According to the DFSA Rule Book, COB Section 2.3.7, an individual can be classified as a professional investor if:

  • The individual has net assets of at least USD 1 million, excluding the value of primary residence. Assets that are indirectly owned can be included in the calculation and:

  • Within the previous two years, the individual is or has been, an employee in a relevant professional position of an authorized firm or a regulated financial institution OR:

  • The individual appears, on reasonable grounds, to have sufficient experience and understanding of relevant financial markets, products or transactions and any associated risks.

In either case, SmartCrowd will need to verify the above information in order to classify you as a professional client.
