Only “wholesale clients” can invest in the Fund.
The Corporations Act defines a wholesale client as follows: “A financial product or a financial service is provided to or acquired by a “wholesale client” if it is not provided to or acquired by a person as a retail client”.
If a financial product is not, or a financial service provided to a person does not, relate to general insurance, superannuation or an RSA product, then the product or service is provided to the person as a retail client unless one of the following criteria applies:
Where a financial service is provided to a retail investor via a wholesale intermediary, the retail investor is considered to be the investor, therefore, the underlying investor needs to be identified and the test as to whether the client is wholesale or retail is then applied to the underlying investor. The person who acquires the product or service must be identified for the purposes of satisfying the wholesale client test.
