SEC’s Rules for Title III of the JOBS ACT may Now be Closer

By Irene Tordera , crowdvalley.com, Three full years have passed since the JOBS Act was signed. In this time, the SEC has translated into rules only some of the Titles within it, for example TItle II and Title V, but has not acted yet on Title III, which should open online investing to retail investors.

Six Congressional Democrats issued an open letter dated October 5 to SEC Chair Mary Jo White, begging the regulator to issue the long-overdue rules to implement crowdfunding under Title III. Additionally and most notably,  the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority…

Weighing Crowdfunding VS. Small- Business Loans for Financial Growth

Weighing Crowdfunding VS. Small- Business Loans for Financial Growth

By: Daniel Ling, CrowdFundBeat guest Editor & offerboard.com Studies have found that successful crowdfunded projects or businesses depend on two main drivers: the marketability of the product and a large number of backers. Having a sexy, marketable project or product allows for greater ease with outreach. Furthermore, it’s critical to have a large support base of friends, family, community members, and online followers. These people function not only as funders but also promoters. These are just a few essential characteristics of successful small businesses, among many other critical business development components. Equally as important as having a supportive network is the choice to fund a…

Why Investors Should Consider Investing In Emerging Managers

Why Investors Should Consider Investing In Emerging Managers

Sang H. Lee CEO at DarcMatter, CrowdfundBeat  Sr. contributing guest editor, Definition There’s no set definition of what constitutes an emerging manager. Typically, these investment managers are newly formed and have a relatively small asset base of no more than $2 billion. The small asset base could be a strategic consideration on the managers’ part in that it’s easier to execute certain strategies with fewer assets. The idea is that the manager can remain focused and nimble on execution, rather than dealing with ancillary duties and the operational complexity of a large manager. Some people consider minority-controlled firms, like women-run hedge funds, to be part of the emerging manager space. With…
