The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act immediately revised the net worth test for determining whether an individual investor is an “accredited investor” for purposes of Regulation D and Section 4(6) of the Securities Act of 1933. Specifically, as revised, prospective investors can no longer include the value of their primary residence for purposes of satisfying the $1 million net worth test. Historically, many investors have relied on the value of their homes for purposes of qualifying as an accredited investor. This immediately effective provision applies to offerings that are already in progress, including those that have had initial closings.

On July 21, 2010, President Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law.
