SyndicateRoom:首家获得伦敦证交所会员资格的众筹平台

3月14日,总部位于英国剑桥的Syndicate Room宣布获得监管机构许可,成为业内首家获得伦敦证交所会员资格的众筹平台。这也意味着,金融市场行为监管局允许其作为中介人参与医疗投资公司HealthCare Royalty Trus在伦敦证交所主板上价值2亿英镑的IPO项目。

Syndicate Room成立于2012年,允许个人投资者在线股权投资早期个人公司,起步投资额为1000英镑。

在过去的几年里,它帮助包括Oval Medical Technologies, Check4Cancer 和Time for Medicine在内的多家私人医疗健康公司完成了融资。这些来自不同领域的公司在该平台上累计筹集到了4580万英镑的资金。

Syndicate Room首席执行官和联合创始人Goncalo de Vasconcelos表示,成为伦敦证交所的资格会员意味着,公司将能够给予用户参与整个公司发展的途径,并且帮助他们分散风险。

Goncalo de Vasconcelos说:“如果你是Syndicate Room的投资者,现在你可以打造一个包含不同风险的投资组合。”

他补充道:“我们之所以要获得伦敦证交所和金融市场行为监管局资格,是因为这是我们一直以来的目标:让像你我一样的投资人能够进行专业的投资。只不过现在我们把这个愿景拓展到了公开市场中。”

现在,许多初创企业和大型银行都在寻找优化传统上市流程的新方式。使用科技可以算作是一种手段,因为这有助于减少成本,并且让公司(尤其是那些消费主动型的公司)获得他们的用户基础。

De Vasconcelos说:“通过这些新方式,企业可以找到新的资金来源,同时也能帮助企业IPO造势。”

去年十月,JP摩根和美国初创公司Motif达成合作,散户投资者也可以直接参与IPO投资,最低额度250美元。也是在同一个月,投资公司Teathers Financial和券商Shard Capital发布了一款app,同样是为了让用户和机构投资者一起参与到IPO中来。

在英国金融科技领域中,快速成长的股权众筹板块吸引的注意力最多。支持者认为它有助于民主化投资,而批判者认为不成熟的投资者可能无法意识到其中的风险。

金融数据提供商AltFi去年11月发布的一份报道发现,2011到2013年间进行过股权众筹平台筹资过的英国公司中,有80%至今仍在运营。这个数据是令人惊讶的,因为根据RSA2014年的报告,55%的中小型公司都在前五年就关门了。

Syndicate Room, based in Cambridge, announced on March 14 that it has received regulatory approvals. It also said that it has been approved by the Financial Conduct Authority to act as an intermediary for the 200 million IPO of healthcare investment company HealthCare Royalty Trust on the London bourse's main market.

Founded in 2012, Syndicate Room allows individuals to make equity investments in early-stage private companies online, for a minimum amount of 1,000.

Over the past few years, it has completed fundraising campaigns for several private healthcare companies, including Oval Medical Technologies, Check4Cancer and Time for Medicine. Companies across different sectors have raised 45.8 million on the platform so-far.

Goncalo de Vasconcelos, chief executive and co-founder of Syndicate Room, said that because of the LSE membership, the company will now be able to give users access to the entire journey of growth businesses, and help them diversify their risk exposure.

De Vasconcelos said:"If you are an investor on Syndicate Room, now you can build a portfolio with different levels of risk."

He added: "The reason why we approached the LSE and the [Financial Conduct Authority] is exactly because of what we have been doing since the beginning: allowing people like you and I to invest with professionals. It reflects the same vision but takes it one step higher in the public markets."

The move comes as startups and large banks seek to use technology to overhaul the traditional listing process. Using technology is seen as a way to both help reduce costs and enable companies, especially consumer-focused ones, to get their customer base involved.

De Vasconcelos said: "Companies can tap into a new source of capital and it also generates some marketing around their IPOs."

In October, JP Morgan partnered with US-based startup Motif Investing to enable retail investors to access its IPOs through a minimum investments of $250. The same month investment firmTeathers Financial and stockbroker Shard Capital launched an app that aims to enable users to participate in IPOs alongside institutional investors.

The UK's fast-growing equity crowdfunding sector has been one of the most talked-about areas in fintech. Supporters argue that it is helping to democratise investments, while critics object that unsophisticated investors may not be fully aware of the risks involved.

A report published in November by alternative finance data provider AltFi Data found that more than 80% of UK companies that raised capital through UK equity crowdfunding platforms between 2011 and 2013 are still trading. The figures are surprising considering that 55% of UK small and medium businesses fail in their first five years, according to a 2014 RSA study.
