Seccl - Crowdcube partners with Seccl to shake up IPO marketIt’s official: Crowdcube, the leading equity crowdfunding platform, has chosen Seccl to provide customers with seamless, API-based access to public markets, as it sets its sights on launching a Community IPO product later this year.

Having facilitated over £1 billion in crowdfunding investment campaigns since it launched ten years ago, Crowdcube is no stranger to democratising investments. Its Community IPO product is the next step in that journey, promising everyday retail investors an opportunity to get a piece of the IPO action.

As a result, the leading fintech will now be able to offer retail investors the most diverse set of equity investments anywhere in Europe, enabling investors to back businesses from start-up to IPO alongside VCs and institutions.

It’s a super exciting development, and we’re delighted our technology will help make possible. By integrating with our custody, trading and settlement APIs, Crowdcube will be able to build on its existing secondary marketplace – Cubex – to create a seamless all-in-one experience to power retail participation on a mass scale.

Why Seccl?

Despite all the hard work innovative fintechs like Crowdcube are doing to democratise investments, everyday retail investors are still getting left out when it comes to Initial Public Offerings (IPOs).. Now, Crowdcube want to change that – and we’re completely onboard.

As Sam Lawson, Crowdcube’s VP of Capital Markets, puts it: “We have real alignment with Seccl on our vision to disrupt public markets, at first allowing retail investors fair access to IPOs. Together we have the right technology to include retail investors in a seamless and customisable way.
