ACH Direct Deposit gives you the ability to authorize your bank to send your contribution payment directly to the sponsor. ACH setup is a one-time event. Once it is configured, you can make ACH payments for other offerings as well.

Keep in mind that:

  • The maximum amount for ACH direct deposits is $250,000.00

  • ACH currently supports U.S. Bank Accounts only

  • U.S. law and KYC/AML compliance requires verification of all users who are funding through electronic transactions

  • ACH transactions generally take 3-5 business days to complete

  • Some banks require verification of micro deposit amounts

You can set up ACH when you are at the funding stage of the investment process. Once all the agreements and documents are submitted, signed, and approved, you will receive an email with a link that will direct you to the funding instructions. You will also see this banner when you access the portal:

Whether you click from the email or navigate from the banner, you will arrive at the page to begin the funding process.

If you have not yet configured ACH, selecting the funding option ACH - Direct Deposit will initiate the identity verification process required by US law.
