Crowdfunding in Singapore

Fintech Software

A fintech company that operates a securities crowdfunding platform may be required to hold a capital markets services licence for 'dealing in capital markets products (securities)' under the SFA. In facilitating the offer of shares to persons in Singapore, prospectus registration requirements under the SFA will be triggered. It is possible to rely on a specific prospectus registration exemption for these purposes but the invocation of a prospectus registration exemption may carry certain advertising restrictions (i.e., restrictions on marketing the specific share).1

The marketing and management of collective investment schemes, and the provision of equity crowdfunding platforms, peer-to-peer lending platforms and payment services, will typically fall within the scope of regulated activities in Singapore. Fintech companies that intend to offer these products and services should consider whether they will require a licence and whether licensing exemptions may be relied on (if so desired).1
