    I often see the term "professional and sophisticated investors" applied to people in company announcements and in schemes such as Mayfair Platinum whale fishing outfits.

    I am very sophisticated and also an investor. So, do I qualify for that title.

    Or is there a minimum moiety that gulls need to hand over to an investment adviser.

    the whole point, and you know it, is that the confusion between moneyed and sophisticated is a clever bit of sophistry to confuse the bunnies. And they don't need to hand it over to an adviser; they can do it all themselves. They usually do.

    "Sophisticated investor". What a crock! The $2.5mill can include the PPR. So basically anyone who purchased or inherited a family home in inner-Sydney 20+ years ago is "sophisticated".

    So can I remain an unsophisticated investor and have one of my entities sophisticated.

    I don't want to be sophisticated. It sounds so 2001 and "common".

    Ohhh. I always thought that a fundamental requirement was to an absolute something that rhymes with 'banker'.
    I trust that this term still applies.

    I wasn't going to say anything but I find the comments interesting. There have been many posts in the past complaining about the sophisticated investors taking up lucrative issues which people here could not access. Now you are virtually saying those same sophisticated investors are not very bright or worse. Is there some jealousy involved here? Just think about the opportunities sophisticated investors have taken advantages of. Best to be one rather than not I reckon.

    I guess more about being able to take up offers than those who cant.
    This puts you in the Sophisticated Bracket.
    You can buy sophistication.
