In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released an amended rule governing the new net worth standard for accredited investors under the Dodd-Frank Act. Under the amended rule, only individuals with net worth amounting to $1 million or more will qualify as accredited investors and can participate in private placements and offerings. This and many other components of the law threaten to send shockwaves through the industry.
In a-two hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and key experts organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion to help you understand the most critical elements of the rule and its potential effects on investment industry as a whole.
