Do I have to be an accredited investor?

Yes. As a US-based company, we are bound by regulations set by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) which require all investors in private equity to be verified as accredited. The SEC defines an accredited investor as someone who is qualified to invest in complex or sophisticated securities that are not closely regulated. The purpose of the accredited investor designation is to protect retail investors from losses that can result from unregulated investments.

In the United States, an accredited investor is someone who has earned $200,000 in gross income the last two years ($300,000 if filing with a spouse or partner), someone who has a net worth of $1,000,000 aside from their primary residence, or someone who holds a valid FINRA Series 7, 65, or 82 license.

International members will also need to be verified as an accredited investor via the requirements set by their governing bodies. Our team can work with you to determine your eligibility based on your country.
