They explain that FXCH is driving a robust schedule of software development and plans to hire additional experienced sales people in some of the leading financial centers around the world. Funding they say will help them accelerate the establishment of FXCH as the leading Clearing House for Foreign Exchange.
The campaign will take place on Seedrs, the London-based equity crowdfunding platform for investing in startups and later-stage businesses throughout Europe launched in 2012. Seedrs is authorised and regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and participation is not available to US citizens and US residents.
Franck Mikulecz, founder of FXCH, explained: “I have decided to launch an equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs. This platform has proven to be a successful tool for many Fintech Startups while also caring for the interest of private investors. Seedrs organises a nominee vehicle that simplifies the process of investing and guarantees all investors the same conditions.”
