What is the process to invest as an entity or under a trust?

To make an investment commitment under the name of an entity in the future, you can add your entity information to your account.

To make an investment commitment under the name of an entity (ie. a trust, company, etc.), you will first need to add it to your account. Please keep in mind that these investment commitments must be funded by a bank account under the corresponding entity. You cannot fund an investment commitment under an entity from your individual bank account. Your entity will also need to be verified, please read the full instructions for this.

How to add an entity to your Netcapital account:
