Are You an Accredited Investor? Find out Here

Generally, you can qualify as an accredited investor on the basis of income criteria, or a net worth criterion.

Income Criteria – Must Meet Both

Do you reasonably expect your income,[1]  from all sources during this year, to exceed $200,000 or, if you are married, the joint income of you and your spouse from all sources during this year to exceed $300,000?

Was your yearly individual income from all sources during each of the last two years in excess of $200,000 or, if you are married, was the joint income of you and your spouse during each of those years in excess of $300,000?

Net Worth Criterion

Is your net worth,[2] including the net worth of your spouse, in excess of $1,000,000 (excluding the value of your primary residence)?  Please remember that your net worth for this question should include the value of any other shares of stock or options held by you and your spouse and any personal property owned by you or your spouse (e.g. furniture, jewelry, other valuables, etc.), but must exclude the value of your primary residence.
