRECTORY. FURTHERMORE, MYSTOCKPLAN.COM INC. ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, FROM YOUR USE OF THIS DIRECTORY OR FROM THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF AN ADVISOR FOUND BY YOU THROUGH ADVISORFIND.

myStockPlan.com Inc. has not verified the experience, credentials, or professional licensing of the advisors listed in AdvisorFind and can provide no assurances that a listed advisor is capable of providing the services you seek. myStockPlan.com Inc. also provides no assurances that any advisor listed on AdvisorFind is independent with respect to the investments he or she recommends. The advisor may derive compensation directly from the sale of interests in investment securities. Whenever you hire legal, tax, or financial help, you must be careful about whom you are hiring and how your investments are handled. Carefully assess their qualifications.

Independent sources for checking the background of advisors and their firms, regulatory filings by advisors, and any violations by advisors include the following.

  1. BrokerCheck, created by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (formerly called the National Association of Securities Dealers, or NASD). This resource includes mainly the representatives of brokerage firms rather than independent registered investment advisors (for the latter, see the SEC's IAPD Program below).

  2. Investment Adviser Public Disclosure (IAPD) Program of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC's resource includes mainly registered investment advisors (RIAs), i.e. independent financial advisors rather than the representatives of brokerage firms (for the latter, see BrokerCheck above).

  3. Securities regulators in your state and in the state where your advisor is located, if different. The North American Securities Administrators Association has resources to help start your research.

  4. The website of the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Board of Standards lets you search registered CFPs to confirm an advisor's CFP status. The records report whether a CFP has been publicly disciplined by the CFP Board.

  5. At the website of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), you can search the disciplinary records to see whether a CPA has been disciplined.

  6. The website FindLaw has a section where you can search for any disciplinary actions taken against attorneys. The resource is divided by state, so you will need to know the state(s) the lawyer practices in to find out whether the attorney is eligible to practice there and whether he or she has ever been disciplined there.

  7. Various services offer broader background checks in public records, including USA People Search and Backgroundchecks.com.

We recommend that you check these resources when considering the financial services offered by an advisor or firm.

Please do not expect free advice from the advisors listed in AdvisorFind. They earn their living by offering paid professional products and services.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE ABOVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE ADVISORFIND DIRECTORY.
