Are you an accredited investor?
By accessing www.tacitacapital.com/tci-premia and any pages herein (the “site”), you agree to be bound by the below terms and conditions as well as any future revisions Tacita Capital Inc. (“Tacita Capital”) may make in its discretion. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions below, do not access this site, or any pages herein.
Please review the entire terms and conditions below:
Units of the Funds are offered to qualified investors resident in select provinces and territories of Canada (the “Offering Jurisdictions”) pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements of the securities laws in the Offering Jurisdictions. Qualified investors must rely on one of the following exemptions available to purchase units of the funds:
1. ACCREDITED INVESTOR EXEMPTION:
The Funds will accept subscriptions from investors who meet the criteria to be considered an “accredited investor” under NI 45-106 (the “Accredited Investor Exemption”). If you meet the definition “accredited investor”, you may invest a minimum of $10,000.
Some of the common ways an individual investor can qualify as an Accredited Investor are:
- an individual who, either alone or with a spouse, beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, financial assets having an aggregate realizable value that before taxes, but net of any related liabilities, exceeds $1,000,000;
- an individual whose net income before taxes exceeded $200,000 in each of the 2 most recent calendar years or whose net income before taxes combined with that of a spouse exceeded $300,000 in each of the 2 most recent calendar years and who, in either case, reasonably expects to exceed that net income level in the current calendar year;
- an individual who, either alone or with a spouse, has net assets of at least $5,000,000.
2. OFFERING MEMORANDUM EXEMPTION
For residents in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, purchasing Units pursuant to the offering memorandum exemption under NI 45-106 (the “Offering Memorandum Exemption”), there is no regulatory minimum investment amount required but the Manager has established a minimum initial investment of $10,000.
3. MINIMUM AMOUNT EXEMPTION:
Other than in connection with the Accredited Investor Exemption and the Offering Memorandum Exemption, the minimum investment in the Fund for a non-individual resident in the Offering Jurisdictions is subject to meeting the $150,000 minimum amount investment threshold under NI 45-106 (the “Minimum Amount Exemption”).
The Investor hereby certifies that he/she is an “Accredited Investor” within the meaning of National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus and Registration Exemptions (“NI 45-106”) by virtue of satisfying the criterion indicated below.
The lettering of the categories listed below corresponds to the most commonly used categories of the definition of “accredited investor” in NI 45-106.
