2.1 In consideration of the agreements, representations and warranties hereinafter set forth, and for other good and valuable consideration, receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, it is agreed as set out herein.
2.2 Any agreement to purchase and sell any WiseAlpha Product will be several and not joint on the part of the Note Issuer and any other relevant WiseAlpha Product Issuer that may have acceded to this Agreement.
3.1.1 Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, WiseAlpha Technologies will provide you the opportunity through the Platform:
a) To review Investments that the Note Issuer provides access to through the offer and issue of Notes; and
b) To purchase Notes with a Minimum Initial Purchase Denomination of £100.
3.1.2 The Notes shall be issued pursuant to your agreement to purchase Note(s) on the basis of the terms set out herein and subject always to the Terms and Conditions of the Notes. The purchase price for any Notes you purchase through the Platform will be set at an Offering Price that the Note Issuer determines from time to time of the principal amount of the Notes that you decide to purchase. The Completion Price will be at a price no greater than 0.5% above the Offering Price; otherwise a re-confirmation of the Order will be requested from you.

Once you make a funding commitment within the Platform and, if applicable, have checked the box in relation to the Reinvestment Option, (save as set out above) that commitment is irrevocable regardless of whether the full amount of the Investment to be purchased is funded. If the purchase of the Investment does not close, then the Note Issuer will inform you and release you (and the related funds) from your purchase commitment.
3.1.4 In certain cases the Note Issuer or another party may underwrite any shortfall in orders so that a particular trade for an Investment can be closed. In such circumstances, it will be made clear in the particulars of the trade on the Platform that an underwriter has been identified and that the trade has been underwritten. The terms and conditions relating to any underwriting will be determined by and documented separately by the Note Issuer.
3.2 Other WiseAlpha Products
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, other WiseAlpha Product Issuers that may accede to the Agreement pursuant to clause 18 (Accession) may provide you the opportunity through the Platform to purchase other WiseAlpha Products with a Minimum Initial Purchase Denomination as may be listed on the Invest Page and subject to such terms and conditions of the relevant WiseAlpha Product as separately specified.

Each time you purchase a Note, it will be issued immediately following the closing of the purchase of the Investment that the Note Issuer purchases with the proceeds of your Note. Purchases of Investments generally close within 56 days unless (1) the selling counterparty declines to complete the trade prior to closing, in which case the Note Issuer will release you from your purchase commitment; (2) Investor commitments for the minimum purchase denomination of the related Investment have been received earlier, in which case the issuance of the Note(s) to you will close earlier; or (3) the purchase of the related Investment is cancelled by the Note Issuer for reasons relating to the operation and integrity of the Platform or if there is a change in the circumstances of the Obligor and the relevant Investment and the Note Issuer decides to remove the Investment from the Invest Page. In the event that there are excess orders in relation to the aggregate principal amount of the Investment actually purchased, the Note Issuer may allocate Notes at its discretion amongst the Investors who placed orders for Notes linked to that Investment.
4.2 Other WiseAlpha Products
Each time you purchase a WiseAlpha Product other than the Notes, it will be issued on terms that will be notified to you through the Platform.
5.1.1 The Notes are constituted by the Deed Poll and shall have the terms and conditions specified in the Terms and Conditions of the Notes, as supplemented by the Final Terms relating to the relevant Investment, which are available for you to review upon request to the Note Issuer. The interest rate (or other return), maturity and other terms of the corresponding Investments will be described on the Invest page on the Platform. You understand and acknowledge that the Note Issuer may in its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, vote on any proposed amendments to the underlying Investment. The Note Issuer shall be entitled to engage, pay for and rely on the advice or services of any lawyers, accountants, valuers, surveyors or other experts in relation to any Investment. Any fees payable in relation to any such advice or services shall be for the account of the Investor and are deducted from payments made by the Note Issuer under the Notes.
5.1.2 The Note Issuer will charge the Services Fee, which will be deducted from payments under the Notes when each interest or other payment is received from the Obligor and the monthly rate charged in a given month at 1/12 of the annual Services Fee. If an Obligor misses an interest or other payment, the Services Fee relating to that payment will not be deducted until that payment has been received. The Services Fee covers the Note Issuer’s role in providing intermediary services in relation to the purchasing of the Investment, the issuance of Notes and the ongoing use of the Platform but does not cover the costs of administering the Note issuance programme, which the Note Issuer carries out at no cost to Investors.
5.1.3 All interest, other return, principal repayments and other distributions on Investments will be paid by the Obligor to the Note Issuer and upon receipt by the Note Issuer will be credited to the account of the relevant Investors (after deduction of the Services Fee and any fees and expenses incurred by the Note Issuer as set-out in clause 5.1.1 above including in relation to proposed amendments to the Investment), in each case pursuant to the Terms and Conditions of the Notes. So far as permitted by applicable laws, regulations and the practice of revenue authorities, all interest earned on your Notes will be credited to your account without deducting income tax or corporation tax. It is the responsibility of each Investor to account for any income or corporation tax that may be payable by it. On request by an Investor, the Note Issuer will issue a certificate stating the amount of interest earned by the Investor during the previous financial year. The Note Issuer shall be entitled to provide to HM Revenue & Customs and/or any other revenue authority any and all information requested by such authority relating to payments made to Investors. Upon request the Note Issuer will ensure that funds in your account that are not committed to the purchase of Notes (and in turn by the Note Issuer to Investments) will be transferred to the bank account from which the original monies were transferred. The Note Issuer reserves the right to deduct from any such payment a charge to cover the Note Issuer’s direct costs of the funds transfer.
5.2 Other WiseAlpha Products
Other WiseAlpha Products will be constituted by such terms and conditions as may be listed on the Platform.

In addition, if a subsequent subscription would bring the total value of your subscriptions (including any Notes, any other WiseAlpha Product and any accrued interest, any other return or other unpaid distributions thereon) to an amount equal to or greater than Ten Million Pounds Sterling (£10,000,000), you may not make such an additional subscriptions without the prior consent of WiseAlpha Technologies.
