As a new investment opportunity, Raptor believes that every prospective Bondholder should have as much information as possible on the risks associated with their potential investment. To help prospective investors make a clear decision, we have compiled six of the key risks to potential investments.
1. Your Capital Is At Risk
With investment in our bond your capital is at risk. The value of your investment can go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.
2. No FSCS protection
The bonds that you will invest in are issued by Raptor, which is unregulated as are the bonds. Therefore, losses incurred by the would not be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). Additionally, if Raptor ceases to exist or goes into liquidation you would not be able to put in a complaint through the FSCS to be compensated for loss of capital and interest.
3. Bonds will be difficult to transfer
The bonds you will invest in are non-readily realisable investments and are not listed. Investment in the Raptor bond must be viewed as a long-term investment. It may be possible for the bonds to be sold but it may be difficult to sell the bonds held through an IFISA.
Diversification means spreading your investments across different asset classes and sectors. All investments in Raptor will be in bonds, you should be aware that all monies invested will be in the same sector and through the same asset class. You should consider spreading your investment risk and seek independent advice when you are not sure if an investment is suitable. You are not able to invest more than 10% of your net assets in the Raptor bond unless you are a high net worth investor, a certified sophisticated investor or a self-certified sophisticated investor.
5. Past performance
Past performance of financing is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Past events, experience derived from these, or assumptions derived from any of these, do not predetermine the future.
6. The Company’s business strategy
Raptor’s business plan is based on assumptions about market performance and predicted future trading of its current and proposed business activities. The Company considers these assumptions to be reasonable, but it is inherently subject to variation and uncertainty. There is no certainty that all or any of its business plan will be fulfilled, that the outcome of the Company’s strategy will be as anticipated or that The Company will achieve the required level of profitability or sufficient cash flow to achieve its stated objectives.
