Is Amyma responsible for the performance of my investment that Amyma has introduced me to?
No. Amyma acts only as the introducer and the investment opportunities we introduce to come from completely independent investment providers. The performance and responsibilities of the investments lie solely with the investment providers.
Can I come and meet my agent at Amyma?

How are the investments introduced by Amyma so much higher yield than mainstream investments?
The investments that Amyma introduces clients to are categorised as high risk. Amongst other points, the following reasons apply:
- investors are typically investing into one company which is higher risk compared to diversified investments;
- the investments are often totally illiquid or have very low liquidity which makes them higher risk. This means that you are typically fixed into the investment for the duration of the term without the ability to get your capital back sooner if you need to;
- the structure of the investments are often less structured than large funds and other investment structures that large financial institutions offer so there are less checks that are done before the investment is available and on an ongoing basis;
- Some of the companies that you are investing into are new and have little to no track record which makes them high risk too.
These factors are often combined at the same time making the investment high risk.

How does Amyma decide on what investments it introduces to?
Amyma is always looking for good introductions for its clients and it is often approached by companies seeking investments to help them finding High Net Worth and Sophisticated Investors who are interested in knowing about higher yield investments. Amyma introduces to investments that are listed securities, portfolios managed by FCA regulated firms, or investments that have had their Information Memorandum (IM) signed off under section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 by the FCA authorised and regulated firm. An IM is the document that is produced by a company seeking investment and must contain all of the information about the company, investment opportunity, risks factors as well as security features and returns. All potential investors are encouraged to read IMs before making an investment decision.
We also perform our internal basic due diligence on new investment opportunities and meet the people behind the investment opportunity.
Can I invest directly, without Amyma’s involvement?
Yes! Every investment is ultimately bought directly so as soon as you feel ready to invest, you can do so. Amyma has contracts with investment providers to be paid a commission after you complete your purchase.
Am I going to feel pressured to purchase once I am in Amyma’s database?
No. Once your agent has understood as much as possible about what you are looking for, you are only contacted from time to time to see if you are looking to make any investments. Amyma has been an introducing agent since July 2016 and we have never had any complaints. Amyma intends to continue this way.
