Important Risks and Commitments statement
YOUR CAPITAL IS AT RISK. Investors and lenders should be aware that there are risks to all forms of investing and corporate lending, including bonds, loan notes and debentures, and you may be unable to recover your loan or investment should something go wrong.
Potential investors and lenders should always read all the available ‘Financial Promotions’ on any lending or equity investment opportunity in their entirety, with particular attention to the ‘Risk Factor’ sections, before deciding to lend or invest. These investments are NOT covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and you may not have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
If you are in any doubt about the action you should take or the contents of any of the Financial Promotion received, you should contact your stockbroker, solicitor, accountant, bank manager or other professional adviser authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, who specialises in advising on bonds, shares and other securities, including unlisted securities or investment.
Investing in start-up and growth companies involves a high degree of risk. You could lose some or all the money you invest, and you must be prepared to accept that risk.
It is significantly more likely that you could lose your invested capital in any one company than make a profit from it. These investments can be subject to sudden and large falls in value dependent upon the performance of the underlying company. The risk/reward ratio of investing in very small companies and start-ups is increased as the risk of failure is higher. Do not invest unless you have judiciously thought about whether you can afford to lose the money lent or invested, and whether it is right for you. A more diversified portfolio can, to some extent mitigate the risk of losing some or all your money.
