Accredited Investors

What does it meant to be an Accredited Investor?  This title is one which refers to high-net worth individuals (and some entities) who have the ability to invest in unregistered securities or private placements.  In order to qualify as one, you must meet one of the two following criteria:

  • Earned income that exceeds $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expect to do so for the current year
  • Have a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of your primary residence)

As an Accredited Investor, you may have interests and needs beyond the core planning and investment structures available at most institutions.  We can help! Here are a few points to consider:

  • Tax Planning and Tax-efficient Investment Strategies
  • Estate Planning -  Needs Analysis and Document Creation/Reviews
  • Private Trust Services
  • Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs)
  • Alternative Investments* – Hedge Funds, Private Equity, BDCs, REITs, etc.
  • Securities Based Lending
  • Concentrated Position Strategies
  • Charitable Strategies – Foundations, Trusts, Donor Advised Funds, etc.

*Alternative investments may not be suitable for all investors and involve special risks such as leveraging the investment, potential adverse market forces, regulatory changes and potentially illiquidity. The strategies employed in the management of alternative investments may accelerate the velocity of potential losses.
