Another Crowd was created by a small group of friends who realised we were all interested in crowdfunding and the 'alternative finance' trend, but we couldn't find a site that covered the UK from the point of view of investors.
Now that Parliament has settled on a framework for regulating crowdfunding, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced he will allow crowd investments to be eligible for ISAs, we decided it was time to start sharing our information with the world at large.
We hope you enjoy our site, but please bear in mind, Another Crowd offers analysis, commentary and uses its best endeavours to verify that what is stipulates to be fact is actually true. The site does not offer advice, and you should not invest relying on any representations made on this site. Investing is an inherently risky business, and potential investors should solicit advice from a qualified and regulated financial adviser, accountant or lawyer.
