Are you a financial advisor?Join us

The services of FinanceHQ, LLC ("FinanceHQ”) include providing general information, which is not intended as financial advice, and referring users to registered third-party financial advisors who have agreed to be matched to users of our website (our “Advisor Network”). FinanceHQ does not review the ongoing performance of any Advisor, participate in the management of any user's account by an Advisor, or provide advice regarding specific investments. We do not manage client funds or hold custody of assets. We may receive compensation for matching users to members of our Advisor Network, and this can affect the matches we present to our users.

Nothing in our service involves an offer to buy or sell any security or interest. If you choose to work with a registered financial advisor that we match you with, any investment advice they provide is offered entirely by them, without input from us. All investing involves risk, including loss of principal. Working with an advisor may come with potential downsides such as payment of fees (which may reduce returns). There are no guarantees that working with an advisor will yield positive returns. The existence of a fiduciary duty does not prevent the rise of potential conflicts of interest.
