Definition of Accredited Investor

An “Accredited Investor” is a person who meets requirements regarding income and net worth, based on Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations. This was developed to safeguard investors and provide them with protection.

To be an accredited investor, you need to meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Have an annual income of $200,000, or $300,000 for joint income (in your family), for each of the last two years, with expectations of earning the same or higher income this year.
  • Have a net worth exceeding $1 million, not including the value of your primary home

Our investments are only available to accredited investors. Additionally, in order to invest in one of our deals, you must learn about the risks of investing and have established a relationship with Akras Capital.

If you are in the process of filling out the Investor Application, and don’t know whether you are accredited or a non-accredited “sophisticated investor”, simply select the “I’m Not Sure” option from the drop down answers, and we can explore the answer to this question together when we speak!
