On August 26, 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted amendments to the “accredited investor” definition in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”) (available here) that update and improve the accredited investor definition. The purpose of the amendments is to better identify investors that have sufficient knowledge and expertise to participate in investment opportunities that do not have the rigorous disclosure and procedural requirements and related investor protections, provided by registration under the Securities Act. The amendments are substantially as proposed by the SEC on December 18, 2019 (see our earlier Client Alert available here).
