As part of our regulatory obligation under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000,
before we can introduce you to some investment opportunities we have to check that you qualify as an eligible investor.
This means that you must qualify as either a high net worth individual or as a sophisticated investor.
An ‘Advised Investor’ is someone who has an FCA regulated advisor, perhaps an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA).
This selection is for individuals who have a strong understanding of financial markets/products, have invested in more than one unlisted company in the last two years or have been a member of a business angel syndicate or network for at least six months.
High Net Worth Investor
These investors can be classified by confirming that they have an annual income of £100,000 or more, or they hold net assets to the value of £250,000 or more.
