Financial Market Conduct Regulations – Warning statement about equity crowdfunding

  • Equity crowdfunding is risky.
  • Issuers (companies issuing shares) using Snowball Effect’s facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of businesses is very speculative and carries high risks.
  • You may lose your entire investment, and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship.
  • New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest.
  • This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision. The usual rules do not apply to offers by issuers using Snowball Effect to raise funds. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment.
  • Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself to any investment.
