2. Investment Disclaimers

Waud Capital Partners is an investment adviser registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended.  Registration of an investment adviser with the SEC does not imply a certain level of skill or training.

All information contained on this website, including any transaction described therein, is for informational and/or illustrative purposes only.  Statements contained on this website that are not historical facts are based on current views, forward-looking expectations, estimates, projections, opinions and/or beliefs of the Waud Capital Partners team.  Such statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors.  You should not rely on these statements as if they were facts. 

For prospective investors in Switzerland, this website is intended for Qualified Investors only.

The investments and strategies discussed throughout the website may not be suitable for all investors and are not obligations of or guaranteed by Waud Capital Partners or any of its affiliates.  Nothing on this website is to be construed as a solicitation to offer investment advice or services.  Information about investing in Waud Capital Partners funds is only available in the form of private placement memoranda and other offering documents.  These documents contain information to help investors evaluate Waud Capital Partners funds’ investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses, among other factors, before considering an investment.  By using this website, you agree that Waud Capital Partners is not liable for any action you take or decision you make in reliance on any website content.  Further information about Waud Capital Partners is also available in Waud Capital Partners’ Form ADV Part 2, filed with the SEC.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative, nor a guarantee, of future results and no representation is made that any fund will or is likely to achieve results that are similar to those of Waud Capital Partners’ or its principals’ current or previous funds.  Prior investments may have been made under different market, economic or other conditions than those in which future investments and/or strategies will be pursued, and as a result may not be replicated.  Investors may lose part or all of their investment capital or face various other risks as described in the applicable offering documents. 

The title “Operating Partner” is not intended to indicate status as a partner, principal or employee of Waud Capital Partners or other Waud Capital Partners affiliate.  Operating Partners provide expertise to Waud Capital Partners and its portfolio companies.  Some are independent contractors or employees of current or former portfolio companies and have business or investment activities unrelated to Waud Capital Partners.

Testimonials of operating partners/portfolio company executives are provided to demonstrate the benefits of working with the Waud Capital Partners team.  They are not provided to solicit investors in a Waud Capital Partners fund.  Some operating partners/executives featured in the testimonials have an interest in a Waud Capital Partners fund; such operating partner’s/executive’s testimonial is not offered on the basis of being an investor in a Waud Capital Partners fund but rather as an operating partner/executive who works with the Waud Capital Partners team.  Additionally, Waud Capital Partners operating partners are compensated for their work with Waud Capital Partners.

Portfolio companies described in this website and testimonial videos do not purport to represent all portfolio company investments made by Waud Capital Partners.  Not all of our portfolio investments had the characteristics, prospects, or projected successes highlighted.  Past results are not indicative, nor a guarantee, of future results, which may vary. 

Neither Waud Capital Partners nor the funds it manages are considered to be ESG-focused.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, as determined appropriate and in its sole discretion, Waud Capital Partners takes certain ESG-considerations into account in the selection, management and investment decisions related to portfolio investments; however, the type of considerations and the weight given to such considerations may vary from investment to investment and remains subject to Waud Capital Partners’ discretion, fund investment objectives/constraints and any underlying fiduciary duties.  Any discussion of ESG issues or results contained on this website is subject to the foregoing limitations.
