We are looking to build or buy a list of emails of Accredited Investors of USA.
We are open to receive suggestions about the strategy to follow in order to achieve this data.
To be an accredited investor, an individual must have had earned income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years and "reasonably expects the same for the current year," according to the SEC.
Or, the individual must have a net worth of more than $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse. With the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, this now excludes a primary residence as being eligible as part of an investor's net worth (investors who had existing accredited investments but who now fail the net-worth test without their residence being valued were grandfathered).
The income test cannot be met using one year of an individual's income and the next two years based on joint income with a spouse. The only exception is if a person is married within this period.
The SEC offers an explanatory table to help investors determine if they meet the accredited-investor guidelines.
