Frequently Asked Questions



Accredited Investors

1Who qualifies as an accredited investor?

You are an accredited investor if:

  • Your income for each of the last two years was greater than $200,000, or greater than $300,000 combined with a spouse
  • Your expected income of the current year is greater than $200,000 or $300,000 combined with a spouse
  • Your net worth, excluding the value of your primary residence, is greater than $1 million (with or without your spouse)
  • All of these will remain true for the previous two years and the current year.

Whether or not these numbers are based on individual or joint income must remain consistent, unless the investor is married within the three years. In this case, they may use joint income to satisfy this criteria during the years in which they are married.

2Who qualifies as a non-accredited investor?

Anyone who does not meet the criteria of an accredited investor is a non-accredited investor. This means you are a non-accredited investor if:

  • Your income over the last two years as well as your expected income for the current year is under $200,000 (or under $300,000 combined with your spouse)
  • Your net worth, excluding the value of your primary residence is under $1 million (alone or combined with your spouse’s).

4Can I invest if I am non-accredited?

Yes. You do not need to be accredited to invest. We offer opportunities to non-accredited investors, as well.

5What other entities can be accredited investors?

Other entities like corporations, banks, and partnerships, are able to be accredited investors. Part of it comes down to personal circumstances, but the following criteria serve as a good measure of which entities can be accredited investors:

  • An entity whose equity owners are all accredited investors.
  • A trust who has not been formed solely to purchase securities and whose total assets exceed $5 million. The purchase must also be made by someone who has a good amount of business/finance experience and knowledge.

8What is a K-1?
