The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has proposed rules to implement the provisions of Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, that would allow startups and small businesses to raise capital through securities-based crowdfunding. The proposed rules also provide a framework to regulate a new category of so-called “funding portal” intermediaries, in coordination with rules pertaining to funding portals proposed on the same day by FINRA. Crowdfunding issuers must use an intermediary that is either a registered broker-deal or a funding portal in order to issue crowdfunding securities to investors.
