Please refer to the following guidelines when interacting with us via social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube among others. We reserve the right to restrict users and/or moderate and remove content posted by third parties to our social media pages, including anything deemed inappropriate or in violation of our guidelines or applicable law.
- Be Respectful: Do not post offensive or inappropriate material, and treat all users with respect.

Information posted by Virtus on any social media site is intended for informational purposes only and should not be interpreted as investment advice. Any information posted on behalf of any Virtus employee represents that individual’s current opinion. These opinions may change with market conditions and without notice and do not represent the views of Virtus as a firm. These opinions are not meant as investment advice. Please consult with a qualified professional for this type of advice. Content on our social networking pages (including but not limited to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube) is for U.S. residents only and does not constitute an offer to purchase securities, products or services in any jurisdiction to any person to whom it is not lawful to make such an offer.
While third party users may post, comment on, or otherwise interact with us via social media, these postings, and the opinions contained therein, are the responsibility of the user and are not endorsed by Virtus. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of content posted by others. Such content does not reflect the views of Virtus or its affiliates. Any third party sites that may be linked to us through our social media pages are not endorsed by Virtus, and we are not responsible for the policies of third party sites. The decision to ‘connect’ with or ‘follow’ any third party social media account by Virtus or any Virtus employee does not constitute an endorsement.
We may change our social media guidelines from time to time. We suggest that you check these guidelines periodically for changes.
