Who can invest?
Who can participate in a Rougemont syndicated property investment operated as an Unregulated Collective Investment Scheme ("UCIS")?
Rougemont is regulated by the Financial Services Authority ("FSA") and is authorised to operate and promote UCIS.
In accordance with the strict regulatory framework operated by the FSA, UCIS cannot be promoted to the general public and can only be offered to the following categories of individuals and corporate entities:
- Investment Professionals, Authorised FSA Persons who are defined, according to the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, as having professional experience of participating in UCIS for the purpose of their business.
- Certified Sophisticated Investors, Investors who are self-certified, or who have been certified by an FSA Authorised Person as sufficiently knowledgeable to understand the risks associated with participating in a UCIS and who have signed a requisite Certified Sophisticated Investor declaration form.

Under FSA regulations it is necessary for Rougemont to verify the status of all prospective syndicate investment clients to ensure that they fall within one of the above permitted categories. Amendments to the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and Financial Promotion and Promotion of Collective Investment Schemes Order 2005 have now made it possible for prospective clients to self-certify themselves as either being either a Sophisticated Investor and / or High Net Worth Individual / Company.
Confirmation of prospective clients' investor status must be received by Rougemont in advance of any information or promotional material in respect of investment opportunities being provided.
