abstract

Crowdfunding platforms have been particularly relevant in the ambit of innovations introduced with the development of Fintech, including those that base their activity on lending (the so called “lending-based crowdfunding” platforms).  The active platforms - whose number in Italy is still relatively small - carry out a market activity that facilitates the matching of interests between those who are in surplus (and wish to use money towards a return), and those who are in deficit (and wish to obtain funding). This article aims to provide a look at lending crowdfunding, with a twofold purpose: (i) understanding how the relevant platforms can be legally qualified, also with regard to their compatibility with the activities reserved by law to financial intermediaries; ii) analyzing the possible scenarios related to the “European Crowdfunding Service Providers” EU Regulation (ECSP), considering that only in recent years the Commission has decided to go beyond a mere monitoring of the sector.
