Are you an investor? Are you looking for an opportunity?

investor opportunities with Leading HomesWe would love to be able to outline the many opportunities and projects for anyone looking to become an investor with Leading Homes.  Sadly we can’t.  We are restricted by PS13/3 of the FCA act which controls unregulated collective investment schemes. Therefore we can’t openly show the various opportunities. These have to be kept behind a restricted wall on the site.  Login  

Loans

Please email us at investor@leadinghomes.co.uk and we will be happy to discuss any of our opportunities where a straight loan for a fixed return is suitable. The returns we offer far exceed that of any UK bank or building society. These fall outside of the FCA regulations. These do not require further forms to be completed. However if you qualify as a HNWI or Sophisticated Investor then we still encourage you to complete these forms.

Other Opportunities

We can only discuss these opportunities with you if you are either a High Net Worth Individual (HNWI) or a Sophisticated Investor. If you would like to know what it all means click here.

How do you qualify as a HNWI or Sophisticated investor?

A certified HNWI

You confirm that you either:
• Have a net income in excess of £100,000 per annum or
• Have net assets in excess of £250,000 beyond your pension fund assets and your private residence

A certified Sophisticated Investor

You confirm that have been one of the following:
• A director of a company turning over at least £1 million within the last two years
• Have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the last two years
• A member of a network or syndicate of business angels for at least six months
• Have worked in the past two years in a professional capacity in the private equity sector or in the provision of finance for small and medium enterprises

Contact Us

If you are interested in talking to us and you feel that you qualify as either a HNWI or a Sophisticated Investor, please contact us at investor@leadinghomes.co.uk and we will get back to you. We will need you to complete a simple form confirming the above.

FCA PS13/3 HNWI/Sophisticated Investor – What does it all mean?

Often in property acronyms and phrases are bandied around by people, yet the majority of people do not understand what they mean. FCA PS13/3 is a law that people need to have a grasp of to avoid breaking it!

The FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) introduced restrictions on the retail distribution of unregulated collective investment schemes and close substitutes in 2013 – what that means in plain English for property people is that in order to promote an investment opportunity to a third party you must ensure that they are either a HNWI or a Sophisticated Investor. This was introduced to protect members of the public from being sold opportunities which might lose them money. By understanding the risks involved it is hoped that people enter into these opportunities with their eyes wide open.

These checks must run every 12 months in order to comply with PS13/3 and keep evidence. We need to ensure our investors are still compliant.

Which type of funding comes under the PS13/3 rules?

A straight loan is outside of PS13/3 so it is perfectly possible to make a post on a website asking for a loan to fund a purchase of a property for example. What you can’t do is make a post saying that you have a great deal and any investor will get 50% of the profits return for example. In other words loans are fine, but joint ventures (JVs) are not.

Before you invest in great opportunities, like we offer at Leading Homes for example, you should ensure that you are self-certified as either a HNWI or Sophisticated Investor, as defined by the FCA under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA)

If in any doubt, please contact a suitably qualified individual to advise. We are not qualified to give advice here on investing or any legal matter.
