RMF’s Founding Partner Michael L. Faltischek Quoted in Newsday article titled “SEC expands definition of who can be accredited investor for private offerings.”

The Securities and Exchange Commission has made a key rule change that expands the definition of who qualifies as an accredited investor for private offerings.

The rule change looks beyond just income thresholds and takes into account other measures of financial sophistication, adding new categories of individuals that could qualify as accredited investors including knowledgeable employees of private funds and those holding certain professional certifications.
