US Citizens buying Reg S securities

Has any US citizen done this with a broker?  Fidelity told me this cannot be done with a reg S security on the LSE.

I believe they are correct.

 

Even if you found a broker that would sell you Reg S, I would avoid it since you could face legal trouble from the SEC/IRS. The same goes for 144 securities if you are not a qualified buyer.

Reg S and 144a are similar. Same offerings will be made to US investors as 144a and European/non-US investors as Reg S.

 

You need to be a Qualified Institutional Buyer(QIB) - $100mm for a fund.
