Professional client is a client who possesses the experience, knowledge and expertise to make its own investment decisions and properly assess the risks that it incurs. In order to be considered to be professional client, the client must comply with the following criteria:
Valid only if an adequate assessment of the expertise, experience and knowledge of the client, undertaken by the investment firm, gives reasonable assurance, in light of the nature of the transactions or services envisaged, that the client is capable of making investment decisions and understanding the risks involved.
The fitness test applied to managers and directors of entities licensed under Directives in the financial field could be regarded as an example of the assessment of expertise and knowledge. In the case of small entities, the person subject to that assessment shall be the person authorised to carry out transactions on behalf of the entity.
In the course of that assessment, as a minimum, two of the following criteria shall be satisfied: — the client has carried out transactions, in significant size, on the relevant market at an average frequency of 10 per quarter over the previous four quarters, — the size of the client’s financial instrument portfolio, defined as including cash deposits and financial instruments exceeds EUR 500 000, — the client works or has worked in the financial sector for at least one year in a professional position, which requires knowledge of the transactions or services envisaged.
This is a distinct category that can be applied to a subset of Professional clients. Eligible counterparties receive the least investor protection.
