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:
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
