CERTIFICATE FOR EXECUTION BY SELF-CERTIFIED SOPHISTICATED INVESTORS
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) I can receive promotional communications made by a person who is not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority which relate to investment activity in non-readily realisable securities.
- (ii) the investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all the property invested.
I am a self-certified sophisticated investor because at least one of the following applies:
- (a) 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 the date below.
- (b) I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the two years prior to the date below.
- (c) I am working, or have worked in the two years prior to the date below, in a professional capacity in the private equity sector, or in the provision of finance for small and medium enterprises.
- (d) I am currently, or have been in the two years prior to the date below, 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 someone who specialises in advising on non-readily realisable securities.
