High Net Worth Individual

An individual whose assets exceed his/her liabilities in value by a large figure. There is no hard-and-fast definition of a high net worth individual, though a net worth in excess of $1 million usually qualifies. The SEC, however, defines a high net worth individual as someone who has at least $750,000 under management or whom an investment adviser believes to have a net worth of $1.5 million or more. Many investment vehicles target high net worth individuals because they have more money to invest. Likewise, high net worth individuals are sometimes the only individuals (as opposed to organizations) who are permitted to invest in some vehicles.
