Segment’s web site is limited to the dissemination of general information pertaining to its advisory services, together with access to additional investment-related information, publications, and links. Accordingly, the publication of Segment’s web site on the Internet should not be construed by any consumer and/or prospective client as Segment’s solicitation to effect, or attempt to effect transactions in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation, over the Internet. Any subsequent, direct communication by Segment with a prospective client shall be conducted by a representative that is either registered or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration in the state where the prospective client resides.

Certain portions of Segment’s web site (i.e. newsletters, articles, commentaries, etc.) may contain a discussion of, and/or provide access to, Segment (and those of other investment and non-investment professionals) positions and/or recommendations as of a specific prior date.
