Ed Greene will give a lecture on crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending in the TS Eliot Lecture Theatre at Merton College.
Crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending are new forms of fundraising, allowing companies to raise equity and debt from a wide range of investors. Both forms of fundraising raise difficulties and regulators are in the process of determining how to regulate these mechanisms. The US and UK have adopted somewhat different approaches to these issues to date. Ed Greene will address the concerns raised and compare the US and UK regulatory responses.
