Who can invest in Origin’s Funds?

To invest in Origin Funds, investors must meet the SEC’s criteria of being an accredited investor.

I am investing through a business entity (i.e., a trust, limited liability corporation, partnership or corporation). How does an entity qualify as an “accredited investor”?

An entity satisfies the SEC’s definition of an accredited investor by meeting one of the following criteria:

  • Is wholly owned by accredited investors
  • Has total assets in excess of $5 million and has not been formed for the purpose of investing in a specific investment.

Why do I have to prove I am accredited for this investment?

Origin Funds are offered pursuant to an SEC rule referred to as 506(c). The rule requires that Origin verify the accreditation status of each investor. For this reason, investors are required to provide written certification from a licensed professional (attorney, CPA, investment adviser or broker/dealer) that attests to their accreditation.

How can I verify I am accredited?

Origin will provide a standard accreditation letter that can be signed off on by a CPA, attorney or financial adviser. If those options aren’t available to an investor, they can go through Acceptable accreditation letters will have been signed within 90 days prior to subscribing to any Origin Funds.

What if I don’t want to verify that I am accredited?

Verifying your accreditation status through one of the approved methods above is required to invest in an Origin Fund.

I have verified my accreditation. Will I have to provide accreditation in the future?

Verified investors do not need to re-submit accreditation for a period of five years after initial submission.

What is a qualified purchaser?

A qualified purchaser is an individual or a family-owned business that owns $5 million or more in investments, not including a primary residence or any property used for business.

Investing with Origin

How does the subscription process work?

Prospective investors interested in subscribing to a Fund can do so using our investor portal. Once subscription documents have been reviewed by our internal team, next steps will be sent to investors.

When will I need to wire my capital?

Depending on the specific offering, you might either be required to send capital immediately after signing the subscription documents or to wait until your capital is called by Origin.

How will I be updated on the performance of my investments?

There are a few avenues to stay up to date on the performance: the Origin portal, quarterly investor reports and webinars.

Can international investors participate?

Generally, investors residing outside the United States are not eligible to invest in Origin’s Funds. Our website and offerings are directed exclusively to people located within the United States.

Am I able to sell or withdraw my investments prior to the end of the hold period?

Investments in Origin Funds are generally illiquid, and investors should anticipate holding their investment for the period specified in each Fund’s respective private placement memorandum (PPM). An investor in an Origin Fund may not sell, assign or transfer their interest in the Fund without the prior consent of the Fund manager. All our Funds associate a penalty with withdrawing capital prior to the hold period. Please reference the private placement memorandum (PPM) specific to the Fund you are investing in for details.

What is a private placement memorandum (PPM)?

A private placement memorandum (PPM) serves as a comprehensive document outlining material details about the offering. A PPM is a securities disclosure document used by a company engaged in a private offering of securities.

What is the minimum investment in a Fund?

Depending on the offering, the minimum investment ranges from $50,000 to $100,000.

What tax form will I receive, and when can I expect it?

You will receive a K-1 form. Although our goal is to finalize our K-1s by April 15 of each year, the Fund may be dependent upon outside reporting, or require additional time to furnish the forms, in which case you may be required to obtain one or more extensions for filing federal, state and local tax returns.
