Investor’s Guide to Selling on the Secondary Market

A transformative tool for investors enabling diversification and facilitating exits from investments.

15th December 2023

The Crowd2Fund Small Business Exchange gives investors in businesses the ability to list an investment, set a sale price and sell the investment to another registered investor. This article serves as your guide to selling on the Secondary Market.

When you decide to sell a loan part, the process is relatively straightforward. We’ve listed the complete steps from start to finish below. 

Step 1.

Navigate to your “My Investments” page using the drop-down menu from the top right of the screen.

 

 

Step 2.

Open either your Loans or Revenue Loans in order to find a loan to list.

 

 

Step 3.

Select the loan you wish to list.

 

 

Step 4.

Press the red Sell button to the right of the loan’s entry. 

 

Step 5.

Set the offer price and interest rate for your listing.

 

 

Step 6.

Read and agree to the terms and conditions, then press Sell to send your loan part listing off for approval. 

From this point on the sale of your loan part will pass out of your hands and into the hands of our experienced Exchange team. They will assess your loan parts and decide whether the loan can be listed.

There are several restrictions on the current version of The Exchange, which can affect your ability to list a loan part on The Exchange. Secondary Markets are regulated by the FCA, and we have added extra protections to safeguard potential buyers.

Any of the following circumstances will make a loan ineligible for listing:

  1. Loans issued to a business with a credit score of D or lower.
  2. Loans issued between September 23, 2020, 00:00, and September 16, 2021, 00:00, as this period coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic.
  3. Loans associated with businesses in arrears.
  4. Loans for businesses that have not provided their latest financial accounts.
  5. Loans associated with businesses that have changed sector.
