Investing

Who can invest?

Different types of offerings allow for different investors. Some types of offerings require that you be an accredited investor, while others allow everyone the opportunity to invest. Some offerings may require that you live within a certain area to invest. Knowing what kind of investor you are will help you understand in which offerings you may invest in.

What happens if an offering doesn't reach it's funding goal?

If an offering hasn’t reached it’s funding goal by the end of a funding round, the project will close and your committed funds will be refunded. You should expect to receive a refund within 10 business days.

How much can I invest?

The amount of funding you can invest depends on your status as an investor, the governing regulation and limits the issuer has chosen to place. When you begin your investment, you will be shown both the maximum and minimum investment limits depending on the investment, issuer, regulations and your situation.

Will I pay a fee for investing?

No, you are not assessed any fees directly for your investment in any investment round. The fees associated with running the project, accrediting you as a qualified investor, placing the funds received into escrow and so on are paid by the issuer. Fees paid by the issuer can affect your investment return. More information about fees are disclosed in the issuer’s offering documents. 

Can I cancel my investment?

Yes, you can cancel your investment up to the closure of a round of funding. Once the funding round has closed, you will not be able to cancel your investment. If you’ve already submitted payment, you should expect a refund within 10 business days.

Can I modify my investment?

No, you cannot modify an investment after you’ve completed your commitment to invest. If you wish to invest a different amount or make other such modifications, you may cancel your previous investment if the funding round is still open and make a new investment.

Can the issuer or the portal cancel my investment?
