Qualified Purchaser


A qualified purchaser is a very rich person. No, seriously, they're rich. They are considered a sophisticated investor, and must qualify by having one of the following: At least $5M in investments; a family-owned business with at least $5M in investments; a trust sponsored by individuals with at least $5M each; or a corporation that invests for others with at least $25M.
