By Shane Liddell is the CEO and chief Crowdfundologist at Smart Crowdfunding LLC,.

However, as with any new industry forging ahead and desperate for acceptance, the surrounding hype that comes with it often blurs reality, with any form of negativity simply  ‘brushed under the carpet’ so to speak.

Attorney Sanctioned by SEC for Unregistered Broker-Dealer Activity

Attorney Sanctioned by SEC for Unregistered Broker-Dealer Activity

By  Bret Daniel , Wealthforge.com, CrowdfundBeat Guest Post, The SEC crackdown on unregistered entities continues to grab headlines. Recently, we wrote about the importance of complying with the broker-dealer registration requirement under Section 15(a) by highlighting the latest violations by portfolio managers, online platforms, and individuals.

Crowdfunding with Self Directed IRA?

1-c54b29e834

Crowdfund Beat Data Center: Deloitte Report MPLs are online platforms that enable investors to lend to retail and commercial borrowers. Unlike banks, MPLs do not take deposits or lend themselves; as such they do not take any risk onto their balance sheets. They make money from fees and commissions received from borrowers and lenders. The rise of Marketplace lending has urged many commentators to highlight the potential disruption that such new business models may bring to traditional banking. Our research presents a different opinion and instead concludes that MPLs do not currently have the competitive advantage needed to threaten this traditional banking model. However, while…
