Please select one of the following

High Net Worth Individual

Because either

I had, during the financial year immediately preceding the date below, an annual income to the value of £100,000 or more

Or

I held, throughout the financial year immediately preceding the date below, net assets* to the value of £250,000 or more

* Net assets for these purposes do not include (i) the property which is my primary residence, or any loan secured on that residence (ii) any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance within the meaning of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001, or (iii) 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 may be, entitled.)

I declare that I am therefore a certified high net worth individual for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2001. I understand that this means:

(a) I can receive financial promotions that may not have been approved by a person authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority

(c) by signing this statement, I may lose significant rights
(d) I may have no right to complain to either the Financial Conduct Authority or the Financial Ombudsman Scheme;
(e) I may have no right to seek compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme

I am also aware that it is open to me to seek advice from someone who specialises in advising on investments.

Or

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.

* Net assets for these purposes do not include (i) the property which is my primary residence, or any loan secured on that residence (ii) any rights of mine under a qualifying contract of insurance within the meaning of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001, or (iii) 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 may be, entitled.)

I declare that I am therefore a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act (Financial Promotion) Order 2001. I understand that this means:

(b) the content of such financial promotions may not conform to rules issued by the Financial Conduct Authority;
(c) by signing this statement I may lose significant rights;
(d) I may have no right to complain to either of the Financial Conduct Authority or the Financial Ombudsman Scheme

Ordinary (Restricted) Investor

Because both of the following apply

In the preceding twelve months, I have not invested more than 10% of my net assets in non-readily realisable securities.

I undertake that in the following twelve months, I will not invest more than 10% of my net assets* in non-readily realisable securities.

* 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;
(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 may be, entitled.

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.

I agree to Olive Tree Investments keeping a record of these declarations and providing it to the FCA in event it is requested.

I am also aware that it is open to me to seek advice from someone who specialises in advising on investments.
