I am writing to oppose the proposed changes to the net worth requirements for the above captioned file number. I want access to the same types of investment choices as the “rich” people do. I am already qualified as an accredited investor under the current rules but would not qualify under the new rules. I may not have as much assets but I am a sophisticated investor. Regulatory oversight of funds would be fine. I do not want my investment choices limited to mutual funds and other Long-Only investments but need other choices as well. Please re-consider the proposed changes without limitation or an increase in the net worth requirement.
