Which investor profile should I choose?


The Financial Conduct Authority categorises individual investors as either:
  • Certified High Net Worth Individual
  • Self-Certified Sophisticated Investor
  • Restricted Investor
The descriptions of each of these are provided as you go through the registration process.  Select the one that best describes you. 

Investor categorisations also exist for Company and Trust registrations.  Again, descriptions of these are provided as
part of the registration process.
