The short answer is YES. You have to be an accredited investor to invest in alternative investments such as hedge fund, venture capital, private equity, real estate and private deals.

Vauban specialises in the creation of these types of alternative investment vehicles and accordingly requires that all investors are accredited.

An accredited investor has a strong understanding of the risks associated with alternative investments gained through experience in the sector and/or exceeds a specific net worth or income threshold depending on the regulation of the country they are resident of.
