Why do I have to be an accredited investor to access all investments?

The rapid growth in private equity is sparking debates over the fairness of access to private equity opportunities. Linqto is helping to solve that and make it easy for you, but US law only allows us to primarily serve accredited investors. Under Regulation D Rule 506(b), however, a limited number of non-accredited investors are permitted. The SEC reportedly wants more people to have access to private markets, possibly by making changes to the accreditation rules. Until then, non-accredited investors will have a limited experience on our platform, based on the number of non-accredited seats available for each company.
