FAQs

Frequently asked, easily answered. 

Are you regulated?

Yes, Globacap is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK, with passporting across the EU.

How do you vett potential investors for KYC/AML?

All investors go through a Know Your Customer (KYC) check during the registration process. This includes identity verification, which checks a global anti-money laundering watchlist, as well as checking the authenticity of their identification document. Investors who have not completed the check successfully are not able to invest through Globacap.

When needed, we provide a complete and verifiable audit trail and transaction log for compliance reporting purposes.

Can we issue a private offering?

Yes, you can restrict an offering to a private audience – this offering will only be viewable by invitation. At any time during the subscription period, you can still open the offering to a wider audience.

Our company is not located in the UK, can we still raise on Globacap?

Yes.  A number of companies who have raised on Globacap are not located in the UK. We are regulated in the UK, however we will work with you to ensure that your raise falls within the guidelines of your company’s jurisdictional requirements.

How do you handle the regulation when distributing to international investors?

We hold the regulatory risk while distributing your investment offering, our platform was designed to take care of this seamlessly.

We have analysed and pre-categorised all of the different regulatory requirements across 50 countries around the world. Then, during the onboarding process, investors are automatically categorised according to that matrix of regulatory requirements. After this our platform is easily able to show or hide any suitable investment offerings depending on their category, and show all the appropriate risk warnings.
