What is classification?

Another requirement introduced alongside the appropriateness test is to classify investors according to level of experience in investing. Investors will be asked to identify as one of three types of investors (restricted, sophisticated or high-net worth), as defined by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This is required before taking the appropriateness test, but has no bearing on the test and does not make any investor exempt from taking the test.
