While investing in small business loans may bring rewards, it also carries risks. These tips can help you determine if a crowdfunding offering is right for you.
After the enactment of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, the SEC was tasked with adopting rules to facilitate capital raising by small businesses while providing significant investor protections. Regulation Crowdfunding or Regulation CF enables individuals to purchase securities in crowdfunding offerings subject to certain limits, requires companies to disclose certain information about their business and securities offering, and creates a regulatory framework for the intermediaries facilitating crowdfunding transactions.
For each Loan, an escrow account will be set up to hold funds during the bidding process. This escrow account will be closed at the end of bidding with funds transferred either to the Company or returned to investors.
You must be 18 years or older and you will be subject to the rolling twelve month investment limitations of Regulation CF.
Any securities issued in an offering conducted under Regulation Crowdfunding are subject to a one-year restriction on transfer, unless such transfer is made: (i) to the issuer of the securities; (ii) to an accredited investor; (iii) as part of a registered offering; or (iv) to a family member of the purchaser or certain trusts. The promissory notes issued by companies using our funding portal may contain additional restrictions on transfer. Investments on Funding Wonder should be viewed as illiquid investments meaning you cannot sell the securities quickly and there may be no market for the investments when you are able to resell.

If the investor’s annual income and net worth are at least $100,000, then an investor may invest the lesser of:
Furthermore, for any 12-month period, the aggregate amount of securities sold to an investor through all crowdfunding offerings may not exceed $100,000.
The table below, which was provided by the SEC, provides examples of an individual investor’s aggregate investment limits in any 12-month period.
