“[Include the following 2 paragraphs only if you are permitted by section 17(1)(a) of the Act to provide a personalised discretionary investment management service (DIMS).]
“I am permitted under the Financial Advisers Act 2008 to offer a personalised discretionary investment management service (DIMS). Under a personalised DIMS, I make decisions about how to invest your money in financial products on your behalf, based on an investment strategy that is designed to take account of your particular financial situation and goals. I [charge/do not charge] fees for this service. You will hold the financial products [in your own name/through a custodian].
“Investing through a personalised DIMS has risks. Under this service you give up [control/some control] over investment decisions, and rely on my decisions. The value of your financial products invested in through a personalised DIMS could go down as well as up. It is possible you will not achieve the returns you expect and will not receive all your investment back. Different personalised investment strategies have different levels of risks relating to the financial products being invested in and their management.”
