STATEMENT FOR SELF-CERTIFIED
I declare and self-certify that I am a sophisticated investor, which means I can receive financial promotions that may not have been approved by a person authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and that the content of such financial promotions may not conform to rules issued by the Financial Conduct Authority.
I am a self-certified sophisticated investor because at least one of the following applies:
1. 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;
2. I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the two years prior to the date below;
3. 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;
4. 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 agree and understand that I may lose significant rights which may include my right to complain to either the Financial Conduct Authority or the Financial Ombudsman Scheme. Furthermore, I may have no right to seek compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
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 (including unregulated investment schemes).
