CrowdingLab is a facilitator of real investments and will not offer the management of assets. All investment contracts will be signed between the Project Owner and the Funder. Funds of Funders will be separated from the Operators operational funds. In case of the Operator’s financial difficulties or bankruptcy, the funds of Funders will be safe and still be accessed. In such an unlikely event, a contractual entity will be appointed to take over the role of the Operator to serve all the investments.

CrowdingLab crowdfunding platform is supervised by the Bank of Lithuania, thus, it also approved the platform’s business continuity plan.

In this case, the following key actions have been identified:
  • Suspension of the release of new loans.
  • Transfer of loan administration to a temporary administrator.

Investors' money is held in a separate Paysera client bank account. The account is separated from CrowdingLab’s operational bank account and is protected in the unlikely event that anything happens with CrowdingLab. Uninvested money that is on your account can be withdrawn instantly.
