    Has anyone looked into crowdsourced developments? Can this be a thing that will work in the future?

    I guess it operates similar to a syndicate, but with a level of anonymity?

    Is there value here for investors or is it a spruik/pipedream?

    Happy to hear opinions/experience.

    Cheers,

    Depending on how it is structured, you do run the risk of such a venture being classed as a "managed investment scheme" and thus falling under the regulation of ASIC.

    If this were the case, you certainly couldn't advertise it online - not without a full PDS being made available and all the usual disclaimers required by ASIC being in place.

    Yeah, looked into this a while back. From what I know, syndicate is maximum 20 investors. Whereas crowd funding can have heaps more. I found a lot of information on estatebaron website.

    Seems a lot of development companies offer investment opportunities as funding
