Nature of BSRT
As a registered collective investment scheme, shares in BSRT are not permitted to be directly offered to the public in Guernsey but may be offered to regulated entities in Guernsey or offered to the public by entities appropriately licensed under the Protection of Investors (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 1987 as amended.
BSRT is not an Authorised Person under the UK Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and accordingly is not registered with the FCA. BSRT will therefore only be suitable for professional or experienced investors, or those who have taken financial advice. Regulatory requirements which may be deemed necessary for the protection of retail or inexperienced investors do not apply to listed funds. By investing in BSRT you will be deemed to be acknowledging that you are a professional or experienced investor or have taken appropriate professional advice and accept the reduced requirements accordingly. You are wholly responsible for ensuring that all aspects of BSRT are acceptable to you. Investment in listed funds may involve special risks that could lead to a loss of all or a substantial portion of such investment. Unless you fully understand and accept the nature of this fund and the potential risks in this fund, you should not invest in BSRT.
The Board of BSRT notes the changes to the FCA rules relating to the restrictions on the retail distribution of unregulated collective investment schemes and close substitutes which came into effect on 1 January 2014. The Company conducts its affairs so that the shares issued by the Company can be promoted by authorised persons to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA’s rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Following the receipt of legal advice, the Board confirms that it conducts the Company’s affairs, and intends to continue to conduct the Company’s affairs, such that the Company would qualify for approval as an investment trust if it were resident and listed in the United Kingdom.
