Crowd for Angels aims to always provide investors with the very best customer service. We will always try to resolve any issue you have quickly and positively. We encourage you to call or email so we can help to solve your issues.

Our complaints process

When we receive a complaint we will take the following steps towards resolving it:

  • By the close of business on the next working day - we will send you a written acknowledgement of the complaint. A dedicated member of our compliance team will then work on investigating your complaint.
  • Within 3 working days - we aim to resolve complaints by close of business on the 3rd business day following the day on which the complaint is received. At this stage we aim to provide a response and/or offer appropriate redress by way of an apology or financial compensation. However, some more complex issues could take longer. If we have not been able to reach a conclusion within this time we will write to you explaining the reasons why and we will tell you when we expect to be able to reach a conclusion.
  • Within 4 weeks of receipt of your complaint - we either send you a final response or a holding response if the investigation has not been resolved. The holding response must explain why we are not yet in a position to resolve the complaint and will indicate when we will make further contact. If we send a final response we will provide an explanation of the action we took, including any advice given to us, as a means towards resolving the complaint. We may offer redress by way of an apology and compensation if appropriate.
  • Within 8 weeks from receipt of the original complaint - we will write to you with our final response or a response explaining why we are not in a position to make a final response, if the investigation has not been resolved. The final response letter will include:
    • Acceptance or rejection of the complaint.
    • Offer of redress or remedial actions if the complaint is accepted (this may mean an apology, and not only financial redress. Where financial redress is offered it should include a reasonable rate of interest) or details of why the complaint has been rejected.
    • Information in relation to how the complainant may refer the complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) if they remain unsatisfied with the outcome, and must do so within six months.
    • Inform the complainant that the firm will regard the complaint as settled if no further communication is received from the client.
  • If you have not received a reply from us that is satisfactory to you within 8 weeks, then you are entitled to refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service. If our final letter is not satisfactory you must let us know and we will provide you with a formal response.

Financial Ombudsman Service

As part of its statutory obligation, the FCA has established the Financial Ombudsman Service, a body which has the power to consider, arbitrate and settle complaints against authorised firms in the event that the parties concerned have been unable to resolve the matter between themselves.

If you make a complaint and we do not resolve it to your satisfaction you may have a right to complain directly to the Financial Ombudsman Service. Their address is Exchange Tower, Harbour Exchange, London, E14 9SR, and their website is at

You will remain entitled to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service for 6 months following receipt of our final response letter to you. After expiry of this period a complainant will be barred from referring the complaint to the FOS.

Risk Warning

Investment Risks

Investing in small public listed or private companies involves many risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and equity dilution. It should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Investing in debt pitches through Crowd for Angels (UK) Limited involves lending to companies and therefore your capital is at risk and interest payments are not guaranteed if the borrower defaults. Please click here to read the full Risk Warning.

Investor Suitability

Investments on this website are targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand the risks involved and make their own investment decisions. You will only be able to invest in pitches on this website once you are fully authorised and the investment is deemed appropriate for you.

Basis of Investment

Investments can only be made on the basis of information provided in pitches by the investee companies concerned. Crowd for Angels takes no responsibility for information provided by external sources, including investee company websites.

Forward Looking Statements & Forecasts

Pitches may contain forward looking statements and financial forecasts or projections. Forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance. Crowd for Angels makes no judgement or opinion of the likelihood of targets being achieved. 

Lack of FSCS Protection

Investments made in companies listed on the Crowd for Angels platform are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Tax Relief

The availability of any tax relief, including EIS and SEIS, depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and of the company concerned, and may be subject to change in the future. If you are in any doubt about the availability of any tax reliefs, or the tax treatment of your investment, you should obtain independent tax advice before proceeding with your investment.

Innovative Finance ISA

Holding an investment within an innovative finance ISA does not reduce the risks associated with an investment or guarantee returns and it is possible to lose all of the money invested.
