Under the United States Federal Securities Laws, a company or private fund may not offer or sell securities unless the transaction has been registered with the SEC or an exemption from registration is available.
Certain securities offerings that are exempt from registration may only be offered to, or purchased by, persons who are Accredited Investors.
One principal purpose of the accredited investor concept is to identify persons who can bear the economic risk of investing in these unregistered securities.
An accredited investor is natural person, who has earned more than $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in income, each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year, OR has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary home).
