Emerging Crowd provides investors with access to carefully vetted growth-stage businesses in select frontier and emerging markets. We believe that favourable demographics, high rates of economic growth, expanding consumer-classes and rapid urbanisation create huge growth potential for well-managed companies in these markets.

Invest with confidence

We combine best practices from crowdfunding, private equity and capital markets:


World class due diligence

We’re very selective – for every company you see on Emerging Crowd, many more have been rejected. Our team of analysts works with independent legal experts to carry out due diligence on every company and the people behind it.

  • Background checks
  • Fact-checking and documentation review
  • Financial analysis and modelling
  • Legal and compliance review

We do our homework, and we’ll only show you the companies that have met our standards for corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure.

Proper disclosure documents

We believe all our investors deserve a proper look at the company before investing – whether it’s an equity or debt campaign. We make sure all our companies prepare an Invitation Document containing:

  • Financial disclosure
  • Business model and growth strategy
  • Ownership and management
  • Potential exit strategies and risk factors

We will only show you Invitation Documents that we deem to be “fair, clear and not misleading”, and you can also speak directly to the company right on the platform.

Investor protection

We’re passionate about investor protection, and every investment you make – however small or large – is backed up by solid legal agreements under English law. After you invest, you can monitor your global portfolio right on the platform, for the life of your investment:

  • Quarterly management reports with key financial indicators
  • Year-end financial statements
  • Timely updates of key developments
  • Voting shares in all equity campaigns

We don’t charge you to invest, and your money and investments are held safely in segregated client accounts by our custodian and nominee.
