Why should I consult through KnowledgeX?
Joining our Knowledge Community makes it easier for Advisors to develop valuable professional connections and find new opportunities. All our Advisors are compensated for their time and are only matched to highly targeted projects based on their expertise. Furthermore, we take the security of our Advisors and Clients information very seriously. We work within an extremely detailed compliance framework to ensure that all consultations facilitated by KnowledgeX are strictly based around non-material, publicly available information.
What is Material Non-Public Information?
“Material non-public information” is information on a company, that has not been made public, that would affect the share price and investment decisions as soon as that information becomes public. This is considered insider information. Information is “material” if a reasonable investor would consider that information as important when making an investment decision. In order to meet the threshold for materiality, there must exist a “"a substantial likelihood that the disclosure of the omitted fact would have been viewed by the reasonable investor as having significantly altered the 'total mix' of information made available." This could also relate to speculative or contingent events.
If I'm asked a question that would require me to reveal confidential inormation or Material Non-Public information, how should I respond?
It is against KnowledgeX's policy for Advisors to discuss confidential or material, non-public information during a consultation. If a question is asked, you should explain that you cannot answer the question because it would cause you to reveal confidential information. If you feel uncomfortable continuing the conversation you can end the call immediately and invoice KnowledgeX for the consultation.
How often will I be expected to consult?
We will reach out any time we have a project that matches your expertise and you have the freedom to choose whether you would like to consult or not.
Am I able to perform outside consulting under my employment agreement?
You should confer with your employer to confirm that you are permitted to consult through KnowledgeX. You are solely responsible for determining whether you are permitted to consult given your employment circumstances.
If I become an Advisor, am I able to consult for clients outside of KnowledgeX?
Of course. You are free to continue consulting with your existing clients and engage new clients. We only ask that you continue to work through KnowledgeX with any client to whom we first introduced you.
Do I need to prepare for the call?
Advsors are not required to perform any prep work prior to the call, unless explicitly requested. The consultations are informal in nature and our Clients are simply interested in your opinions and unique industry perspectives.
When I click "I Accept" to the KnowledgeX Advisor Terms & Conditions, am I legally bound to them?
Yes, once an Advisor clicks "I agree" they are legally bound to the Terms & Conditions. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read the terms in order to fully understand your obligations.
