Subscription Agreement

Definition:

When you apply to become a limited partner in a DPP, you have to show that you're worthy. You do that by filling out a form called the subscription agreement. This form asks about your net worth, income, past investments. It will also outline out the risks you take on with the DPP. It's all written in legalese so it's hard to read but it tells you that you can lose your money and that DPPs are risky. So now you know.
