Equity & Revenue Crowd Funding Marketplace Reviewed by Ian Youngman in New Report Published at MarketPublishers.com

11 Sep 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Equity crowd funding is a rapidly emerging market that undermines and changes the existing financial models of investments.  This model not only boosts investments but also caters for cross-border investments and attracts a globally diverse audience. The legal position of equity and revenue crowd funding is unclear in a slew of countries and whilst some nations take aim at legalising and encouraging it, regulators in some geographies have attempted to kill it despite the fact that it may be legal.

Crowd funding generated USD 5.1 billion in funding transactions as of 2013; it is forecast to surpass the USD 300 billion mark in funding transactions by 2025. Some platforms do now succeed, with failures witnessed in China, the UK, the US and EU nations. Over the next ten years, crowd funding is forecast to increase at a rapid pace, widening the pool of prospective investors to over 50 million. There are hundreds of platforms and some have become multi-country. By end-2020, it will be common for individuals and businesses to forge relationships with businesses through market-wide platforms and websites, which enables investment whilst bypassing conventional finance companies and banking institutions.
