Investor Accreditation Qualification

While many investors may seek to enter a specific regional center as a participant, they may find that their personal situation prevents them from doing so.

To start, the investor must demonstrate that he or she has a net worth of $800,000 or greater.

This may include cash, real estate, investments, their personal residence, and the like.

The individual must also be able to provide the last five years of tax returns from their home country or at least demonstrate a clear source of funds and path of funds.

The investor and their family must have no basis for ineligibility, which would include

NO criminal record of any serious nature that would prevent a consul from accepting the application after the I-526 has been approved.
All of these issues are normally addressed in the regional center‟s initial investor accreditation questionnaire which must be completed and reviewed by their counsel to ensure entry into the regional center corporate structure.

Investing in a regional center is similar to joining a private club: there are rules and regulations to ensure the success and happiness of all members.

You must also assess your fluency and ability in reviewing extensive legal documents such as securities documents, business, marketing, and economic plans, and other documents which the regional center may offer you to review.
