Une nouvelle étape de  l’intégration du crowd-funding dans l’économie américaine vient d’être franchie avec l’adoption de règles par  la SEC pour encadrer ces activités de financement. Ainsi, dans un communiqué paru le  30 octobre dernier, elle y mentionne:

Washington D.C., Oct. 30, 2015 — The Securities and Exchange Commission today adopted final rules to permit companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding.   The Commission also voted to propose amendments to existing Securities Act rules to facilitate intrastate and regional securities offerings.   The new rules and proposed amendments are designed to assist smaller companies with capital formation and provide investors with additional protections.Crowdfunding is an evolving method of raising capital that has been used to raise funds through the Internet for a variety of projects.   Title III of the JOBS Act created a federal exemption under the securities laws so that this type of funding method can be used to offer and sell securities.  â€œThere is a great deal of enthusiasm in the marketplace for crowdfunding, and I believe these rules and proposed amendments provide smaller companies with innovative ways to raise capital and give investors the protections they need,” said SEC Chair Mary Jo White.  â€œWith these rules, the Commission has completed all of the major rulemaking mandated under the JOBS Act.”

Les règles émises concernent tant les investisseurs en limitant la durée et les montants que les plate-formes supportant le crowd-funding.  A lire ici :
