Accredited Investors

Accredited investors, or sophisticated investors, are individuals or legal entities with a special status under financial regulation laws. They typically include banks, hedge funds, and other large corporations as well as high-net-worth individuals who have surpassed a certain level of income, wealth and/or financial instrument portfolio size as dictated by relevant financial regulation. Some P2P platforms remain open only for accredited investors or offer special deals or VIP treatment to them.
