What documents are needed to verify accreditation?

In accordance with regulations, Wunder must verify that investors are accredited before a new investment can be issued.

Individual Investors

Whether investors are accredited based on assets or income, they may provide proof of accreditation by uploading documents or by having a trusted third party (lawyer, CPA, Investment Advisor, or Broker) confirm they are accredited. Within Wunder's investment process, there is an accreditation verification step.

If you're accredited based on income, you can upload a W2, 1040, or any other government or company form containing salary for the past 2 years. You could also upload a letter from your lawyer, accountant, investment advisor, or investment broker, attesting to having seen information that you have earned more than $200,000 in the past two years, and expect to earn the same this year.

If you're accredited based on assets, you can upload a statement from a financial institution or asset appraisals. You could also upload a letter from your lawyer, accountant, investment advisor, or investment broker indicating net assets.

In either case, it's important that your full legal name and a recent date is included on the document(s) that you upload.

Trust Investors

When verifying that your Trust is an accredited entity, we recommend uploading a letter from your lawyer, accountant, investment advisor, or investment broker, in which they attest to your trust's accreditation status. You can find our preferred 3rd-party accreditation attestation language here.

Company Investors

When verifying that your Company is an accredited entity, we recommend uploading a letter from your lawyer, accountant, investment advisor, or investment broker, in which they attest to your company's accreditation status. You can find our preferred 3rd-party accreditation attestation language here.
