About the
UK Crowdfunding Association

Join the UK Crowdfunding Association (UKCFA) as we advocate for the advancement of the crowdfunding and alternative finance industry, providing support, guidance, and representation for our members, while empowering businesses and entrepreneurs to access diverse funding opportunities.

The UK Crowdfunding Association was formed in 2013 with the purpose of promoting the interests of crowdfunding and alternative finance platforms, their investors, and clients. By working together and speaking with one voice we are successfully cooperating with regulators and lawmakers to take the industry forward as a force for positive change in the UK’s financial sector.

We uphold certain standards, requiring our members to agree the UKCFA code of conduct, and champion alternative finance with various promotional and lobbying activities. Our members also agree to support calls for a strong regulatory framework, which will protect platforms, businesses, and investors without stifling the industry’s capacity for growth.

Members

The following are members of the UKCFA and represent a wide range of businesses that are helping to revolutionise the way businesses can connect with individual investors to finance their businesses, projects and ventures.

The UKCFA is open to new members and supporters who are willing to sign up to our code of conduct.

36H Group

In 2022, the UKCFA created a sub-group to separate peer-to-peer lending platform members from equity platform members, who have different needs and interests. Why 36h?  That’s the amendment to the Finacial Services Act that pertains to the inclusion of peer-to-peer lending.
The group meets monthly to discuss, responses to consultation papers, lobbying, training, best practice and more.

CURRENT OBJECTIVES:

  • Lobby to:
    • HMT – for support, especially with non-bank lending support initiatives
    • FCA – to have certain p2p agreements recognised as Readily Realisable Securities instead of Restricted Mass Market Investments
    • BBB – to better engage the sector.
  • Promote peer-to-peer lending / regulated defi (decentralised finance) as a proven asset class
  • Standardised performance reporting to facilitate performance benchmarking
  • Prepare and update an investment paper, aimed at Family Offices, DFMs, IFA and other FS professionals presenting the 36h group members
