To be considered an accredited investor under Singapore law, you will need to provide to us documents providing evidence of such accreditation for our verification. The documents required will vary depending on the accredited investor type you claim. Generally, they include proof of net income or net assets. You will also need to read through our notification on what it means to be treated as an accredited investor and opt-in (i.e., provide consent) to being treated as one by Fundnel.

In addition to verifying your accredited investor status, we will also need to conduct 'know-your-client' checks on you. This requires you to send us your identification documents for our verification.

These are all mandatory requirements imposed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. We appreciate your cooperation on this.

Once we verify all required documents, you may view deals on our site and invest.


Steps to complete one-time investor verification

Please send across relevant documents from the list below to investor.onboarding@fundnel.com — it shouldn't take more than a few minutes of your time. This one-time process will also unlock access to all deals on Fundnel.com.

Rest assured all information will be kept strictly confidential and accessible within Fundnel only on a need-to-know basis.
