Suitable and appropriate product offering
Costaholdings is required to safeguard investors from taking on excessive risk by assessing their individual situations.
As part of being regulated, Costaholdings must ensure that investors are aware of the risks of investing on Costaholdings, and that their financial situation allows them to bear these risks. To meet this requirement, we ask investors to complete an assessment that checks whether our products fit their expectations and goals, and are appropriate for their knowledge and experience.
The outcome of this assessment determines which products and services will be available to the investor. Investing on Costaholdings isn’t risk-free, so our offering, for example, wouldn’t be considered suitable for investors who wish to only preserve capital.
