Frequently Asked Questions

CAPITAL AT RISK. There are risks to all forms of investing, particularly in unregulated, complex, non-readily realisable and/or non-transferrable securities like bonds, loan notes and unquoted equity investments. Forecasts are not guarantees and performance may vary. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change. These investments are NOT covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and clients will NOT have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). All investors should seek independent professional advice before deciding to invest. Please read our risk warning before deciding to invest.

The loan notes are non-transferable and cannot be sold or redeemed before maturity and therefore are considered high risk. For this reason we can only introduce our investment opportunities to exempt investors like self certified High Net Worth Individuals and Self certified Sophisticated Investors who have also passed knowledge and experience assessment test and fully understand risks associated with all forms of investing.

Loan Note Questions

A Loan Note is a professionally structured financial instrument; it is a legal contract that specifies the duration of the loan, when the loan is to be repaid and the interest payable.
Loan Notes are becoming an increasingly common part of the smaller company finance landscape, taking over the role previously held by banks and investment houses. We have systems and controls in place to ensure all investment opportunities we introduce are checked, verified, approved and monitored by authorised firms, to ensure the risks are kept as low as possible. However, this does NOT mean that your investment is secure and the returns are guaranteed and, as with any investment, there is always a possibility that you may not be able to recover part or all of the capital invested. This is why we always encourage all potential investors to read all available Financial Promotions and consider them in the light of the specific risk factors contained within. Investors are also encouraged to conduct their own due diligence and business analysis on investment opportunities they consider for investment.
Under these circumstances, the Loan Notes would form part of your estate and the executors or administrators of your estate would hold title to the Loan Notes. Your executors would hold the Loan Notes until their redemption or, in such exceptional circumstances, the issuer might be prepared to redeem them early.
