To receive further information, I confirm I am a High Net Worth Investor, a Self-certified Sophisticated Investor or both.
High Net Worth Investor
I make this statement so I can receive promotional communications exempt from the restriction on promotion of non-readily realisable securities. The exemption relates to certified high net worth investors and I declare I qualify as such because at least one of the following applies to me throughout the last financial year:
- I had an annual income of £100,000 or more. This excludes money withdrawn from my pension (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement).
- I held net assets of £250,000 or more. These exclude: (a) my primary residence or any money raised through a loan secured on it; or (b) any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance; or (c) any benefits (in the form of pensions or otherwise) 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 (d) any withdrawals from my pension savings (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement).

Self-certified Sophisticated Investor
I declare I am a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the restriction on promotion of non-readily realisable securities. I understand this means I can receive promotional communications from a person authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority which relate to investments in non-readily realisable securities.
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;
- I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the last two years;
- I am working, or have worked in 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 £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.
