Accredited Investor

An investor with a net worth of more than $1 million or who has had an annual income of more than $200,000 ($300,000 with a spouse) in each of the past two years. Under Regulation D, accredited investors are exempt from the requirement that no more than 35 investors are allowed to participate in the private placement of a security, company, or hedge fund. As a result, many investment vehicles target high net-worth individuals.

Accredited investor.

An accredited investor is a person or institution that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines as being qualified to invest in unregistered securities, such as privately held corporations, private equity investments, and hedge funds.

The qualification is based on the value of the investor's assets, or in the case of an individual, annual income.

Specifically, to be an accredited investor you must have a net worth of at least $1 million or a current annual income of at least $200,000 with the anticipation you'll earn at least that much next year. If you're married, that amount is increased to $300,000.

Institutions are required to have assets worth $5 million to qualify as accredited investors. The underlying principle is that investors with these assets have the sophistication to understand the risks involved in the investment and can afford to lose the money should the investment fail.
