Our specialist team provides a full range of crowdfunding regulatory support services to investment crowdfunding firms.

As well as helping new businesses secure FCA authorisation in the UK, we also provide ongoing crowdfunding regulatory support. We’ve worked for a number of years now with both debt-based and equity-based investment crowdfunding firms across a range of models and sectors.

There’s an ever-increasing regulatory burden on firms who raise capital from retail investors to finance deals sourced and vetted via their own platforms. Our detailed understanding of how the evolving regulatory landscape affects crowdfunding firms means we can provide expert insight and assistance.

The scale and complexity of MiFID II – and the detailed consideration it gives to issues such as the operation of secondary markets and customer on-boarding measures – create significant regulatory challenges for firms. This is in addition to the long-awaited FCA Policy Statement, which included a review into both the investment and loan-based crowdfunding (P2P lending) sectors.

Our expert team are here to help you with practical guidance and support on this and other compliance-related issues affecting both new and established crowdfunding businesses.

If you’re new to crowdfunding, we have the experience and expertise to guide you seamlessly through the process of gaining FCA authorisation. If you’re an established firm, we can help make sure you stay fully up to speed with your evolving regulatory obligations.

We offer a full range of crowdfunding regulatory support and services including auditing, training and advisory services.

If you’d like to know more about how we can help, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to explain in greater detail what Thistle can do for your business.
