2.1.1. If you are an individual, be at least 18 years old, and provide us with the identification documentation we request;
2.1.2. If you are not an individual (for example you are a company), provide us with such confirmations of status or other documents as we may require.
2.2. By registering as an Investor, you confirm that:
2.2.1. You are not breaching any requirement of Applicable Law binding on you in the country or state where you are located or resident;
2.2.2. You have read and understood the non-exhaustive risk warnings at clause 10 of these Terms and Conditions as well as those set out on the Platform, and are prepared and able to accept the risks of investing via our Platform;
2.2.3. If you are not an individual (for example, you are a body corporate) you confirm that you have the appropriate internal and any external, including regulatory, if required, authorisation to enter into the Platform Agreements; and
2.2.4. Except as specifically agreed with us, you invest on your own account and not on behalf of any third-party Investor. You confirm that unless we agree otherwise, you are not acting as trustee, broker, investment manager or in any other capacity as representative of a third party.
2.3. Before we accept you as an Investor, you must provide us with certain confirmations of your status and must answer to our satisfaction questions which we put to you to ascertain your knowledge, experience and understanding of risks of investing via our Platform.
2.4. We may, in our discretion, ask further questions or apply other tests in respect of particular Investments.
2.5. It is essential that you provide accurate and truthful information in response to any questions we may ask you and any declarations which we may ask you to give when you register as an Investor.
2.6. Subject to Applicable Law, we may in our discretion refuse to allow you to use the Platform and/or may refuse to make certain Investments available to you and shall not be obliged to give any reasons for our refusal.

3. CATEGORISATION - RETAIL OR PROFESSIONAL CLIENTS
3.1. Unless specifically agreed otherwise, we will categorise you as a retail client for the purposes of FCA Rules.
3.2. Where we specifically agree, and where permitted to do so by FCA Rules, we may categorise you as a professional client. Where we do so, you must inform us of any changes in your circumstances which might affect our categorisation of you.
3.3. Where we reasonably consider it appropriate in accordance with FCA Rules, we may propose to you a different categorisation.
3.4. You may also request a different categorisation. We will consider any request you may make to be categorised in a different way but are not obliged to agree to any change in how we have categorised you.
3.5. We will treat you as a retail client. This means that you will have the highest level of protection under the rules made by the Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA Rules”). You will also have the right to take any complaint which you cannot settle with us to the Financial Ombudsman Service. You may at any time ask us to re-categorise you as a professional client, but it is not our general policy to re-categorise retail clients and we can reject your request if we feel that you do not meet the requirements of a Professional Client. When we refer to the FCA and the FCA Rules, we also mean any regulator which may replace the FCA and the rules it may make to regulate our business.
4. 4. SERVICES PROVIDED VIA PLATFORM
4.1. The Services we provide via the Platform are to enable:
4.1.1. Fundraising Companies to raise funds;
4.1.2. Investors to invest, directly or indirectly, in Investments
4.2. Where you are registered as an Investor, you may view information about Offers available on our Platform.
4.3. The Investments made available to you via the Platform may include:
4.3.1. Nominee structure – shares in the Fundraising Company are held in custody for you by WahedX Nominee in accordance with the terms set out in clause 6.
4.3.2. A direct investment structure – you will be registered directly as shareholder or other relationship with the Fundraising Company or issuer of the Investment; and
4.3.3. Such other investments (which may include funds or collective investment undertakings) as we may specify.
4.4. If you choose to invest, you will be required to enter into one or more Investment Agreements relating to your Investment. If the terms of any Investment Agreement are inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, then the Investment Agreement shall take priority in relation to that Investment.
4.5. Before entry into any Investment, you may be required to answer further questions relating to your investment knowledge and experience and may be required to agree to specific documentation relating to that Investment.
4.6. We will comply with FCA Rules in relation to any information or material posted to the Platform, including taking reasonable care to ensure that it is clear, fair or not misleading. We do not provide any advice on the merits of investing in any Investment made available via the Platform nor do we make any personal recommendation as to investment via the Platform. You should take such relevant advice as is appropriate in your circumstances. If you are unsure of any investment decision you should seek a professional financial adviser.
5. CLIENT MONEY AND INVESTMENTS
5.1. In order to invest via the Platform, you must have deposited sufficient funds, using the payment methods specified on the Platform.
5.2. Funds deposited will be held as Client Money in accordance with FCA Rules including CASS.
5.3. Any amount received on your account (including any dividends or other returns on any Investment) will also be held as Client Money in accordance with CASS.
5.4. Client Money will be held in a segregated account. Unless otherwise specifically agreed, no interest will be paid in respect of Client Money.
5.5. Where Client Money is held for you, we will open a Wallet for you. The Wallet will reflect:
5.5.1. Client Money held for you; and
5.5.2. Investments held by you
5.6. When you agree to a proposal to invest, the amount of Client Money will be blocked in your Wallet, which means that it may not be used for any other purpose or withdrawn unless the Investment does not proceed.
5.7. Where you have agreed to invest and there are insufficient funds in your Wallet to cover the Investment, you must transfer sufficient funds within the time specified in the relevant Investment Proposal. If you fail to do so, we may regard this as a material breach of these Terms and Conditions and may terminate these Terms and Conditions in accordance with clause 14.
6. NOMINEE AND CUSTODY ARRANGEMENTS
6.1. Where we hold shares and other Investments on your behalf, this will be done in accordance with CASS Rules. This will not normally apply if you invest via a direct investment structure in accordance with clause 4.3.2.
6.2. We will identify, record and hold all clients’ Investments separately from any of our own investments and other assets, and in such a way that we can identify the assets at any time.
6.3. Wherever practical to do, the shares and other Investments will be held by WahedX Nominee and where this is the case the Nominee will hold the Shares and other investments as nominee upon trust for the Investor. However, depending on the location of the Fundraising Company, Investments may be held by a third party (including a custodian or depositary) where to do so is consistent with Applicable Law and local market practice. We will decide, depending on Applicable Law and market practice in the relevant jurisdiction, whether your Investments are to be registered or recorded in our name or in the name of the WahedX Nominee or in the name of a Relevant Third Party.
6.4. The legal or regulatory requirements and market practices that apply in each jurisdiction for the separate identification and segregation of the Investments may be different. This may have any of the following consequences:
6.4.1. Investments held by a Relevant Third Party who is subject to insolvency (or any similar proceedings) may not be treated in the same way as they would be if they were held by WahedX or the WahedX Nominee. For example, a Relevant Third Party (or an insolvency practitioner appointed to deal with the assets of the Relevant Third Party) may claim to have a lien or other security interest in respect of the Investments.
6.4.2. Investments held by WahedX or the WahedX Nominee but located in a jurisdiction other than the jurisdiction of WahedX or WahedX Nominee, may not be segregated and separately identifiable in the same way as they would be if they were held in the jurisdiction in of WahedX or WahedX Nominee. This means that, in the event of a failure, the Investments may not be as well protected from claims made on behalf of general creditors.
6.5. Investments held on your behalf may be pooled with the Investments of other clients. We will keep records to show that your Investments are held on your behalf and do not belong to us. You will nevertheless not be registered as the owner of the relevant Investment on the records of the issuer of that Investment. Where there is an un-reconciled shortfall in assets held (for example in the insolvency of a third party holding those assets) you may share proportionately in that shortfall with other clients.
6.6. We will not be liable for any losses that you may suffer should any third party which is not an Affiliate become insolvent, or if any of your assets held by a Relevant Third Party or WahedX Nominee are not adequately protected, unless we have failed to exercise due skill, care and diligence in selecting or retaining that third party.
6.7. Provision of information to, and exercise of rights by Investors shall be in accordance with the relevant Investment Agreement.
7. RESTRICTIONS RELATED TO TRANSACTIONS
7.1. We may, in our discretion, impose daily restrictions on transactions which can be entered into using the Platform, including size limits for transactions or not permitting any transactions on any given day or for any specified period.
8.1. If you are a Consumer you will have a right to cancel your agreement with us as constituted by the Platform Agreements within 14 days of entering into it by giving us notice to the contact details given in clause 23. If you cancel your agreement with us, all funds you have paid will be returned to you provided you have not agreed to make an Investment. This is done by sending WahedX written notice of the cancellation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
8.2. You agree that you will have no right to cancel an Investment once you have agreed the terms of an Investment Agreement.
9. FEES AND CHARGES
9.1. You must pay Fees and Charges in the amount and with the frequency specified in the Fees Schedule and/or any Investment Agreement.
9.2. We may deduct Fees due to us or any third party from any money received in respect of any Investment, money held for you on the Client Money Account or by liquidating any funds that you hold in your Wallet.
9.3. If you have not paid us any amount to us when due following our written reminder you must additionally pay us a late fee at a rate equal to the base rate of the Bank of England plus 2% together with any costs and expenses (including for our internal management time) which we reasonably incur in recovering this amount.
9.4. You should be aware that you may also incur fees and charges in connection with your use of a payment service provider or bank. You should check these with your payment service provider or bank.
9.5. All sums payable under the Platform Agreements are exclusive of value added tax or other applicable sales tax, which shall be added to the sum in question. They also include any stamp duty tax, stamp duty reserve tax or other similar taxes that may be payable on the trading and transfer of Investments.
10.1. Investing via our Platform is inherently risky. You should consider the risks set out in the Risk Warning Notice and in the Offer Materials before deciding to invest or trade via our Platform, acknowledging that the risks as set out therein are designed to provide a point of reference but may not be exhaustive, and that by proceeding to invest, you undertake to us that you have made your own assessment of the risks involved in investing.
10.2. If you invest via our Platform you should ensure that this is part of a diversified portfolio, containing different types of investments with varying characteristics and risks.
10.3. You should carefully consider your own tax position and seek independent appropriate advice on the tax consequences of investing via our Platform.
10.4. We can answer any questions you may have as to the factual and operational aspects of our Platform but at no time will we provide investment, financial, legal or taxation advice to any person. If you need advice as to whether any Investment on our Platform is suitable for your personal circumstances, you should consult an independent personal adviser who is experienced in advising on Investments of this kind.
10.5. Company equity (also called company shares) has the following specific risks:
10.5.1. share prices can go down as well as up – this is particularly so for smaller companies, as the combination of both less shares and less buyers of those shares means the share price can change more rapidly;
10.5.2. dividend growth is not guaranteed, nor are companies obliged to pay a dividend to you as an investor;
10.5.3. companies may go insolvent rendering the shares you hold valueless;
10.5.4. the company’s earnings generally may be volatile; and
10.5.5. for smaller companies, shares may not obtain their full value on sale if there is difficulty finding a buyer for those shares.
10.6. Overseas investments: these have the risk that they are priced in a currency other than pound sterling (this being the currency of your initial investment). If the exchange rate between pound sterling and other overseas currency changes, such that the same value of overseas currency is worth less pounds sterling, this will cause your investment to lose value. Conversely, the opposite may happen, in which case there will be an increase in the value of your investment. Please note that the effect of investing overseas is separate to and in addition to the actual investment itself.
10.7. Investments in emerging markets: have, in addition to the risks involved in investing overseas, significant political, regulatory and economic risks. These may differ in kind and degree from the risks presented by investments in the world’s major markets. These investments have a greater risk of a sudden fall in value, for example if there is difficulty selling them, or as a result of governmental interference.
10.8. Please note that there may be other risks in addition to those outlined above in relation to your investment, and there may be further risks that arise in the future.
10.9. If the Fundraising Company becomes insolvent you may lose some or all of your capital. If you are in any doubt about the contents of the WahedX Platform or any offer document and/or the action you should take, you should immediately consult an independent financial adviser duly authorised under the FSMA (as amended) who specialises in advising on the acquisition of Non-Readily Realisable Securities.
10.10. All listed Investments are medium or long term investments and your capital will not be readily realisable. Please read the risks pages in each of the offer documents in relation to the risks associated with any particular offer.
11. CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
11.1. WahedX will always endeavour to act in your best interests as WahedX's client. However, circumstances can arise where WahedX or one of Maydan's other clients may have some form of interest in business being transacted for you. If this happens or WahedX becomes aware that WahedX’s interests or those of one of WahedX’s other client’s conflict with your interests, WahedX will act in accordance with its Conflicts of Interest policy (a copy of this is available upon request). An example is that we perform services for both Fundraising Companies and Investors.
11.2. Under Applicable Law, we must have in place arrangements with a view to taking all reasonable steps constituting or giving rise to a material risk of damage to the interests of our clients. Details of our conflicts of interest policy are available at our Webpage.
11.3. If a conflict of interest arises, we shall not be obliged to disclose or take into account any information or other matter which comes to our notice or the notice of any Affiliate or any of the employees, directors, agents of us or any Affiliate:
11.3.1. Where we reasonably believe that this would be a breach of any duty of confidentiality owed to such person; or
11.3.2. Which does not come to the actual notice of the individual providing the service in question.
11.4. WahedX has a compliance department which is responsible for ensuring that WahedX’s control structures and procedures are adequate to ensure compliance with all relevant laws, regulations, codes and practices relating to WahedX's business activities. WahedX are committed to operating in the best interests of WahedX's clients and managing conflicts of interest fairly. Where there is a conflict of interests, WahedX will not knowingly deal unless WahedX have taken reasonable steps to ensure fair treatment for its clients.

We will be authorised to act in accordance with any reasonable instructions given to us by any person(s) acting in any legal capacity as your representatives on death, on production by them of appropriate identifying material authorising them to act in this capacity.
