Self-certified high net worth investor statement

Self-certified high net worth investor statement

I make this statement so that i can receive promotional communications which are exempt from the restriction on promotion of non-mainstream pooled investments. The exemption relates to certified high net worth investors and i declare that i qualify as such because at least one of the following applies to me:

I had, throughout the financial year immediately preceding the date this certification is accepted, an annual income to the value of £100,000 or more. Annual income for these purposes does not include money withdrawn from my pension savings (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement).

I held, throughout the financial year immediately preceding the date this certification is accepted, net assets to the value of £250,000 or more. Net assets for these purposes do not include:

(A) the property which is my primary residence or any money raised through a loan secured on that property; or

(B) any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance; or

(C) any benefits (in the form of pensions or otherwise) which are payable on the termination of my service or on my death or retirement and to which i am (or my dependants are), or maybe, entitled; or

(D) any withdrawals from my pension savings (except where the withdrawals are used directly for income in retirement).

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-mainstream pooled investments.

B) I have been the director of a company with an annual turnover of at least £1.6M in the last 2 years.
