Investments of this type carry risks to your capital and are illiquid in nature. Tax reliefs depend on individual circumstances, maybe subject to change and depend on the investee companies maintaining their qualifying status. Investments should only be made on consideration of the full IM and the detailed risk factors contained therein.
SELF-CERTIFIED SOPHISTICATED INVESTOR STATEMENT
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.
