Crowdfunding landlords in retirement

Crowdfunding landlords in retirement

by Michelle McGagh, Pensioners thinking of using their freed pension cash to get into buy-to-let may have to turn to crowdfunding to fulfil their plans. New peer-to-peer lender Landbay is offering finance to those who want to purchase a buy-to-let property but who are frustrated by age restrictions on mortgages. Crowdfunding works by pooling money from investors to fund certain projects, in this case the purchase of a property, with the peer-to-peer platform essentially marrying up those who want to lend with those who want to borrow. Landbay aims to provide alternative finance to those who may not qualify for, or are not in the…

Crackdown on crowdfunding websites EIS service in UK

Crackdown on crowdfunding websites EIS service in UK

Reports this week claim that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is pushing to regulate online crowdfunding sites next year amid concerns about customer safeguards. John Williams, Managing Partner at Kuber Ventures states: ‘’All investments by their very nature carry with them a varying degree of risk, but most consumers would expect them also to be firmly regulated, to ensure best practice and consumer protection”. ‘’The Government introduced Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS) to encourage people to invest in small business start-ups and benefit from tax efficient investments within a controlled environment. But by investing in small business through crowdfunding websites, investors leave themselves exposed”. Kuber Ventures is the UK’s first multi-manager platform for comparing,…

Crowdfunding Nuts And Bolts: Tackling Fulfilment & Campaign Rewards

Crowdfunding Nuts And Bolts: Tackling Fulfilment & Campaign Rewards

One of the biggest challenges for very successful crowdfunded projects, as I mentioned in my last piece on crowdfunding, is how to deal with sending out all those rewards. Distributing digital rewards is quite simple, but physical items can be more problematic, especially if you get significantly more supporters than you had anticipated. If you only need to send out a few hundred items, it’s easy enough to get a few friends round, ply them with food and booze, and do your packaging by hand. In the UK you can buy and print out your postage online, and then you only need to schlep everything to the…

Alan Moore: The revolution will be crowd-funded

Alan Moore: The revolution will be crowd-funded

The “Watchmen” creator talks about his new Kickstarter-funded film series, zombies and the surveillance state “I’m remote from most technology to the point that I’m kind of Amish,” admits the legendarily bearded author without an Internet connection, mobile phone or even a functioning television. But Alan Moore — the soft-spoken sage behind prescient comics like “V for Vendetta,” “From Hell,” “Watchmen” and many more — nevertheless does have a Kickstarter project up for procuring finishing funds for his short-film series, “Jimmy’s End.” It’s his second trip through the crowd-funding concept, having previously signed up alongside “V for Vendetta” artist David Lloyd, “Maus’s” Art Spiegelman and scores of other…
