I am a professional financial adviser, authorised and regulated by the FCA.

I declare that I am a certified high net worth individual for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2001.

I understand that this means:

  1. I can receive financial promotions that may not have been approved by a person authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority;
  2. the content of such financial promotions may not conform to rules issued by the Financial Conduct Authority;
  3. by signing this statement I may lose significant rights;
  4. I may have no right to complain to either of the following: the Financial Conduct Authority; or the Financial Ombudsman Scheme;
  5. I may have no right to seek compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

I am a certified high net worth individual because at least one of the following applies:

  1. I had, during the financial year immediately preceding the date below, an annual income to the value of £100,000 or more;
  2. I held, throughout the financial year immediately preceding the date below, 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 loan secured on that residence; any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance within the meaning of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001; 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.

I accept that I can lose my property and other assets from making investment decisions based on financial promotions.

I am aware that it is open to me to seek advice from someone who specialises in advising on investments.

Investor details

I do not plan to invest more than 10% of my net assets into higher risk investments.

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:

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

Net assets for these purposes do not include:

  1. the property which is my primary residence or any money raised through a loan secured on that property;
  2. any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance; or
  3. 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
  4. 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 specialise in advising on non-readily realisable securities.
