Utilizing a database of investor leads that are Sophisticated Investors

Globally there are exemptions for raising capital for a myriad of monikers to describe sophisticated investors. The most common names are qualified investors, accredited investors, professional investors, high net worth investors, and of course sophisticated investors.

What are the benefits of a Sophisticated Investor Database for raising capital as a business (SME)?

  • Small businesses can raise any amount of funds from sophisticated investors
  • Small businesses do not have to go through the costly prospectus documents required, however, most jurisdictions require firms to report the sophisticated investment
  • Sophisticated Investors are often “angel investors” for businesses
  • As a firm doing an IPO offering, having a third party verified list of sophisticated investors prequalifies the investor before marketing to them
  • Sophisticated investors can receive promotions and marketing exempt of most rules with regard to solicitation
  • Sophisticated Investors can invest in funds, Collective Investment Schemes, crowd funding and other such investment concepts without having the cost of being regulated

In most jurisdictions, the certification can occur at the time of the subscription or purchase of the securities, however, it is often “second guessed” by regulators when firms “raising the money” do their own “qualifying” of investors. This can lead to offerings falling foul of the exemption. However, a third party verification system is infallible with this regard and offers a convenient method for Unregulated Collective Investment Schemes, Small Private Offerings, Public Offerings, Funds, and Debt offerings such as bonds and debentures to “pre-qualify” existing databases by working with a third party firm to vet their data and produce unbiased results.

The only firm that privately offers third party verification of investor information and supplies certificates for signing by the investor ishttp://www.sophisticatedinvestorregister.com.

As a service provider to the financial markets one can subscribe to the service to access:

  • Weekly new sophisticated investors (limit of 500 per week)
  • Data cleaning and qualification of existing databases of shareholders
  • Email distribution and SMS alerts to opt-in members

The sophisticated investor register maintains that the certification is always made within “12 months” of the investments, and assists investors in renewing the certificates. The documentation is generally sent to the local jurisdiction for further verification and admission of the investor to “government” databases that further verify the authenticity of the sophisticated investor register.

If you are a company interested in raising capital, you should consider subscribing to the sophisticated investor register today!

*FSE Listings: Note of warning, we have no affiliation to a group misrepresenting the FSE Listings brand called Julius Csurgo, Global Regency, Merger Law Associates, Frankfurt Listings, and other such names. As far as our research has revealed, they appear to charge more and allegedly are slower than our firm at listing, in addition, we are not even sure they can list firms. Several firms have complained they were listed and didn’t even get to trade or clear properly using listings services and contacted us believing us to be the same firm. We believe that in this matter, one should be careful of all firms who do not have the representative Mark Bragg contact you. Our firm listed several companies in April and expects to do this again in May, with over 100 listed to date as a consortium. We are the leaders, competition is only healthy if they are not misrepresenting a brand, therefore, we bring this to your immediate attention that we have no affiliation to these firms. We are the only FSE Listings Inc, contact Mark Bragg today.
