Direct or Nominee? The choice is yours.

Crowdcube offers both a direct or nominee structure, as well as combination of the two, so you can choose the model that's best suited to your business.

Direct
Direct
Investors become direct legal shareholders in your company, which may help you to foster a stronger relationship and advocacy for your brand.
Nominee
Nominee
With a nominee, Crowdcube holds and is the legal owner of the investment on behalf of your investors, so you have only one legal shareholder on your share register.
Direct and Nominee
