CONSOB Legalizes Equity Crowdfunding in Italy

Equity-Based Crowdfunding in ItalyIn December 2012, Italian parliament elected to adopt legislation resembling the United States’ JOBS Act, titled the “Decreto Crescita Bis” or “Growth Act 2.0″. After months of rigorous review under the Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (SEC equivalent), the Italian government has finalized the proposed regulatory provisions, legally activating equity-crowdfunding in Italy. In light of these developments, Italy has become the first country to alter their laws support of equity-crowdfunding.

Currently, Italian law primarily focuses on funding innovative and high-tech projects.Equity-Based Crowdfunding in Italy As well, the CONSOB has come to their own resolutions concerning investor protection: before a company can become eligible for crowdfunding, a minimum of 5% must first be given to professional investors based on their own contributions. On top of this regulation, the Decreto Crescita Bis states:

  • At least 51% of the company must consist of non-legal entities
  • No distribution of profits, total yearly funding must not exceed 5-million EURO, and the company should be younger than 48-months

The legal status change of equity-based crowdfunding in Italy has sparked conversation world-wide. Many economists suggest that this event may be the catalyst necessary to provoke further international development, encouraging the U.S and the rest of Europe down a similar path.

Another region to be mindful of in the future is the UK, as great efforts have been made in recent months to expand the crowdfunding industry. For Canadians especially, the developments in the UK may be just as pertinent as those in the United States, which is why the UK Crowdfunding Association’s Autumn Conference may be of interest to many investors this year.
