We are an information business helping to deliver investor information to our members.
As an investor you will be aware that quality information is key to a successful investment strategy.
There are legal restrictions on the distribution of information about investments regulated in the UK under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and its regulations (‘FSMA’). We have been established to invite ‘Eligible Investors’ to view restricted information.
We will also develop information about non-FSMA regulated investments for ‘Experienced Everyday Investors’.
