Is crowdfunding the small investor’s most exciting option? According to coverage in the Investors Chronicle (IC) it very well might be.
“Buying shares in tiny start-up companies and watching them grow makes investing in ordinary shares and funds feel tame. So if you're a stock market big-return hunter looking for a new pastime, then crowdfunding could be your new best friend,” opines the IC.
But excitement, as ever, comes at a price. Crowdfunding investment is no exception to this, as the IC goes on to point out: “Professional angel investors report making bumper returns - earning 30 times your initial investment is not uncommon - although even they admit that most of their investments go to pot.”
