- FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
Certain statements in the Website and the content may constitute “forward-looking” statements that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual returns of investment to be materially different from any future returns or values expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

These statements reflect current expectations regarding future events and speak only as of the date of being posted to the Website. Forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be read as guarantees of future performance or returns, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such returns will be achieved. Given these uncertainties and risks, users of the Website, including any person who may or has invested using the BTI technology platform, are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.
A variety of factors could cause the actual results and developments of any investment to differ significantly from the results and developments forecasted and implied.
