Use of Site information

The information, materials and opinions on this Site (the “Information”) are intended to describe the activities of Rcapital Partners LLP. Although we have used reasonable efforts to obtain and provide information from sources we believe to be reliable, we make no representation that the Information is accurate, reliable or complete. All the Information is subject to change without notice. You must in any event conduct your own due diligence and investigations rather than relying on any of the Information. The investments or services referred to on this Site may not be suitable for everyone. If you have any doubts as to suitability, you should seek advice from an investment adviser.

Rcapital Partners LLP acts for the funds they manage or advise (“Rcapital Funds”) and not for anyone else. They will not act for, advise or be responsible for providing the protections afforded to Rcapital Funds to anyone other than such funds.

Entrepreneurs and others working with Rcapital Partners LLP should be aware of this and should not expect that they will be treated the same as the Rcapital Funds.

Links to other websites

This Site contains links to other websites over which Rcapital Partners LLP has no control. Rcapital Partners LLP is not responsible for any material or information on those websites or for any services or products which may appear on them and shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from the use or receipt of the same. By creating a link to a third party website, Rcapital Partners LLP does not endorse or recommend any material, information, product or service appearing on that website.
You shall not create any hypertext links or deep links between this Site and any other website without our express written consent.

Non-Exclusivity

Please do not send us any confidential or proprietary material as we do not agree to obligations of non-disclosure or non-use of such material. We receive a large number of business plans and other proposals, which may be similar to one another or overlap. We reserve the right to review only those which appear to us to fit our investment criteria from time to time and to reject proposals without giving a reason or returning material sent to us. We are not restricted in any way from pursuing opportunities with others. Rcapital Partners LLP and funds under its management or advice invest in many companies, some of which may compete with one another.

Investors

The Rcapital Funds are not available to members of the general public. Interests in the Rcapital Funds will be offered and sold only pursuant to the offering document relating to such funds and to non-retail investors. This Site does not constitute an offer to participate in any investment. There is no recognised market for dealing in interests in the Rcapital Funds and therefore it may be difficult for an investor to sell an interest in such funds or to obtain reliable information as to their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed.

The Information may relate to unregulated collective investment schemes as defined in the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, and promotion of these schemes may therefore be made only to persons who fall within Article 14 (investment professionals) or Article 22 (high net worth companies etc.) of the FSMA 2000 (Promotion of Collective Investment Schemes) (Exemptions) Order 2001 or to any other person to whom such promotion would be lawful (together “Permitted Persons”). Unless you are a Permitted Person, you should not read or act upon any Information relating to unregulated collective investment schemes.

The investments, services and transactions referred to on this Site may not be appropriate for your specific purposes or circumstances. You are responsible for obtaining your own legal, tax and financial advice before taking any action in relation to such investment, service or transaction; this Site is not intended to supply legal, tax or financial advice, and the Information should not be construed as a recommendation to take any such action.

In particular, participating in the investments, services and transactions referred to on this Site may have tax consequences and it is important to bear in mind that Rcapital Partners LLP does not provide tax advice. The levels and bases of taxation can change. Accordingly, potential investors should consult their own tax advisers before taking any action in relation to any investment, service or transaction referred to on this Site.

Investment performance

If and to the extent that this Site contains information about the performance of investments previously made by Rcapital Funds you should be aware that this information has not been audited or verified by an independent party, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and future investments may not achieve the same level of returns as previous investments. An investment in an Rcapital Fund may carry a high degree of risk. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested. No assurance can be given that the stated investment objectives will be achieved. Changes in rates of foreign exchange may cause the value of the investments to go up or down.

Forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements.
