Important Disclosures & Terms and Conditions

Last Updated: September 22, 2023

General Disclosures

We aren’t actually saying that by becoming an Arta member you’ll get a magical ability, like conjuring returns out of nothing or a crystal ball that lets you time the markets. The information displayed on this website, this video, or media from Arta Finance is for informational purposes only and is not an offer or solicitation to purchase or sell securities. Investing involves risks, including the potential for principal loss. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The investments discussed herein may be unsuitable for investors depending on their specific investment objectives as well as financial and tax position. Investors should independently evaluate each investment discussed in the context of their own objectives, risk profile and circumstances before deciding to invest with Arta Finance. There is no guarantee that the strategies and services offered by Arta Finance will be successful or outperform other strategies and services. Investors should seek the advice of a tax professional before making any investment. All opinions expressed herein constitute the author or quoted individual(s)’s judgment as of the date of this document and are subject to change without notice.

Statements made are not facts, including statements regarding trends, market conditions and the experience or expertise of the author or quoted individual(s) are based on current expectations, estimates, opinions and/or beliefs. Opinions expressed by other members on Arta Insider should not be viewed as investment recommendations from Arta Finance. Endorsements and Testimonials were provided at the request of Arta Finance. Unless otherwise noted, testimonials are provided by clients and may not be representative of the experience of other clients. Arta Finance is not affiliated with and does not purport to own or control any third-party content linked herein.

Algorithmic Investment Recommendations

Arta Finance delivers investment recommendations algorithmically relative to investment opportunities. Such recommendations are based upon each individual client’s input and such input should be updated if the client becomes aware of material inaccuracies to ensure appropriate recommendations are provided. Arta Finance relies on the accuracy of such inputs in order to ensure suitable recommendations for each individual client.

Investors should note that recommendations provided to investors algorithmically are reliant on the training of the algorithm by Arta. This process is constantly evolving and being refined to meet our client’s needs, however, Arta can not guarantee all recommendations made by an algorithm will be appropriate for any individual client. As such, recommendations provided by an algorithm may carry enhanced levels of risk, may not be suitable for the client, and may result in the loss of principal if an investment is made based on the algorithmic recommendation. Clients should not rely solely on algorithmic recommendations when making investments.

AI-Managed Portfolios (“AMPs”)

AI-Managed Portfolios (“AMPs”) use proprietary algorithms to invest your funds based on the certain parameters you selected, such as risk and sector preferences. You cannot issue trading instructions to purchase and/or sell specific securities in your AMPs. Typically, it could take up to five trading days from your creation and funding of an AMP to when trading begins and your funds are invested. Arta will aim to evaluate whether the portfolio needs to be adjusted every trading day, but may not place trades every day. Certain AMPs seek to achieve a specific risk level as described during the AMP creation process. While AMPs are designed to closely target the preferences selected by the member, the portfolio may not always match the preferences due to market fluctuations, temporary suspension of trading, market fundamentals changing, and other factors beyond Arta’s control.

The AMPs trading algorithms will be updated over time, and clients with the same parameters may be managed by different versions of the algorithms as newer versions are progressively rolled out. Trading algorithms may be updated without notice. Tax sensitive portfolios may experience additional divergence in how we manage portfolios that have a similar or same composition, in order to account for different tax situations (cost basis and member-specific tax situation).

Harvest Treasuries AMP

As of September 2023. The annual percentage yield (APY) presented here is estimated net of fees, and is based on the weighted average of the Yield to Maturity of the underlying assets. Yield to Maturity is a forward looking projection, and is subject to change based on market conditions such as interest rate changes. The realized yield may be higher or lower. The 30-day trailing Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yield for the AMP as of September 2023 is 5.26%, estimated based on the weighted average of the most recent 30-day SEC yields for the underlying assets. Arta is waiving fees through 2023. Past performance doesn’t guarantee future results. There are risks and limitations associated with the use of hypothetical performance, and such performance should not be used as the sole basis for investment decisions. The methodology for the conversion from YTM to APY is as follows: APY = 365 * [(1 + YTM/2) ^ (2/365) - 1]; and YTM = 2 * [(1 + APY/365) ^ (365/2) - 1]. All investments carry risk, including loss of principal.

National savings accounts average 0.42% APY (FDIC, July 17, 2023).

As of September 2023. Arta Finance makes no representations as to the accuracy of data published by third parties and such information is presented here for illustrative purposes only.

The underlying treasuries change in value when interest rates fluctuate (or when future expectations of interest rates change). Typically, when interest rates go up, all else being constant, bond prices will go down given that the relative attractiveness of the coupon payment of the bonds is lower relative to what it was before. A reduction in interest rates, conversely, would lead to an increase in the Treasuries’ value. Short duration fixed income securities are less exposed to fluctuations in interest rates than longer duration securities. Harvest Treasuries invests in short duration US Treasuries, and this is reflected in the generally low annualized price volatility of the basket of ETFs held by the AMP.

Hypothetical Performance

Certain hypothetical and backtested scenarios (“hypothetical performance”) are presented within Arta’s application and/or advertising material to aid in the decision-making process. It is essential to recognize that these scenarios are illustrative and do not guarantee or predict future investment performance, and do not constitute an offer to invest in a specific product or strategy. Past performance, whether hypothetical or actual, is not indicative of future results. Actual outcomes may differ significantly due to market fluctuations, economic changes, and unforeseen events; your investment experience may vary depending on your individual circumstances, risk tolerance, and the timing of your investments. There are risks and limitations associated with the use of hypothetical performance, and such performance should not be used as the sole basis for investment decisions due to the fact that historical results cannot be duplicated. Hypothetical performance data is based on historical data and simulated returns for certain asset classes in a portfolio, program, or strategy. Although the hypothetical performance presented may have outperformed a benchmark when applied historically, this does not mean that the same model will outperform the same benchmark in future market conditions. Unless otherwise noted, hypothetical performance results do not take into consideration fees, taxes, or other costs associated with actual investment. Investment returns and principal values will fluctuate, and investors may lose money, including potential loss of principal.

Alternative Investments (“Alts”)

Alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors. Investors should read each private fund’s materials and offering documents thoroughly to ensure comprehension of the investment opportunity and its relevant terms. Investors with frequent liquidity needs may not be suited for alternative investments due to the nature and length of the time horizons of such investments, as well as the minimum investments required. Not all alternative investments presented on Arta’s platform are registered investment funds. Alternative investments have a higher risk profile than other traditional investment instruments, which includes, but is not limited to, risks relating to valuation, liquidity, and potential loss of principal. The information provided by Arta relative to alternative investments is typically provided directly from the issuer(s). Such information is subject to change; Arta does not own or control this information, and cannot guarantee its accuracy. Arta displays a select menu of alternative investments on its platform for client investment; there are additional private funds and alternative investments that Arta clients could select through other avenues that may have lower fees or may otherwise be more suitable for a particular client, or perform better than alternative investments presented via our platform. Arta may be viewed as endorsing certain private funds by virtue of presenting such funds on its platform. Arta does not receive any incentive compensation from any fund sponsor. Additional conflicts of interest regarding specific private funds are disclosed as applicable in each fund’s investment memo (brochure) on the platform. Please refer to our disclosure documents, including Form ADV and Form CRS, for additional disclosures relative to our alternative and private investment offerings. It should be noted that individual fund sponsors are ultimately responsible for decisions regarding admittance into any specific fund, and such decisions are not made by Arta.

Line of Credit

Securities eligible as collateral include qualified equity, mutual funds, investment-grade corporate or municipal bonds, U.S. Treasuries.

The Line of Credit is provided by BNY Mellon Pershing, Arta’s custodian, where your securities will be securely held.

If the value of your collateral drops below a specific limit set by Pershing, your securities might be sold without warning. This rule applies to all your accounts with Pershing, not just the Line of Credit account. Keep in mind that these collateral requirements may change based on Pershing’s decisions and market conditions.

Rates available to our members and listed on this website are subject to change based on the following formulas. For members with a line of credit under $1,000,000 USD, the formula is Federal Funds Rate + 1.20%. For members with a line of credit of $1,000,000 or more, the formula is Federal Funds Rate + 1.00%. As of July 27, 2023, the Federal Funds Rate is 5.33%. In addition to interest charges, margin lines of credit may be subject to additional fees or penalties, as applicable.

Interest accrues monthly. You can choose to pay or it will be added to your principal balance. Failing to pay interest on a monthly basis will increase your principal balance, which will increase your interest payments over time.

You should consult a tax professional about your personal tax situation prior to using Line of Credit.

WealthGen Insurance

This is a general description of how some life insurance policies can work. It is not intended to be a recommendation for any specific insurance policy and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any product or service.

Income Stream Options

Risk of early exercise - it is possible you may sell your equity position (at the agreed price) even before the end of term.

While the behavior of the contract at expiration is defined, intermediate values of options will fluctuate with market conditions - if you use this Level-Up, you should intend to keep it through the contract term.

In this agreement, the buyer has ultimate discretion whether to purchase shares from you, even if the price rises above the agreed level. There is some downside protection for your equity position with the Income Stream strategy, but it's limited to the cash you received when you sell the option.

You should consult a tax professional about your personal tax situation prior to using Income Stream Options.

To learn more about the risks associated with options, please read the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before you begin trading options.

Smart Hedging

Risk of early exercise - it is possible you may sell your equity position (at the agreed price) even before the end of term.

Structured Products

An investment in a Structured Product involves significant risks. Such investments are not equivalent to investing directly in the underlying asset(s) or its components. Arta Finance urges you to read a more detailed explanation of risks relating to Structured Products in the material(s) provided by the underlying Issuer, which can be found on the Arta Platform. You should not purchase a Structured Product unless you understand and can bear the risks of making such an investment.

Structured Products are not suitable for all investors. When considering an investment in a Structured Product, investors should carefully consider, with applicable advisors, the suitability of any Structured Product in light of desired investment objectives and risk tolerance. Arta does not make any recommendation as to the suitability of investment in Structured Products. Arta displays a select menu of structured products on its platform for client investment; there are additional structured product investments that Arta clients could select through other avenues that may perform better than structured products presented on Arta’s platform or even have lower fees. Additional educational information regarding Structured Products provided by the SEC can be found here.

Principal is subject to issuer credit risk, unless the offering is specifically described as a “Structured Certificate of Deposit” or “Structured CD,” in which case FDIC insurance of principal up to $250,000 would apply. That is, if the underlying institution that issues the structured product defaults, investors may lose principal. Investors in Structured Products will not receive dividends typically available to investors in the underlying asset(s), as applicable.

Certain Structured Products may offer periodic liquidity, though this is not guaranteed. Investors should intend to hold these investments for their full term.

Please note that tax treatment of investments in Structured Products are often unique and investors should consult a tax professional prior to making any investment.

Waives Terms and Conditions

“Waives” can be applied to certain assets on the Arta platform to waive fees charged by Arta on those assets for 500 calendar days. The value of the fee waiver varies depending on the type of asset and amount of Waives used. Arta determines which assets are eligible for Waives in its sole discretion.

Waives are applied to the initial value of the assets and will not cover any fees created by the appreciation of the assets. Once applied, Waives are removed from the member’s balance and will not be refunded to the member if the assets decrease in value.

Members can have two categories of Waives at the same time: Waives that can be used against the member’s assets, and Waives that can be gifted to other members. Waives for gifting to other members can only be used by members other than the original recipient of the Waives.

Waives can be accepted anytime by anyone who qualifies with access to the acceptance link, but will expire after 60 days from the date of acceptance if not applied to assets. Waives must be accepted within six months from creation by the giving member.

Waives do not affect fees and costs charged by third parties, including but not limited to fees charged by funds and custodians. Upon the closure of a member’s account for any reason, the member’s Waive balances will be forfeited.
