SUITABILITY FOR RETAIL DISTRIBUTION
Civitas Social Housing PLC currently conducts its affairs so that its Ordinary Shares (the “Shares”) can be recommended by independent financial advisers to retail private investors in accordance with the FCA rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Civitas Social Housing PLC is a UK plc and will be applying for approval as a real estate investment trust and, accordingly, the Shares are excluded securities for the purposes of the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products since they are shares in a real estate investment trust.
GENERAL RISK WARNING:
Please remember that past performance of an investment is not necessarily a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. The market value of the shares of Civitas Social Housing PLC may not reflect the underlying net asset value of the investments held by Civitas Social Housing PLC. Civitas Social Housing PLC is able to borrow to raise further funds for investment purposes if the board of directors and Civitas Housing Advisors Limited consider that it may be commercially advantageous to do so. This is generally described as “gearing”. An investment company which has made investments as a result of gearing may have a more volatile share price as a result; gearing can increase shareholder returns in rising markets but conversely can increase the extent to which the value of the funds attributable to shareholders decreases in falling markets. Tax assumptions may change if the law changes and the value of tax relief (if any) will depend upon your individual circumstances. Investors should consult their own tax advisers in order to understand any applicable tax consequences.
