  1. Investment Tools and Model Predictions

Although Ritz carefully evaluates potential returns based on historic performance, Ritz makes no representation regarding the likelihood or probability that any actual or proposed account allocation will in fact achieve a particular investment outcome or goal.

Portfolio performance projected are based on the Platform’s current recommended portfolios. While “May” provides helpful investing guidance, you must carefully consider the appropriateness of the proposed investments in light of your own personal financial circumstances, including cash flow needs, tax circumstances, or other complex or subjective concerns.

You are urged to use all available resources to educate yourself about investing in general, as well as the investments and the overall composition of your account. Additionally, your personal financial circumstances may change – perhaps suddenly or gradually over time. Monitoring and adjusting your account to suit changing circumstances is your responsibility, and it is recommended that you reassess any investing program on a regular basis to ensure that it remains consistent with your current financial resources and investment objectives.

Subject to your subscription preference and the clear directives on the platform, Ritz may at its discretion, whether discretely or commingled with the resources of other persons, invest, convert from one form to another, sell, re-invest and generally manage on your behalf any funds, securities or other assets comprised in or attributable to your account or use of the Platform.

  1. Investment Liquidation Policy

In the event that you request an early liquidation of your investment before the maturity of your investment, you may be charged a liquidation fee on the amount being invested. A liquidation request before the investment tenor elapsed will attract 15% severance and administrative charge of 30% on the invested sum. However, termination will only be entertained halfway through the agreed timeframe and matured funds will be automatically moved to your wallet, and you can choose to withdraw or re-invest.

Withdrawal Notice

In the event that you want your capital at expiry date of your investment business, you are be required to give a month notice to admin@ritzinvests.com or any of our available means of communication. Once notice is received, a withdrawal form will be issued at expiry date. After submitting the signed withdrawal form, your payment will be processed for prompt payment.
