    ECF is a form of fundraising that allows start-ups or other smaller enterprises to obtain capital through small equity investments using online platforms to publicise and facilitate such offers to a crowd of investors.

    Funding obtained from ECF can be described as `patient capital’ where investors take equity stakes in new companies and are expected to maintain that stake in a long-term manner. The low minimum investment threshold is also meant to attract participation from first-time investors who may choose this type of investment as their first asset class due to having a passion or interest in a particular business or venture.

    Key regulation for ECF operators can be found in in the Guidelines on Recognized Markets, in addition to other relevant regulations and guidelines.
