I declare that I am a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the restriction on promotion of non-mainstream pooled investments. I understand 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; 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, prior to the date of my ticking the "self-certified sophisticated investor" box, 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;
I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the last two years;
I am working, or have worked during the last two years, in a professional capacity in the private equity sector, or in the provision of finance for small and medium enterprises;
I am currently, or have been in the last two years, a director of a company with an annual turnover of at least GBP1 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.
