Crowdcube prepares for retail IPO product launch

Crowdcube has partnered with investment tech company Seccl to deliver API-based access to public markets, in preparation for the launch of its Community IPO product later this year.

The investment crowdfunding platform is integrating with Seccl’s infrastructure to boost its capital markets tech and offer an all-in-one experience as the company eyes retail participation on a mass scale.

The Community IPO is the latest in a line of new products from the British FinTech, which aims to become the “European marketplace for retail investment into private and public companies.”

Crowdcube also recently announced the launch of Cubex, its secondary marketplace that allows retail investors to buy and sell shares in high-growth private European companies.

“We have real alignment with Seccl on our vision to disrupt public markets, at first allowing retail investors fair access to IPOs,” said Sam Lawson, vice president of capital markets at Crowdcube. “Together we have the right technology to include retail investors in a seamless and customisable way.

Lawson added: “The quality of Seccl’s team and solution is exactly what we need as we embark on our next step to democratise primary investment in the public markets, and double down on our mission of supporting entrepreneurs, from inception to IPO.”
