All persons who register as an 'investor' on this Website should read carefully the following warnings before making any investment.
All investment products carry risks. The relevant webpages and documents will cover risks specific to an individual offer. Please bear in mind the following general risks involved when investing through this Website:
YOUR PERSONAL DECISION TO INVESTA decision to invest in a company is a personal decision by you and no responsibility for the consequences of that decision is accepted by either Godwin or ShareIn or by any of its partners, directors, agents, employees or other members. To invest through this Website you need to understand the following important risks:
YOU ARE NOT COVERED BY THE FINANCIAL SERVICES COMPENSATION SCHEMEWhen your capital is invested it is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Before it is invested or once the proceeds of investments are returned, your money will be held by the money recipient in a client account and subject to separate protections applicable to credit institutions and banks.
LOSS OF INVESTMENTInvestments, whether in new or existing businesses, carry high risks as well as the possibility of high rewards. Accordingly, each investor should consider very carefully whether such investments are suitable in the light of their own personal circumstances, commitments and available financial resources. Engaging in any investment activity may expose you to a significant risk of losing all of your investment. If a company fails, it is likely that you may lose all, or part, of your initial investment and receive no outstanding or future interest payments. In such circumstances neither the company nor Godwin nor ShareIn will pay you back your investment.
Most of the companies in which Godwin invest are new companies with limited if any track record. These companies will provide information such as their business plan and financial forecasts. Please be warned that these documents are not guarantees that the relevant company can achieve what it is hoping to do. Equally the information provided may state certain facts and statements, and again please be warned that neither Godwin nor ShareIn are responsible for checking the accuracy of these facts and statements, which may not always prove to be true or complete.
