Exempt Market

Exempt Market

A specialized and disciplined selection committee.

Cape Cove offers a selection of exempt market products which have undergone a rigorous due diligence process by our product review committee.

Exempt market securities do not require the issuer to file prospectus and therefore the due diligence process is essential when selecting products to offer our clients. Even though these products are primarily for accredited and eligible investors, Cape Cove always ensures that these investments are suitable for its clients.

Cape Cove operates as an exempt market dealer to provide its clients with alternative investments that are not correlated with the stock or bond markets. These innovative products have been gaining in popularity in recent years and Cape Cove wants to support its clients as they explore these new opportunities.

EMD-KYP Process

Our “know -your product” (KYP) process for Exempt Issuers and their products is based on a thorough and independent review by our Product Review Committee.

We first start with a preliminary assessment of the following areas:

  • Background checks on the issuer

  • Assessment of the issuer’s track record

  • Verification of claims in offering documents (including marketing material)

  • Various economic and financial stress tests

  • Review of risk factors disclosed in offering

If the results are satisfactory, we continue to a full due diligence where we analyze in detail:

  • The issuer’s corporate structure and governance

  • Review of all financial documents

  • Market assessment

  • Competitive analysis

  • Interview with management team and key employees

  • Technology and/or operations assessment

We also insist that our Issuers provide us with reviews and updates throughout the year. With all the above, we can confidently assess if these products are suitable for our clients.
