For more information about self-certification please visit the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) website here. We recommend all Investors - irrespective of their experience - to seek additional advice before making an investment commitment to any of our businesses.
If you don't meet the criteria detailed below, we apologies however we will not be able to discuss our offers with you at this time.
To register, please select the category of investor you fit in below. If you fit into both, you are welcome to choose.
