Important Disclosures

Please familiarise yourself with the following disclosures before investing.

Performance Not Guaranteed

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Any historical returns, expected returns, or probability projections are not guaranteed and may not reflect actual future performance.

High Risk of Loss

All securities involve a high degree of risk and may result in partial or total loss of your investment. Your capital is at risk.

Specific Investment Risk

You should carefully read the Information Memorandum concerning the investment and the underlying asset held, and the associated risks specific to that asset and investment.

Performance Comparisons

The comparisons of historic performance of art, financial assets and commodities are comparisons of historical data which may not be a reliable indicator of the value of any given piece of work. In addition, different investments have differing features including differing risks, differing liquidity, and differing transparency of valuations.

Leverage

The investment may utilise leverage from time to time as required to manage the underlying asset and associated cashflows which may increase the risk profile of the investment compared to a similar un-levered asset.

Underlying Asset Risk

The underlying asset may be art, or another speculative asset class that may be illiquid, hard to value, and have a high risk of loss itself. Please note that art is not an investment instrument covered by the Financial Conduct Authority. The underlying asset may be valued in a currency other than the invested currency and therefore there may be currency exchange risk in addition to the inherent investment risk. Each asset in which you may invest will have risks that are specific to that asset class and indeed that asset itself. You should review all available material carefully before deciding to invest and, if you are unsure about whether the investment is a good decision for you, you should consult with an authorised investment advisor who has experience of the asset class in question.

Liquidity Not Guaranteed

Investments offered by Mintus are illiquid and there is never any guarantee that you will be able to exit your investments on the Secondary Market or at what price an exit (if any) will be achieved. In addition, the timeframes to liquidate the underlying asset and return capital may be extended beyond those anticipated by the manager due to many factors. You should not rely on any specific timeframes for a return of capital and should not enter into any investment if you think you may need to liquidate the investment in the mediumto-long term.

Not a Public Exchange

The Mintus Secondary Market will not be a stock exchange or public securities exchange, there are no market makers, there is no guarantee of liquidity and no guarantee that once launched, the Mintus Secondary Market will continue to operate or remain available to investors. You may not be able to sell your investment easily or without taking a loss.

Forward-Looking Statements Should not be Relied Upon

This website contains certain forward-looking statements that are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "potential," "intend," "expect," "outlook," "seek," "anticipate," "estimate," "approximately," "believe," "could," "project," "predict," or other similar words or expressions. Forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions, discuss future expectations, describe future plans and strategies, or state other forward-looking information. Future events, actions, plans or strategies are inherently uncertain and actual outcomes could differ materially from those set forth or anticipated in any forward-looking statements you receive. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements.

Not a Recommendation, Speculative, and High Risk

Mintus does not make investment recommendations and no communication, through this website or in any other medium should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. Investments in private shares and non-mainstream pooled investments of the kind offered on the Mintus platform are speculative and involve a high degree of risk and those prospective investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest. You should carefully consider the risk warnings and disclosures for the respective fund or investment vehicle set out therein. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and you may not get back the money you originally invest. An investment in a fund, private company or investment vehicle is not the same as a deposit with a banking institution. Please refer to the respective fund documentation for details about potential risks, charges and expenses. In the most sensible investment strategy for investing in private companies, private companies should only be part of your overall investment portfolio. Further, the private company portion of your portfolio may include a balanced portfolio of different private companies. Investments in private companies are highly illiquid and those prospective investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 5 years) should not invest.

No Access to FSCS

Investments are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and your capital is at risk.

No Guarantee of Dividends

There is no guarantee that any company you invest in will pay dividends or other form of income to you.
