Accredited Investor Qualification

The term varies slightly from country to country, but an ‘accredited investor’ is an investor with a special status under financial regulation laws. Generally, accredited investors include high-net-worth individuals, banks, financial institutions, and other large corporations, who have access to complex and higher-risk investments such as venture capital, hedge funds, and angel investments.

The definition of an accredited investor also varies between countries. In the US, for example, the SEC defines it as follows:

  • An accredited investor must earn income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in 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 residence).
  • Any trust, with total assets in excess of $5 million, not formed to specifically purchase the subject securities, whose purchase is directed by a sophisticated person, or
  • Any entity in which all of the equity owners are accredited investors.
