Regulation D

Business / Taxes / Regulation D: Both the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Federal Reserve have regulations known as Regulation D. The SEC’s Regulation D specifies which securities can be sold within the United States without having to be registered with the Commission. Among the other restrictions, these securities can be made available only to accredited investors — individuals with a net worth of at least $1 million or an annual income of $200,000 or more, and institutions with assets of $5 million or more. The Federal Reserve’s Regulation D sets the requirements for depositary institutions, including the amount of cash the bank must hold in reserve and the number of transfers or withdrawals permitted for a savings account — which is six transfers every four week cycle with no more than three by check or electronic payment.
