FCA regulation of 'non-mainstream pooled investments'
The Company currently conducts its affairs so that the shares issued by the Company can be recommended by Independent Financial Advisers to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's ("FCA") rules in relation to non-mainstream pooled investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
The shares are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares in an investment company, which if it were domiciled in the United Kingdom, would currently qualify as an investment trust.
The Ordinary Shares reflect the performance of the Company’s real estate debt strategy. RECI Ordinary Shares shares offer investors a levered play on the European real estate debt markets and pay a quarterly dividend. The Ordinary Shares are currently listed on the premium segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and are admitted to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.
