We want our investors to be fully aware of the downsides of equity investing as well as the potential benefits. It's therefore important to realise that investing in small companies always carries risks, including the loss of capital, illiquidity (the inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends and share dilution. Equity investments should still be made as part of a diversified portfolio. Read our full Risk Warning

Equity Crowdfunding is defined by investors buying shares in a private company, usually a start-up or early growth outfit. The company receives a group of backers and cash, and shareholders receive a share certificate, and often rewards, related to the company’s activity. It is related to pure rewards-based crowdfunding (as seen on Kickstarter) and peer-to-peer lending, but the issue of illiquid shares for cash sets it distinctly apart.

There has been some confusion about what equity crowdfunding (“ECF”) means. Numerous reports and analysis in some heavy duty ‘papers have compared company funding achieved online via a platform, such as this one, with more general SME growth or start-up funding, achieved via alternative routes – i.e. borrowing from Funding Circle or similar compared to using Angels Networks or VCs. These last two methods are not equity crowdfunding.
