Accredited Investor

These investors are permitted to invest in several types of high-risk investments such as angel investments, hedge funds and limited partnerships. An accredited investor designation requires that an individual have a minimum net worth of $1 million or more. For persons who are single, they may become accredited investors if they have earned a minimum of $200,000 in preceding years. If the individual is married, they need to have earned a minimum of $300,000 in the previous 24 months.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is mandated with deciding which investors are allowed to invest in certain kinds of investments with high risk. In summary, accredited investors must fulfil at least one of three conditions: a) have a net worth that is in excess of $1 million; b) have earned a net income, for the past two fiscal years, in excess of $200,000 in the previous two fiscal years and expect that they will earn as much in the coming year; or c) have a joint income (with their spouse) of $300,000 for the previous two years, and expect to earn as much in the coming year.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in December, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
