investUP (known as UP), the crowdfunding supermarket, today announces partnerships with five new equity and Peer-to-Business (P2B) crowdfunding sites, joining the eight crowdfunding sites already on the investUP platform.
Partnerships with Property Moose, Invest & Fund, Assetz Capital, Ablrate and AngelList, will allow investors to search for the most suitable investments from a greater choice of deals.
As crowdfunding continues to grow rapidly, UP will help its partner crowdfunding sites develop by focusing on marketing the deals, in effect enabling the crowdfunding partners to concentrate on getting more and better deals on to their platforms. In turn, investors will benefit from access to a superior choice and quality of potential investments via their centralised UP portfolio.
The crowdfunding sites joining the UP platform are:
- Property Moose – hassle free property investment
- Invest & Fund – solving investment problems and providing funding solutions for high quality deals
- Assetz Capital – one of the UK’s largest P2B lending sites
- Ablrate – asset backed lending focusing on aeronautics
- AngelList – one of the largest equity crowdfunding sites in the US, having just launched in the UK
James Tuckett, Managing Director at investUP, said: “We live in an age where crowdfunders are demanding more and more deals, yet are faced with a myriad of crowdfunding site choices. Looking for a single crowdfunding site to start a portfolio can be difficult and time consuming. We take the view that, as the crowdfunding supermarket, crowdfunders using our platform should be able to lend and invest in deals from all the key players across the entire market. We are very excited to introduce our five newest partners and look forward to delivering the highest quality of investments to our current and future users.”
UP brings the P2B crowdfunding market together in one place, enabling users to invest via one centralised portfolio (Peer-to-Peer and equity coming soon). It allows investors to search for deals from all their favourite crowdir favir favourite crowdfunding sites, uniquely invest in these without leaving the site and then keep track of their investments. UP is completely free, with no hidden costs. It revolutionises the market by bringing simplicity and increasing choice for users, in a simple, elegant and straightforward way.
