Suitability and Concentration of Investments

Registrants should recognize that diversification is an important factor when assessing suitability of investments. The lack of diversification may expose the clients to significant investment risks. Individual investors will be able to invest up to a maximum of 25% on any one small business loan.

Securities regulators will consider investments (either individually or taken together with prior investments) in securities of a single issuer, such as Vault Circle, that represent more than 10% of the investor’s net financial assets as potentially raising suitability concerns due to concentration. Vault Circle will take measures to monitor a client’s total investment in Vault Circle to not exceed thresholds which would result in the investment being unsuitable.

Investment Risks Securities offered through Vault Circle are only suitable for accredited investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the risk associated with private investments. Investing in exempt markets requires high–risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns and long–term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Carefully consider the investment objectives, risk, charges and expenses of any investment product prior to investing.
