Information for Regulators 

ACFA is the go-to association for all regulatory engagement on crowdfunding in Africa.

Several African countries have begun work on creating the enabling conditions for crowdfunding to thrive. If you are interested in learning more, ACFA can share valuable resources and best practices, as well as perform an initial diagnostic on the crowdfunding-readiness of your country’s securities regulation.

ACFA understands that some aspects of crowdfunding can be intimidating for regulators with no prior experience with financial technology. In line with our founding principles, ACFA is committed to building transparency and knowledge-sharing between African regulators to make sure that you have all the necessary information to kickstart discussions in your country.

Regulators in the United States and across Europe took many years to finalise crowdfunding rules; by virtue of its simplified capital markets infrastructure, Africa has a tremendous opportunity to leapfrog such hurdles, stay agile and reactive to markets developments while protecting its consumers in this promising new industry.
