Angels Den Investor

SIPPclub Member

I’ve been an Angels Den investor for a while. For years, I was disappointed with the way my insurance company was managing my pension.  I used to get the statements and do nothing with them.  Finally, I took action.  I transferred the money to a SIPP and now I make all the investment decisions.  Not only is it growing quicker than before, I’m thrilled to see my money at work.

Angels Den Is A Crowdfunding Platform That's Been Helping Entrepreneurs Get Funded Since 2007

Angels Den is an award winning angel-led crowdfunding platform, which combines the UK’s largest angel network with an equity crowdfunding platform.  Angel-led crowdfunding is an evolution of equity crowdfunding, giving each raise smart money, which increases a business' chance of long-term success.

The platform raises equity investment for pre-screened, unquoted, incorporated businesses and is one of the three largest equity crowdfunders in the UK. Investors are registered as members and classified as high net worth, sophisticated investors, professional persons or companies.

Angels Den differentiates itself from other platforms by providing an anchor investor in every deal and offering the same rights for the crowd as for angels.  Having an anchor angel in every deal provides the business with calculated capital and is the reason why we lead the industry with over 90 per cent of companies funded by Angels Den still trading.

Angels Den has a large base of experienced and new angel investors and runs several highly respected syndicates with a wealth of experience across the globe.

Angels Den also runs several events giving you the chance to meet a selection of pre-screened businesses, ask them questions and co-invest with other like-minded investors. Angels Den holds free masterclasses for investors before its pitching events, where you can improve your knowledge on all areas of investing.

Crowdfunding And Peer-To-Peer Risk Warning

When a platform has been assessed and approved by a SIPP or SSAS operator, this does not imply that any loan or investment opportunity is endorsed in any way. A SIPP or SSAS operator's due diligence review is limited to ensuring the processes and procedures of the platform are in line with both FCA and HMRC principles.  It's entirely your responsibility for carrying out your own due diligence on any loan or investment opportunity before agreeing to lend or invest your pension money on a platform. As a SIPP or SSAS operator will continually review platforms from a regulatory perspective, it's possible for a platform to become 'unapproved' if something changes.

With peer-to-peer lending, your capital is at risk if you lend to individuals and businesses.  You may lose some or all of the capital lent if the borrower defaults and is unable to meet its liabilities. Historic loan default rates are not necessarily indicative of future default rates.  In addition, lending is an illiquid investment, which means you may not be able to access the capital you lend for the duration of the loan period, even if the platform offers a secondary market.  Investing in any business involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Crowdfunding is generally targeted at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand the risks and make their own investment decisions, based on their knowledge, experience and financial capacity. Neither crowdfunding nor peer-to-peer lending is covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. The tax treatment of your investment is dependent on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of crowdfunding investment or peer-to-peer lending, you should consult a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.

IMPORTANT NOTE: NOTHING FEATURED ON SIPPclub IS EITHER AN IMPLIED OR A SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATION TO MAKE, OR TO REFRAIN FROM MAKING A FINANCIAL DECISION.  THIS PAGE HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED AS A FINANCIAL PROMOTION.

As SIPPclub neither advises on, nor arranges, nor recommends specific investments or strategies, we're unable to say whether a SIPP or SSAS or any investment within it is right for you. Ultimately, it’s your money and your decision, and you should only proceed once you're satisfied you've undertaken sufficient due diligence. If you need advice, you should speak to your trusted adviser, or you could find a local adviser from Unbiased.co.uk.  Alternatively, we'd be pleased to introduce to a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.
