2015 PENSCO Crowdfunding Report

CrowFundBeat Media, 

Crowdfunding Redefined The new wave of capital raising in 2015 Crowdfunding. Equity crowdfunding. Crowdinvesting. Peer-to-peer lending. What do these terms mean? How do they help investors locate and access opportunity? These are two of the questions that we hear regularly from clients who are looking to diversify their tax-advantaged retirement portfolios with high-quality alternative assets.

The answers are a work in progress. Less than three years ago, private placements could not be advertised, on the web or otherwise. Today, we are able to create an entire report about using websites, social media and other Internet-based technology to connect investors with private placements. The rapid evolution of “crowdfunding” means there is still debate over basic terminology (see page 4), but more importantly the opportunities to participate in private equity and debt offerings continue to grow and expand, aided by a favorable regulatory environment, lower investment minimums and technology.

We created The PENSCO Marketplace™ to help self-directed investors research these opportunities. Many IRA holders do not realize that in addition to traditional exchange-traded assets like stocks, bonds and mutual funds, they can also invest in assets that traditional financial institutions don’t offer, such as limited partnerships, private equity and real estate. The goal of this report is to help investors research the evolving landscape of opportunities that meet their investment goals and risk profile. Offered here are the perspectives of participants in The PENSCO Marketplace™ along with insight from one of the preeminent angel investing industry organizations. There are a few key trends to keep in mind as you explore this material.
