Accredited Investors Only
Private Transactions offered by Pre IPO Swap are for Accredited Investors only.
In the United States, to be considered an accredited investor, one must have a net worth of at least $1,000,000, excluding the value of one's primary residence, or have income at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 combined income if married) and have the expectation to make the same amount this year. The term "accredited investor" is defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as:
- a bank, insurance company, registered investment company, business development company, or small business investment company;
- an employee benefit plan, within the meaning of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, if a bank, insurance company, or registered investment adviser makes the investment decisions, or if the plan has total assets in excess of $5 million;
- a charitable organization, corporation, or partnership with assets exceeding $5 million;
- a director, executive officer, or general partner of the company selling the securities;
- a business in which all the equity owners are accredited investors;
- a natural person who has individual net worth, or joint net worth with the person's spouse, that exceeds $1 million at the time of the purchase, or has assets under management of $1 million or above, excluding the value of the individual's primary residence;
- a natural person with income exceeding $200,000 in each of the two most recent years or joint income with a spouse exceeding $300,000 for those years and a reasonable expectation of the same income level in the current year; or
- a trust with assets in excess of $5 million, not formed to acquire the securities offered, whose purchases a sophisticated person makes."

What it means to invest in Pre IPO?
Let's cut to the chase. Pre IPO is private equity. It's a private placement. The difference is with traditional (most) private equity - Pre IPO companies are about to go public, that means they have acheived the size worthy of an IPO filing. They can be called 'Unicorns' but this is just a buzz word. The reality is that these companies are late stage meaning they have huge growth, lots of employees, and a business that investors want. They have chosen not to go public for various reasons - in the case of Palantir, some have said it's because of security concerns. In any case - Pre IPO investing is the middle ground where there is a healthy mix of risk and reward. These aren't startups - and they aren't blue chips. Not all are going to be the next Facebook - and here's the rub. How do investors know what will be Facebook and what will be nothing? No one knows, but in this arena you at least have the chance to invest in the next Facebook, and if you only make a 975% return in Twitter you haven't done so badly. Investing in Pre IPO is not for everyone - but if you do investing and want higher returns than the normal index or manager will provide - it certainly provides a unique opportunity.
THIS IS HIGH RISK INVESTING - WITH ANY TYPE OF HIGH RETURNS ONE SHOULD EXPECT THERE TO BE EQUALLY HIGH RISK.
