Crowd2Fund becomes directly authorised by the FCA, the first platform of its kind globally

The Crowd2Fund team have reached a significant milestone today by becoming what they believe is the worlds first regulated five model platform across both debt and equity crowdfunding investment vehicles.

1st January 2009

The Crowd2Fund team have reached a significant milestone today by becoming what they believe is the worlds fist regulated five model platform across both debt and equity crowdfunding investment vehicles.

We see this as an incredible achievement on the part of the FCA, and through the implementation of new policies that were introduced by the regulator earlier in the year.

In addition, becoming fully regulated has been made possible due to the internal efforts of the Crowd2Fund compliance team, led by Michael Walford-Williams, who has experience of dealing with many global regulators. Resolution, our third party compliance specialists, have also been instrumental in helping us reach this achievement.

Over the previous few months there have been numerous consultations by the FCA and some fearsome debates have taken place between  platform owners, users and regulators. Now  that our regulatory status has been upgraded to directly authorised we can accelerate  the company growth whilst remaining vigilant about regulation and ensuring that our business is compliant.

Crowd2Fund is now part of a number of associations including:

•    UK Crowdfunding Association
•    Crowdfunding Accreditation for Platform Standards
•    Information Commissioner
•    European Crowdfunding Association
•    UK Business Angels Association
•    Innovate Finance
•    Westminster crowdfunding forum

And now the Financial Conduct Authority.

Crowd2Fund takes regulation very seriously. We are committed to offering the highest quality of service and investment opportunities available to our investors.  It’s a privilege for us to be the first platform of its kind to be regulated by a forward thinking regulator that is leading other global regulators.
