a) Chatham Capital Exchange Pty Ltd (Chatham) is primarily a platform for wholesale, sophisticated and professional investors to directly invest private equity.
Chatham provides a business introduction service in accordance with ASIC Class Order 02/273 (Class Order) which provides an exemption to the disclosure requirements under section 708 of the Corporations Act (Cth) 2001 (Act).
Subscribers to our website,com.au (Website), may come across opportunities in which they would like to invest, however, they may not be considered a ‘Sophisticated’ or ‘Professional’ investor within the meaning of the Act and they would therefore (without the Class Order) be subject to the disclosure requirements of the Act.
The Class Order provides these potential investors and share issuers/sellers with the framework in which they are able to raise private equity without complying with the disclosure requirements under the Act.
We confirm that:
A) we may receive an agreed upon fee for providing the business introduction service; and
B) neither the Website nor Chatham is endorsed or approved by ASIC.
