(“Carte”) Representative I am dually occupied as a registered mutual funds salesperson, a licensed Life Insurance Advisor, a Cyber Security Coordinator, a Treasurer and a Multi-Level Agent.

The sale of life insurance products & services, my role as a Cyber Security Coordinator, my role as a Treasurer and my role as a Multi-Level Agent, are not the business of, or under the supervision of Carte, and Carte will not be liable or responsible for such activities.
