Accredited Opportunities - Intro

This section of the web site is designed to further educate accredited and non-accredited investors and to make them aware of opportunities and challenges in the world of private investing. To learn more continue reading below. To register immediately, click here.

Accredited Investors

Most opportunities we deal with, are exclusive to accredited investors. Securities regulations require us to limit access to these opportunities to those people who we understand to be accredited. Thus the requirement of a registration process prior to accessing details on accredited investment opportunities.

What is an Accredited Investor?

In the U.S. for example which is one of the more stringent securities jurisdictions, an "Individual" accredited investor generally has a net worth of $1,000,000 or more, OR made $200,000 or more per year in the immediate preceding two years.

Entities, such as institutions, partnerships, or pension plans, have different standards for accreditation. Each country has its own securities laws and general test for the equivalent of an "Accredited Investor".

For more information try the links below or call us directly AND always seek your own legal/securities advice.

Non-accredited Investors

Some opportunities are not considered “securities” and as such are available to the general public. Many real estate opportunities are an example of non-exclusive investment opportunities. If you are not an accredited investor or are looking for some less expensive investment diversification please visit the Non-Accredited section for real estate and/or other such “non-securities” type investments. You will not be required to register in order to view information about these opportunities.

What’s in it for Stonehenge?

Stonehenge will generally earn a fee for its services and will disclose such as per each individual opportunity. We tend to also invest in the opportunities we discover.
