The Website and Road Map are intended to be accessed by independent intermediaries who are based in the UK. However, these Terms apply to citizens or residents of or located in any country or jurisdiction who may access the Website and Road Map. All persons, including any non-UK residents, must satisfy themselves that they are not subject to any local requirements which would restrict or prohibit them from accessing the Website and Road Map.

The Website, Road Map and the Content do not constitute an offer or invitation to anyone to invest in any product managed by Russell or use any Russell services in any jurisdiction where such offer or invitation is not lawful or in which the person making such offer or invitation is not qualified to do so.

Accuracy of the Content
The Website, Road Map and the Content are provided "as is" and on an "as available" basis. Unless otherwise specified, Russell is the source of all data. Whilst Russell has taken reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy, correctness and completeness of the Content, Russell does not give or make any warranty or representation of any kind and all implied warranties are excluded from the Terms to the extent that they may be excluded as a matter of law.

The information contained in the Website and Road Map has been obtained from sources that Russell believes to be reliable but its accuracy and completeness are not guaranteed. Russell may obtain market data from third parties who are independent of Russell.

Products and the purpose of the tools and model portfolios
The tools are designed to assist you in analysing your clients' requirements but any advice you provide or consequent decision by an investor to engage in investment activity is a matter for you to discuss with your client. Before you advise your clients, you must of course bear in mind all relevant matters regarding fluctuation in valuation of investments, past performance not being a reliable indicator of future performance and all other securities specific risk factors. An investor may not receive back the amount originally invested. Where overseas securities are referred to or held, the rate of exchange may cause the value of the securities to up as well as down. Any forecast, projection or target is indicative only and not guaranteed in any way. Russell accepts no liability for any failure to meet such a forecast, projection or target. In the case of investments for which there is not a recognised market it may be difficult for investors to sell their investment or to obtain reliable information about its value or the extent of the risks to which it is exposed. Russell cannot be held responsible for any consequence of any action carried out by a user of this site utilising the tools. Further details of the assumptions and bases on which the tools have been devised are available on request. Russell does not warrant that the tools are capable of generating accurate results, accurate calculations or complete data.

However, please note that the Road Map does not contain an exhaustive list of all of the matters that you should discuss with your client. You should note that if you utilise this Road Map and, pursuant to your meetings with clients, you complete and update the Road Map in respect of particular clients, the information which you input will be stored on www.russelllink.co.uk ] by a third party supplier engaged on Russell's behalf.

This information will remain your record of your discussions with your clients but please note that you will need to ensure that you have appropriate consents from your clients to store their data on www.russelllink.co.uk.

The "Russell Proposal Generator" tool and model portfolios
The Russell Proposal Generator tool generates an investment proposal for your clients. Each proposal shall be one of a number of model portfolios created by Russell. It is important to review the proposal and the underlying funds that comprise the model portfolio to consider the possible impact on your client. You must ensure that the model portfolio and any funds in which your clients' assets will be invested are suitable for your clients. The Russell Proposal Generator tool is only designed to give you a broad idea of the investment strategy you may wish to consider for a client.
