Legal Disclosures

Effective Date: November 19th, 2018

General Information

Jon V, Inc. d/b/a AgentRisk operates the website, which includes our blog and "our app" or "AgentRisk". This website is for informational purposes only. For more information read our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy as well.

Nothing on this Site or App should be construed as a solicitation or offer, or recommendation, to buy or sell any security.

AgentRisk is an SEC registered investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Additional information can be accessed directly from the Informational Brochure or Form ADV.

Our services are only provided to investors who become AgentRisk Clients ("Clients") pursuant to a written Client Agreement, which investors are urged to read carefully in order to determine whether becoming a client is in their best interest and whether our service is suitable for them.

It should not be assumed that any information discussed herein will prove to be profitable or that decisions in the future will be profitable or provide similar results. All investments involve risk and may result in loss.

System response and account access times may vary due to a variety of factors, including trading volumes, market conditions, system performance, and other factors.

Asset Custody

AgentRisk is not a custodian. Client’s assets are held by Interactive Brokers. AgentRisk automatically opens an Interactive Brokers account on behalf of each of its clients, to which the client has full access. By entering into a client Agreement with AgentRisk, you also agree to an account being created in your name on Interactive Brokers. Additionally, you authorize Interactive Brokers to automatically charge your account with our fee and to remit such fee to us in accordance with required regulatory procedures.

Past Performance

The performance data quoted on the website represents past performance based on real data and does not guarantee future results. Performance information is presented net of all management fees and expenses unless marked otherwise. Commissions are not considered since AgentRisk does not charge trading commissions. Investor returns will differ from the results shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate; thus an investor's assets, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than return data quoted herein.

The performance charts are provided for informational purposes, and should not be used as the basis for making an investment decision. We rely on mathematical formulas, computer programs, and pricing information from third-party vendors to provide these returns. NeitherAgentRisk nor any of its data or content providers shall be liable for any errors in this information or any actions taken by you in reliance upon this information. The custodial statement provided to you by Interactive Brokers is the official record of your transactions, holdings and tax lots.

Backtesting of Hypothetical Portfolios

Some of the charts shown on this website may not be representative of actual data. In those cases, they will be clearly marked as Hypothetical. Backtested performance does not represent actual performance and should not be interpreted as a indication of the performance ofAgentRisk, its portfolios or the success of future investments with the firm. Backtested performance results have certain inherent limitations. Such results do not represent the impact that material economic and market factors may have had on an advisor’s decision-making process if the advisor were actually managing the money. Backtested data also differs from actual performance data because it is achieved through the retroactive application of a model portfolio with the benefit of hindsight. As a result, the models may be changed from time to time theoretically and the effect on performance results could be either favorable or unfavorable.

The data used to calculate the backtested returns are run through AgentRisk’s proprietary investment algorithms, which simulate the account investing and rebalancing that would have occurred had the portfolio been in existence. AgentRisk advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".

While AgentRisk will utilize actual historical data whenever available, certain historical pricing and returns, including options pricing, may be unavailable. In these instances, pricing may be computed using generally accepted investment models, such as the Black-Scholes options pricing model. Therefore, the model may not reflect actual pricing of options that were available in the market at that time. If actual data is not available, AgentRisk will utilize the pricing model that is the most accurate representation of investment pricing that is currently available. Any computed or assumed data will be identified as such.

Average Client Returns

Average client returns are calculated by AgentRisk and are composed of the average, time-weighted returns of all active client investments (some of which may contain investment restrictions) to the underlying portfolio. These daily average returns are then linked together for the time-frame presented. These returns include cash, dividends, earnings distributions, broker commissions and AgentRisk advisory fees.

Average client returns are not available for any period in which there were no active investments associated with the portfolio.

Actual performance in your account may differ from Average Client returns.

Performance Calculation

Performance of client accounts is calculated by AgentRisk daily on a time-weighted basis including cash, dividends paid, earnings distributions, broker commissions and AgentRisk advisory fees.


Certain portfolios on the AgentRisk platform may include options trading. Options trading involves a high degree of risk, is highly speculative, and is not suitable for all investors.AgentRisk clients should review this important disclosure before deciding to invest in portfolio strading options.

Please note that your brokerage account must be enabled for options trading to invest in options through your AgentRisk account.

AgentRisk clients contemplating options trading should carefully review and understand The Options Clearing Corporation’s ("OCC") disclosure document "Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options" and Interactive Brokers LLC’s "OCC Risk Disclosure Statement and Acknowledgements."

Trading options may result in the total loss of premiums and transaction costs. Option contracts are traded for a specified period of time and have no value after expiration. Trading halts in the underlying security, or other trading conditions (e.g., volatility, liquidity, system failures) may cause the trading market for one or all options to be unavailable, in which case, the holder or writer of an option would not be able to engage in a closing transaction, and would remain obligated until expiration or assignment.

If you are uncomfortable with the level of risk associated with options trading, you should contact AgentRisk at 315.925.7475 to let us know.

AgentRisk Boost ™

We achieve "boost" by incorporating options strategies (selling option calls over an asset that you have in your portfolio) that might incur tax events or end up in losing the underlining asset.Even though our algorithms will try not to trigger any tax events due to liquidation of the underlining asset, markets are unpredictable and deployment of the strategy might result in losses.

AgentRisk Shield ™

We achieve "shield" by incorporating options strategies (buying option puts) that might incur tax events. Even though our algorithms will try to find possible market drops there are no guarantees as markets are unpredictable and deployment of the strategy might result in losses.

Algorithmic Dividends ™

Algorithmic Dividends are generated by selling option calls over existing assets. They are not guaranteed and are irregular with regards to their generated value and their frequency. Algorithmic dividends and might result in losses and tax events.
