About Simple Crowdfunding
Making Property Investment Accessible To Everyone
Simple Crowdfunding is an FCA – regulated property finance platform allowing investors to invest directly in UK property whilst helping developers deliver more homes in the UK. We offer both equity and peer to peer lending investment opportunities, accept ISA, pension and international investors and offer a learn whilst investing program. We first received authorisation in 2013 and have been growing ever since.
Our platform provides access to UK property to everyone, connecting investors and property professionals (fundraisers) through projects. Investors access property investment opportunities and have the opportunity to learn about different property strategies through 'live' projects. Fundraisers get projects funded, allowing them to deliver more homes, increase their brand presence and expand their investor community reach.
Our team are experienced property and finance professionals, who enjoy what we do. We have experience of buy to lets, renovations, empty property conversions, new builds, HMOs and more - both in the UK and overseas. We love this marketplace as it allows property companies to successfully grow and reach their property ambitions and provides investors with a platform where they can build their own wealth portfolios online, at their own pace and level, in a simple, repeatable way.
Simple Crowdfunding is a member of the UK Crowdfunding Association (UKCFA), and founding member of both the UKCFA 36H Group (focused on peer to peer lending) and the Association of Real Estate Investment Platforms (a global trade body focused on investment data standardisation).
