Kim Wales and Scott Purcell, industry leaders in securities based crowd funding and Board Members of the Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA) recently posted a comment letter on the SEC web site regarding JOBS Act implementation. The comment letter was in direct response to the recommendations provided by the Investor Advisory Committee (IAC) who recently met – reviewing their requests for JOBS Act implementation. CFIRA is a group of industry advocates and participants that have consistently championed the benefits of investment crowdfunding. The IAC is a committee established under the Dodd-Frank Act to advise the SEC.
This specific letter, co-signed by CFIRA board members Scott Purcell and Kim Wales, challenged several of the requests by the IAC – an entity that has not been known for their support of crowd funding.
