The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is responsible for regulating the securities industry and overseeing broker-dealers in the United States. Part of this responsibility includes granting licenses to firms that want to operate as crowdfunding portals under Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF), which is a set of rules issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that allows small businesses to raise capital from a large number of investors through the internet. Because Reg CF is a federal regulation, it is up to FINRA to ensure that firms seeking to operate as crowdfunding portals meet the necessary requirements and are in compliance with the rules set forth by the SEC.
