Frequently asked questions

What are sophisticated and professional investors?

Sophisticated investors are individuals that have received a valid Sophisticated Investor certificate from a qualified accountant.

In order to qualify as a Sophisticated Investor, one must either:

  • Have gross personal income over the last 2 years of at least AUD $250k, or
  • Net assets of over AUD $2.5m

Sophisticated Investor Certificates can be issued by qualified accountants in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, UK, Canada or Ireland who have at least 3 years’ practical experience. The qualified accountants must be resident in the same country as the investor. 

Professional investors must have one of the following:

  • a financial services licensee (e.g. AFSL holder); or
  • a body regulated by APRA (other than certain trustees); or 
  • a body registered under the Financial Corporations Act 1974; or 
  • a trustee within the meaning of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 and the fund, trust or scheme has net assets of at least AUD $10m; or 
  • have or control gross assets of at least AUD $10m (including any assets held by an associate or under a trust that the person manages); or 
  • a listed entity, or a related body corporate of a listed entity; or 
  • an exempt public authority; or
  • a body corporate, or an unincorporated body, that: 
    • carries on a business of investment in financial products, interests in land or other investments; and 
    • for those purposes, invests fund received (directly or indirectly) following an offer or invitation to the public; or 
  • a foreign entity that, if established or incorporated in Australia, would be covered by one of the preceding paragraphs. Please provide evidence issued by a foreign government body which is equivalent to one of the above, translated into English by an accredited translator.
What is a HIN?

A HIN, or Holder Identification Number, is a unique number assigned to an investor when they first become a client of a broker. This number is assigned by the ASX, and is visible on any CHESS holding statements sent by the ASX.

What is a CHESS holding statement?

A CHESS statement is a summary of an investor’s holdings, and is sent out at the end of each month if an investor buys or sells securities during the month. This is linked to the ASX’s CHESS system, which is used to record and track investors’ holdings and personal details.

What is a DVP settlement?

A DVP settlement, or delivery-versus-payment, is when shares are delivered to an investor after payment is settled. This is the most common settlement method, and is designed to effectively mitigate risk.

What is a manual/EFT settlement?

An EFT settlement is when an investor transfers payment directly to the company issuing shares, for said company to then directly allocate shares to the investor. While this involves more risk than DVP settlements, some brokers will only operate via manual settlements.

What is a PID?

A PID, or Participant Identification Number, is used to identify organisations involved in the trading process. This is normally used to identify specific brokers, with shares sponsored by brokers also containing the relevant PID.
