Nothing on this Site constitutes, or is intended to constitute, an offer, solicitation, invitation or inducement to buy or sell investments of any description in any jurisdiction or to engage in any other investment activity or to be considered to amount to “marketing” as that term is defined under the EU Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive. Furthermore, nothing on this Site shall constitute financial, investment, tax or any other type of advice or recommendation and should not be relied upon as such. You should not rely on any statements set out in this Site in making an investment or other decision but instead seek your own independent legal, regulatory, investment and tax advice.
This Site is directed only at (i) persons who would be capable of being classified as professional clients under the EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive; (ii) persons falling within any of the categories of “investment professionals” as defined in Article 14(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Promotion of Collective Investment Schemes) (Exemptions) Order 2001, as amended (the “CIS Order”) and Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) order 2003, as amended (the “FPO”); (iii) persons falling within any of the categories of “high-net-worth entities” as described in Article 22(2) of the CIS Order and Article 49(2) of the FPO; or (iv) any other person to whom it may otherwise lawfully be communicated (all such persons together being referred to as “Exempt Persons“). Any investment or investment activity to which this site relates is available only to Exempt Persons and will be engaged in only with Exempt Persons. Accordingly, persons who are not Exempt Persons (in particular, persons who would be classified as “retail clients” under the FCA rules) must not rely on this Site.
In the case of persons outside the United Kingdom, this Site is also only directed at such persons to the extent that it may be lawfully accessed by them without (i) breaching any law or regulation in any other jurisdiction or (ii) imposing any requirement on EEP or any other person to be licensed, registered or approved or to comply with any other regulatory requirements in any other jurisdiction. Persons in respect of whom such prohibitions or requirements apply must not access this Site.
EEP does not and will not act for you. In particular, EEP does not and will not advise you or provide any other investment services to you and will not be responsible for providing you with the protections afforded to its regulatory clients. No employee of, or other person associated with, EEP has the authority to represent otherwise.
To the extent applicable, you are responsible for compliance with local laws or regulations relevant when accessing or using the information on this Site from, or in, a jurisdiction other than the UK.
Nothing on this Site excludes or restricts any duty or liability of EEP under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended), FCA rules or any relevant (directly effective) European Union Regulation.
