Services Provided

In addition to essays and stories that illustrate important ideas, we provide ideas on a wide range of investment strategies, vehicles, and securities.

We are publishers and not financial advisors.

We cannot, and we do not provide investment advice tailored to your personal situation.

We make recommendations, but those should not be construed as personal investment advice. Because our advice is public, some of the particular strategies or recommendations may not be appropriate for any particular individual. Even when we answer questions from readers, our advice is meant to be of general purpose and not specific to any individual.

In addition to publishing editorial material, First Macro Capital may carry advertising, either for our own publications or those of other publishers. We are very proud of the quality of the publications we produce. We believe they are the best in the business. And because we are proud of them, we are happy to sell them. As to outside advertising, we cannot make claims for the businesses that place them. We can only promise to do our best to include advertising from companies we respect and to tell you the truth about our relationship with them.

One of the core tenets of our wealth-building philosophy concerns risk. We believe that long-term wealth building relies on reducing risk at every opportunity. It must be acknowledged that investments, by their very nature, are risky. And some are riskier than others.

At First Macro Capital we are diligent in citing sources and checking facts. Still, we cannot guarantee that we won’t occasionally print information that is unintentionally inaccurate in some way. The prudent reader will always double-check any important financial information, such as stock prices or balance sheet facts, before making final decisions. As with anything, always do your own due diligence.

Paul Farrugia, First Macro Capital, and other entities in which he has an interest, including employees, managers, members, officers, family, and associates of the foregoing may from time to time have positions in the securities or commodities described in the material published as part of our Services. Policies are in effect that attempts to avoid potential conflicts of interest, and we endeavor to resolve conflicts of interest that do arise in a timely fashion.

Content Not to be construed as Personal Investment Advice

The material published as part of the Services has been prepared for informational purposes only without regard to your individual investment objectives, financial situation or means. Information published as part of the Services is not intended to constitute individual investment advice and is not designed to meet your personal financial situation. The material is not to be construed as an offer to buy or sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or sell, any security, financial product or instrument; or to participate in any particular trading strategy in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or trading strategy would be illegal.

No Determination of Suitability Made; Not All Risks Disclosed; Private Advisors Recommended

The fact that we have made information available to you through the Services is neither a recommendation that you enter into a particular transaction nor a representation that any investment described in the Services is suitable or appropriate for you. Many of the investments described by our Services involve significant risks, and you should not enter into any transactions unless you fully understand all such risks and have independently determined that such transactions are appropriate for you. Any discussion of the risks contained herein with respect to any product should not be considered to be a disclosure of all risks or complete discussion of the risks which are mentioned.

Our role is that of a publisher and the role of our editors is to provide you with financial information that you can use to make your own investing decisions.

Subscribers should not view any of our publications as offering personalized legal or investment counseling. Investments recommended in any publication should be made only after consulting with your investment advisor and only after reviewing the prospectus or financial statements of the company in question.

Financings and Fees

We do not receive or solicit any compensation from recommending a company within our Paid Services. We do not receive any broker fees, finders fees or warrants as part of any private placements recommended within the Paid Services.
