IS THE SEC’S ACCREDITED INVESTOR DEFINITION UN – CONSTITUTIONAL?

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate Many have railed against what can be argued is the irrationality of protecting non-accredited investors from themselves, i.e. the accredited investor definition.   The definition was crafted by the SEC back in the early 1980’s as the centerpiece of what has been the most utilized method for companies to raise capital in an offering not registered with the SEC, Regulation D.

By Jonathan B. Wilson CrowdFundBeat Sr. Guest Editor, Partner, Taylor English Duma LLP    As part of the Jumpstart Our Business Start-ups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) Congress mandated that the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) amend its rules for exempt transactions under Regulation A so that certain qualifying issuers would be able to issue up to $50 million in securities under Regulation A in a 12 month period. From its name, Congress and many industry participants thought that this change to Regulation A would make it easier for start-ups to raise funds.
