Launching a digital finance portal for the first time can be difficult. From our experience, we understand there are many moving parts to this venture so, at a high level, we have outlined the main considerations when starting such an undertaking.
This will be the most important area both pre and post launch of your real estate crowdfunding portal. Resourcing for the venture can be broken into two categories a) Internal and b) Monetary. Using the Crowd Valley framework our clients have successfully entered the market varying degrees of each.
Regulation is beyond the scope of a platform operator’s control but it's a fundamental aspect to be aware of. Working through and setting up a regulated portal will require significant time and resourcing and, depending on where the platform is based/launched, specific regulation addressing crowdfunding may or may not have already been drafted, requiring the platform operator to use existing securities or banking laws.
The crowdfunding ecosystem will be directly influenced by which regulatory body you are working under. The US, UK and EU have strong ecosystems to support the automation of payments, compliance, document management and external data sources (to help with such areas as underwriting). Each country tends to have their own bespoke requirements for the above.
