IOSCO has published a statement on addressing the regulation of crowdfunding alongside the Crowdfunding 2015 Survey Responses Report. IOSCO seeks to raise awareness concerning some of the major risks investors face when investing in crowdfunding such as the high risk of default, fraud and platform failure. It also encourages regulators and policy makers to note the measures currently taken by regulators to address the risks inherent in crowdfunding, including customising access to funding portals, setting disclosure requirements and requiring understanding of the risks involved.
