Sophisticated investors and multiple similar definitions as accredited, professional, expert, etc.that are set out in the legislation of different countries refer to a high-net-worth individual with relevant knowledge, investment skills, special power, authority, or recognized standards.
By the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) definition, an accredited investor is a person or a business that is allowed to purchase and deal with securities without the need to register with SEC.
Sophisticated investors are subject to Enhanced Due Diligence measures (required to submit documented proof of their investment history and proof of funds supported by the bank statements, tax returns, etc) due to the high-risk status of transactions.
