We periodically review and update the terms and conditions, and you can always find the latest version here. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions below do not access this website or any pages thereof. The terms and conditions will apply irrespective of the specific use made by internet users of this website.
No Offer, Advice or Solicitation
This website is for information purposes only and does not constitute investment advice, professional advice or recommendation and is not intended to constitute financial, accounting, legal or tax advice. Nothing on the website should be construed as a recommendation or solicitation, to buy or an offer to sell, a security, or another product or service, or to engage in any investment strategy or transaction, or a representation about the suitability or appropriateness of any product or service. Many unknown factors may affect the applicability of any statement or comment on this website to your particular circumstances. Specifically, the products described may have tax implications for you. Investors should consult the appropriate professional advisors regarding the suitability of the investments mentioned on this site.
Availability of Investment Products and Services
This website describes products that may be registered for sale or use only in certain countries and jurisdictions. This website does not offer or promote any product in a jurisdiction where such offer or solicitation is prohibited.
Before you make any investment, you need to confirm that it is available to you. Prospective investors who are not resident in Canada should contact their financial representative to determine if securities may lawfully be sold in their jurisdiction.
Investment Risk Disclosure
Past performance is not indicative of future results. It should not be construed as investment advice or relied upon in making an investment decision. There is risk involved with investments, and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Investment value and returns can go down as well as up and can be affected by exchange rates. Therefore, you may not get back the full amount you invested.
Commissions, management fees and expenses may be associated with investments in mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs). Trailing commissions may be associated with investments in mutual funds. Please read the prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return for a fund are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns. BMO Mutual funds and BMO ETFs are not insured by Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) or any other government deposit insurer and are not guaranteed by Bank of Montreal. There can be no assurances that a money market fund will be able to maintain its net asset value per security at a constant amount or that the full amount of your investment in the fund will be returned to you. Mutual funds and ETFs are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Distributions are not guaranteed and are subject to change and/or elimination.
Please speak to your advisor before investing. BMO ETFs and ETF Series of BMO Mutual Funds trade like stocks, fluctuate in market value and may trade at a discount to their net asset value, which may increase the risk of loss. If the securities are purchased or sold on a stock exchange, you may pay more or receive less than the current net asset value.
This website may contain forward-looking statements. Any statement that necessarily depends on future events may be a forward-looking statement. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. They involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Although such statements are based on assumptions that are believed to be reasonable, there can be no assurance that actual results will not differ materially from expectations. You are cautioned not to rely unduly on any forward-looking statements as a number of important factors could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement. All opinions in forward-looking statements are subject to change without notice and are provided in good faith but without legal responsibility.
BMO Global Asset Management undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise provide notice of change or revise any forward-looking statement or information whether as a result of new information, future events or other such factors which affect this information, except as required by law.
