I'm planning to solicit risk capital from a dozen or more friends & family spread across a few countries in Asia and several cities in the US. Most communication will be via phone and e-mail. We will us IB's simple friends & family service. Are there rules/regs I need to be aware about re: solicitation? Obviously I must tell everyone that the invitation is to them and select family/friends exclusively, and not a public solicitation. And of course there is a requirement to be scrupulously honest in all dealings. Thoughts, suggestions most welcome.
