There Are Four Ways To Qualify As A Wholesale Investor

 There are some considerations on who can participate in our property syndicates. The main consideration is that you must qualify as a “wholesale investor”. A wholesale investor is a term used in the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013, to describe a person (or business) with a good understanding of different investment vehicles and how they work.

Eligible Investor

You can demonstrate you have the requisite experience in buying and selling financial products and are able to make informed decisions about the benefits, risks and values of different investment types. You will understand the type of information you need before making a decision to invest and will be able to assess when you need to know more.  You will need to supply confirmation of certification, which is completed by a lawyer, registered accountant or authorised financial adviser.

Large Investor

Your net assets or consolidated turnover over the past two financial years is $5 million or more.

Investment Activity

You can show that within the past two years you’ve been involved in significant investment activity. This means you have owned a financial portfolio worth at least $1 million, or you have carried out transactions to buy financial products worth $1 million or more. You may also have worked for an investment business within the past ten years, and for at least two years during that time, been involved in investment decision-making.

Investment Business

If you have a professional certification or experience that shows in-depth financial knowledge you could qualify under these criteria.

Our experience to date is that most people are qualifying under the Eligible Investor category. If you have had experience buying and selling property in some way shape or form there is a strong possibility you will qualify.
