I want to join a website where they allow only accredited investors to participate in investments that they manage.
I am not an accredited investor. However, in the past, I worked for the company and acquired stock in the company itself. Does me holding stock in the company make me an accredited investor with this company in particular?
I'm guessing probably not, but its nice to ask and cover my bases.
Without knowing the specifics it is hard to give you a specific answer, but most likely the answer is no. If they limit the participation in the site to accredited investors, this is probably not something they are doing willingly, but rather imposed by regulators. Acredited investors have access to instruments that don't have the same level of regulatory protection & scrutiny as those offered to the general public, and are defined under Regulation D.
Examples of such securities are 144A Shares, or hedgefunds.
