Investment Basics

We’re here to help fans learn about investing in celebrity businesses

What is an Accredited Investor?

Traditionally, an “Accredited Investor” is defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission as someone who meets at least one of the following requirements:

Has an individual net worth, or joint net worth with your spouse exceeding $1 million (excluding the value of one’s primary residence)

Has an income exceeding $200,000 in each of the past two years and expects the same this year

Has an income (with your spouse) exceeding $300,000 in each of the past two years and expects the same this year

Recent updates now expand an Accredited Investor to include “qualified institutional buyers” for natural persons who hold a Series 7, Series 65, and Series 82 licenses, among other favorable conditions. The exact details can be found on the SEC website.

What is a Non-Accredited Investor?

A “Non-Accredited Investor” is any individual or entity that does not meet the definition of an Accredited Investor.

Please note that you do not need to be an Accredited Investor to invest through FanVestor as SEC Regulation Crowdfunding does not require an investor to be Accredited.

What are some advantages of the JOBS act?

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups, better known as the JOBS act went into effect in 2016 and was recently updated in 2021.

The JOBS Act provides several advantages for companies seeking investments through crowdfunding.

Companies can raise up to $5 Million under Reg CF and $75 Million under Reg A+.

The JOBS act provides access to a broader pool of investors.

Possible avoidance of venture capital firms that place short-term returns over long-term growth.

Crowdfunding investors may become loyal customers and brand champions.

Reg CF is a type of crowdfunding offering that allows private companies to raise up to $5 million every 12 months. Reg A+ is a type of offering which allows private companies to raise up to $75 million from the public. Companies looking to raise capital via Reg A+ will first need to file with the SEC and get qualification before launching their offering. The costs associated with a Reg A+ offering are much lower than a traditional IPO and the ongoing disclosure requirements are much less burdensome.
