What is an Accredited Investor?

Under the Securities Act of 1933, a company that offers or sells its securities must register the securities with the SEC or find an exemption from the registration requirements. The Act provides companies with a number of exemptions. For some of the exemptions, such as rules 505 and 506 of Regulation D, a company may sell its securities to what are known as “accredited investors.” The federal securities laws define the term accredited investor in Rule 501 of Regulation D as:

  • A net worth of at least $1 million (excluding the value of their primary residence), or
  • An earned income for the past two years of at least $200,000 (or $300,000 with their spouse, or equivalent).
  • “Certain professional certifications, designations or credentials or other credentials issued by an accredited educational institution, which the SEC may designate from time to time by order,” including holders in good standing of the FINRA administered licenses: Series 7, Series 65, and Series 82.

For more information about the SEC’s registration requirements and common exemptions, read our brochure, Q&A: Small Business & the SEC. http://www.sec.gov/answers/accred.htm
