UK REGULATORY
WARNINGS

No member of the Phoenix group acts or will act for you. In particular, no member of the Phoenix group will advise you or provide any other investment services to you, nor will any member of the Phoenix group be responsible for providing you with the protections afforded to its regulatory clients. No employee of or other person associated with the Phoenix group has the authority to represent otherwise. 

Nothing on this Site excludes or restricts any duty or liability of Phoenix Equity Partners Limited under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, including the FCA rules.

Only persons who have been categorised as a professional client by Phoenix Equity Partners Limited may invest in the funds it manages. To the extent that any part of this Site constitutes an invitation or inducement to invest in a fund managed by Phoenix Equity Partners Limited, that invitation or inducement is directed solely at persons who have been categorised by Phoenix Equity Partners Limited as a professional client for purposes of the FCA rules and no other persons should rely upon it.

The Investments and the services and transactions referred to on this Site may have tax consequences and it is important to bear in mind that the Phoenix group does not provide tax advice. The levels and bases of taxation can change. Investors should consult their own tax advisers in order to understand any applicable tax consequence.

Funds managed by Phoenix Equity Partners Limited and the Phoenix group are not available to the general public. In addition, the funds referred to in this Site are not normally available for distribution to or investment in by US investors.

Foreign-currency-based Investments are subject to fluctuations in exchange rates which may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of any Investment.

The price and value of any Investments and the income, if any, from them can fluctuate and may fall against the investor’s interest. An investor may get back less than the amount invested. Information on past performance, where given, is not necessarily a guide to future performance.

Most of the Investments are not regarded by the UK regulators as 'readily realisable investments' because they are unquoted or because, though they are traded on an exchange, that exchange, like many non-UK exchanges, is not treated by the UK regulators as a recognised or designated investment exchange. There may be no UK recognised market for such Investments and therefore it may be difficult for an investor to sell the Investments or to obtain reliable information as to their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. Similarly, there may be less than three market makers in relation to other Investments traded on a recognised or designated investment exchange and referred to on this Site.

The Phoenix group may at any time have a position or holding in the Investments or a related investment, and may have provided within the previous 12 months, or be currently providing, significant advice or investment services in relation to the Investment concerned or a related investment. The Phoenix group may, to the extent permitted under applicable law, have acted upon or used the information in this Site prior to or immediately following its publication.
