Self-Certified Sophisticated Investor

Self-Certified Sophisticated Investor

I declare that I am a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act (Financial Promotion) Order 2005.

I understand that this means:

  • (a) I can receive financial promotions that may not have been approved by a person authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority;
  • (b) the content of such financial promotions may not conform to rules issued by the Financial Conduct Authority;
  • (c) by signing this statement I may lose significant rights;
  • (d) I may have no right to complain to either of the following—
    1. (i) the Financial Conduct Authority; or
    2. (ii) the Financial Ombudsman Scheme;
  • (e) I may have no right to seek compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

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 £l million.

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.
