Seminar with Andrew Macpherson

This is a joint seminar with the City of Sydney Law Society.


Many countries are implementing Crowd Sourced Equity Funding.  Why is this area important to SMEs?  What is the position in Australia and New Zealand?  How is regulatory arbitrage possible?  What do you advise your SME?

What are the issues for start-ups issuing shares in the fund raiser without a prospectus?

Andrew will look at the constraints on the equity issuer, the agent or crowd platform and the investor and how they differ from the traditional IPO.  Crowd sourced funding provides some insight to the quality of the idea and the management team and may change the way capital is raised at the IPO level.
