These are the definitions of an accredited investor:
For the purposes of Sections (a) and (d) above, “financial assets” means: (1) cash, (2) securities, or (3) a contract of insurance, a deposit or an evidence of a deposit that is not a security for the purposes of securities legislation. These financial assets are generally liquid or relatively easy to liquidate. The value of a subscriber’s personal residence is not included in a calculation of financial assets. The calculation of financial assets must exclude “related liabilities”, meaning: (1) liabilities incurred or assumed for the purpose of financing the acquisition or ownership of financial assets, or (2) liabilities that are secured by financial assets.
For the purposes of Section (c) above, “net assets” means all of a subscriber’s total assets minus all of the subscriber’s total liabilities. Accordingly, for the purposes of the net asset test, the calculation of total assets includes the value of a subscriber’s personal residence, and the calculation of total liabilities includes the amount of any liability (such as a mortgage) in respect of the subscriber’s personal residence. Income tax is considered a liability if the obligation to pay it is outstanding at the time of the distribution of the security to the subscriber by the Issuer.
