Private Investing (Part 3)

This is part three of a three-part content feature on Private Investing. Each month Invest for Better offers a special content feature that may be of interest to our members and our larger network of friends and colleagues.

What are Accredited and Non-Accredited Investors?

An accredited investor is anyone whose income exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 with a spouse) in each of the prior two years and who reasonably expects the same for the current year. Or it is someone who has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). An even higher bar is the Qualified Purchaser, who is an individual or legal entity with at least $5 million or more in investments.

If you do not meet these criteria, then you’re a non-accredited investor. Although many private and alternative investments are limited to accredited investors, there are a growing number of opportunities that are open to both accredited and non-accredited investors.
