Item 3
Disciplinary Information

 

If there are legal or disciplinary events material to your evaluation of Mr. Grinberg, we are required to disclose all material facts regarding those events.1

We have nothing to disclose in this regard.

1Note:Our firm may, under certain circumstances, rebut the presumption that a disciplinary event is material. If an event is immaterial, we are not required to disclose it. When we review a legal or disciplinary event involving Mr. Grinberg to determine whether it is appropriate to rebut the presumption of materiality, we consider all of the following factors: (1) the proximity of Mr. Grinberg to the advisory function; (2) the nature of the infraction that led to the disciplinary event; (3) the severity of the disciplinary sanction; and (4) the time elapsed since the date of the disciplinary event. If we conclude that the materiality presumption has been overcome, we prepare and maintain a file memorandum of our determination in our records. We follow SEC rule 204-2(a)(14)(iii) and similar state rules.

1. If Mr. Grinberg receives commissions, bonuses or other compensation based on the sale of securities or other investment products, including as a broker-dealer or registered representative, and including distribution or service (“trail”) fees from the sale of mutual funds, we have to disclose this fact. If this compensation is not cash, we are required to explain what type of compensation Mr. Grinberg receives. We must explain that this practice gives Mr. Grinberg an incentive to recommend investment products based on the compensation received, rather than on your needs.
