What Does the Services Offer?
The Services offer access to the commercial demo version of the meetinvest single stock, expert based, algorithm driven Robo Advisor. Other than the free stock screening tool, it provides a proof of concept for you to assess a potential commercial use for the organization you are representing, that can lead into a cooperation with meetinvest.
This product works like a digital investment advisor based on multiple expert strategies. The criteria and formula for each of the strategies are defined by our interpretation of the investment approaches of various stock market experts after studying all their relevant literature available (books, research papers, reports, interviews). A portrayed author (or expert) may or may not actually invest in a passing stock. The idea of this Service is to systematically replicate the investment philosophy of the most prestigious and reputable investment heavyweights.

The use of the Services for commercial purposes, including for marketing, promoting, offering, selling any products or services is prohibited.

Why Am I Fully Responsible for the Use of the Services?
The Services and any tool, information, content and data offered as a part thereof are provided and maintained by meetinvest for the sole purpose of assessing a potential collaboration with meetinvest. Neither the strategies nor the formulas have been discussed, reviewed, supported or approved by any third party (including the authors (experts) of the portrayed investment strategies). All content on the stock selection tool had been created after studying the relevant and available literature about the topic. The output of the stock screening tool is computer generated, employing the formulas, but no human being or analyst has reviewed, checked or approved such results. There is a risk of loss when investing. The tools, information, content and data contained in the Services is for assessment purposes only. You hereby acknowledge and agree that neither meetinvest nor its representatives and employees make any representations, warranties or guarantees, express or implied, as to the accuracy, correctness, timeliness, regularity, completeness and up-to-dateness of the Services. Neither meetinvest nor its representatives and employees shall have any liability to you or any other person as a result of your access to and use of meetinvest and any Services, tools, information, content and data offered as a part thereof. You acknowledge and agree that you assume full responsibility for all actions, inactions, ideas, opinions and conclusions derived from the access to and use of the Services and any tool, information, content and data offered as a part thereof. All information has been obtained from sources, which are believed to be reliable, but accuracy and thoroughness cannot be guaranteed. Users are solely responsible for how they use the information and for their results. meetinvest does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the information or any analysis based thereon. Hypothetical performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations: One is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical performance does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical back-testing record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual investing. For example, the ability to withstand losses in a market correction or to adhere to a particular investment strategy in spite of temporary losses is a material point that can also adversely affect actual results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific investment strategy, which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual investment results. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated hypothetical performance results do not represent actual investing. Also, since the buys and sells have not actually been executed, the results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. No representation is being made that any strategy calculated will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular investment strategy.
