Do you qualify as a Wholesale or Sophisticated Investor?

Section 708(8) of the Corporations Act (2001) outlines the thresholds in determining if an investor qualifies as "wholesale or sophisticated".

  • A gross income of $250,000 or more per annum in each of the previous two financial years; or
  • Net assets of at least $2.5 million; and
  • A qualified Accountant's certificate not more than two (2) years old confirming the Wholesale Investor status

What is a Wholesale Investor?

A wholesale investor is an individual or entity that meets certain criteria and is therefore exempt from certain regulatory requirements. These requirements are designed to protect retail investors, who are generally considered to be less sophisticated and therefore more vulnerable to investment scams and fraud.

To be considered a wholesale investor in Australia, an individual must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Have net assets of at least $2.5 million AUD;
  • Have a gross income of at least $250,000 AUD per annum for the past two years; or
  • Be investing at least $500,000 AUD in the relevant financial product.

Entities can also be considered wholesale investors if they meet certain criteria, such as having net assets of at least $10 million AUD.

Why Become a Wholesale Investor?

Becoming a wholesale investor can offer a number of benefits, such as access to a wider range of investment opportunities that may not be available to retail investors. Wholesale investors are also often able to negotiate better terms and conditions, as they are considered to be more sophisticated and experienced.

Additionally, wholesale investors are not subject to the same level of regulatory oversight as retail investors, which can provide more flexibility and autonomy in investment decisions.

Risks of Becoming a Wholesale Investor

While there are certainly benefits to becoming a wholesale investor, it is important to note that there are also risks involved. Wholesale investors are generally expected to have a higher level of financial knowledge and experience, and as such, they may not receive the same level of protection as retail investors.

Additionally, some investment opportunities may be riskier than others, and it is important to thoroughly research and evaluate any investment opportunity before committing any funds.


In conclusion, becoming a wholesale investor can offer a number of benefits, including access to a wider range of investment opportunities and more flexibility in investment decisions. However, it is important to carefully evaluate the risks and potential downsides before making any investment decisions.
