Wholesale Investing in Australia
Wholesale investing refers to the practice of investing in financial products that are generally only available to wholesale investors.
In Australia, a wholesale investor is considered a high-net-worth individual, company, trust, or superannuation fund with a net assets value of at least AUD 2.5 million or gross income of at least AUD 250,000 per annum.
These investors are considered experienced and sophisticated enough to understand the risks and merits of investing in specific financial products that may not be available to retail investors.
Wholesale Investors generally have exclusive access to a broader range of financial products and often have access to professional advice and guidance. They are also held to a higher standard of conduct than retail investors.
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is responsible for regulating the market for wholesale investors and protecting them from fraud and other risks.
