Angel Business Club Terms of Service
The Angel Business Club is a member’s club incorporated as a limited partnership (société en commandite simple) in Luxembourg, and is governed by the provisions of the Luxembourg law on commercial companies dated 10 August 1915 as amended (the “1915 Law”). This site does not provide or purport to provide an investment opportunity, investment advice, investment management services of any description or kind. Please review these rules prior to proceeding further. By logging on to the Members area of the site using your email and password you confirm your acceptance of these rules. Nothing contained in this website should be construed as an offer to buy or sell any securities and no advice of whatever nature, financial or otherwise, is given or should be implied. Always seek proper financial advice before taking the decision to become a member of the Club.
The Club's objective is to pool the expertise of the Club members as members of an organization to exchange knowledge on specific business matters. The Club provides a forum for its members to discuss, exchange and negotiate market ideas pertaining to the business of quoted and unquoted entities. The discussion forums, on this site have been provided by the Club. The Club hence is a forum for general discussion between members to discuss the development of unquoted and quoted companies. The members will pay a monthly capital contribution to the Club. The member capital contribution is non-refundable. The capital contributions will be used to cover the costs of running the Club and service providers who themselves render services to quoted and unquoted entities. As remuneration the Club may receive participations in such quoted and unquoted entities. Such participations may result in a free allocation exposure to members via their capital accounts in the Club. Please keep in mind that the Club is unregulated by any financial authority and no advice of whatever nature, financial or otherwise, is given or should be implied.
The Club is not an investment vehicle as the member capital contribution is non-refundable and the Club does not invest funds according to an investment policy.

Only one user account and password per email address is permitted. You will as a registered member be a full member of the Club. Please treat other site members with the same respect that you would expect to receive from them. The Club abides by the EU Data Protection Act in relation to their member's privacy.

The option to receive such emails is user selectable and is selected during the registration process, and can be changed by the user at any time thereafter, by selecting the relevant option in their user profile screen, or by contacting the Club by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. By consenting to this, you also permit partners of the Club operating under a regulated entity for the market in question to market investments and securities to you.
The Club prohibits the publication in any form of its materials in third party websites, social media platforms and any form of unregulated non-compliant public domain unless expressly approved the Club and its advisers. Misuse of Club materials will be taken very seriously.
Please observe that the Club by law is obligated to prevent money laundering and financing of terrorism by complying with governing regulations, recommendations and general guidelines. This invokes supervision and investigation of transactions, which fall under the regulatory definitions. You, as a member, are obliged to participate and reveal all information that is demanded in such investigations. While the Club doesn't prohibit private transactions, we are unable to assist in such transactions using our online platform for regulatory reasons. Abuse may lead to the suspension of your account. All member capital contributions are for membership to the Club. Member capital contribution are used by the Club at its discretion to cover the costs of running the Club and to carry out the activity of business acceleration services in cooperation with certain service providers. Service providers and the Club will receive as remuneration participations in companies.
All member capital contributions are therefore non-refundable.
The Club's custodian Beaufort Asset Clearing retains title of all the underlying participations in companies.
Members may be allocated free contractual entitlements to shares per their membership level on a monthly basis.
Beaufort Asset Clearing Services is the appointed custodian [click here for more information] of the Angel Business Club, and hold the daily updated register of member’s equity entitlements (Beaufort Asset Clearing Services Ltd – UK Financial Conduct Authority Reference Number 485165).
If a member of the Club wishes to terminate their account they need to give one month’s notice in writing to email@example.com. Their account with all equity entitlements (not the ownership) will be offered to existing members at fair value (a pre-emption right) and this process can take up to four further weeks. If at the end of the pre-emption period existing members or the Club have not acquired the equity entitlements the exiting member can request the Club to auction their entitlements - please note that in an auction process the exiting member can choose the price to sell their free entitlements. If the entitlements are still not sold after the auction the exiting member can request the Club to transfer their entitlements into their own name. The Club is not obligated in any way to acquire Member entitlements on closure of an account. All entitlements are issued to members free of charge and the Club acts soley as a nominee for all members.
If an equity entitlement in a Company lists on a recognized or un-recognized stock exchange the member’s entitlement will cease to trade on the internal system and if a member would like to sell their entitlement of a listed stock the member may once per month on the first Monday of each month inform the Club of any sell order request. The Club will first offer the entitlement to existing members (pre-emption right) and if existing members or the Club do not acquire the entitlement the Club will instruct its brokers and the Custodian of the sell order.
The Club will make best efforts to fulfil a members sell order in an orderly fashion so as not to affect detrimentally the price of the Companies stock. All members are responsible for their own tax declarations and payments. The Club expressly does not offer any advice to its members on their personal tax liabilities or declarations. Members are therefore wholly responsible for their own tax declarations be it income tax or capital gain. The Club will provide Members annually an account report detailing any commissions paid and any capital gain realized. Members will hold harmless the Club against any member related tax enquiry and the Club reserves their rights to reveal any payments made to members if requested by any tax authority.
