Terms of Service
Pluto is an education-only platform. Pluto’s content has been prepared exclusively for information and educational purposes of our users. Please note that we do not provide any financial planning, accounting, investment advisory or tax advisory or any other financial advice nor recommendation. If you need financial advice please contact a qualified financial advisor. Nothing on the platform constitutes an offer to buy or sell or an inducement to buy or sell any security, product, service or investment. The learning information available by Pluto is not and does not constitute investment advice. Pluto does not provide any warranty or guarantee as to the accuracy, completeness or suitability of the information provided for any particular individual purpose. As Pluto is an education-only platform, it is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) nor protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Please be aware Pluto does not provide any real money or real investing services. While sponsorship partners within the app may provide such services, this is outside the Pluto platform and bound by different terms and conditions. Pluto does not accept any responsibility or liability for services provided by such partners or any losses incurred. Be careful. Please do your own research before making any investments with real money financial services organisations, as your capital will be at risk.
