For Individual Investors

High Net Worth Individual

If you earn more than £100,000 a year or have net assets of more than £250,000, the High Net Worth category is probably applicable to you.

I certify to the following HIGH NET WORTH INVESTOR STATEMENT;

I make this statement so that I can receive promotional communications which are exempt from the restriction on promotion of non-readily realisable securities. The exemption relates to certified high net worth investors and I declare that I qualify as such because at least one of the following applies to me: I had, throughout the financial year immediately preceding today’s date, an annual income to the value of £100,000 or more. Annual income for these purposes does not include money withdrawn from my pension savings (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement). I held, throughout the financial year immediately preceding today’s date, net assets to the value of £250,000 or more. Net assets for these purposes do not include:

  • the property which is my primary residence or any money raised through a loan secured on that property; or
  • any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance; or
  • any benefits (in the form of pensions or otherwise) which are payable on the termination of my service or on my death or retirement and to which I am (or my dependants are), or may be, entitled; or
  • any withdrawals from my pension savings (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement). I accept that the investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the money or other property invested. I am aware that it is open to me to seek advice from an authorised person who specialises in advising on non-readily realisable securities.

I acknowledge the risk statement and confirm the above statement is accurate.

Sophisticated Investor

If you have invested in more than one unlisted company in the last two years or been a member of a business angel syndicate or network for at least six months.

I declare that I am a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the restriction on promotion of non-readily realisable securities. I understand that this means:

  • I can receive promotional communications made by a person who is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority which relate to investment activity in non-readily realisable securities; and
  • The investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the property invested.

I am a self-certified sophisticated investor because at least one of the following applies:

  • I am a member of a network or syndicate of business angels and have been so for at least the last six months prior to today’s date;
  • I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the two years prior to today’s date;
  • I am working, or have worked in the two years prior to today’s date, in a professional capacity in the private equity sector, or in the provision of finance for small and medium enterprises; or
  • I am currently, or have been in the two years prior to today’s date, a director of a company with an annual turnover of at least £1 million.

I accept that the investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the money or other property invested. I am aware that it is open to me to seek advice from an authorised person who specialises in advising on non-readily realisable securities.

I acknowledge the risk statement and confirm the above statement is accurate

Restricted Investor

You agree to invest no more than 10% of your net assets into company shares, bonds, funds or any other securities which are not listed or sold on a stock exchange.

I make this statement so that I can receive promotional communications relating to non-readily realisable securities as a restricted investor. I declare that I qualify as a restricted investor because:

  • In the twelve months preceding today’s date, I have not invested more than 10% of my net assets in non-readily realisable securities;
  • and I undertake that in the twelve months following today’s date, I will not invest more than 10% of my net assets in non-readily realisable securities.

Net assets for these purposes do not include:

  • The property which is my primary residence or any money raised through a loan secured on that property;
  • Any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance;
  • or Any benefits (in the form of pensions or otherwise) which are payable on the termination of my service or on my death or retirement and to which I am (or my dependants are), or may be entitled;
  • or Any withdrawals from my pension savings (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement).I accept that the investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the money or other property invested. I am aware that it is open to me to seek advice from an authorised person who specialises in advising on non-readily realisable securities.
