European Commission conducts a study to explore crowdfunding from users’ perspectives

The Financial Services Users Group (FSUG), a consultative group of the European Commission, is currently conducting a study to explore crowdfunding from users’ perspectives. The study focuses on investors (not fundraisers) in platforms with financial returns (lending and equity).

This is the first effort at a pan-European level to analyze user’s behavior and perceptions when using crowdfunding with financial returns. In this context two respective questionnaires have been constructed, one for equity and one for lending. Both questionnaires are available in six languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Estonian.

They are freely accessible at the following links:

Equity: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/CROWDFUNDSurvey2015EQ

Lending: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/LENDINGcrowdfundingCONSUMERsurvey

The answers received will stay anonymous. The results will be published in a report that will be publicly available to everyone and accessible also through our Commission website: http://ec.europa.eu/finance/general-policy/crowdfunding/index_en.htm
