The European Banking Authority (EBA) today published its final draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) specifying the information crowdfunding service providers shall provide to investors on the calculation of credit scores and prices of crowdfunding offers. 

As investors using crowdfunding platforms may be exposed to the risk of having insufficient information, and/or incomplete understanding of the viability of a crowdfunding project or of the due diligence conducted by the crowdfunding service providers, it is important that adequate information is disclosed to investors on how credit scores are calculated, and crowdfunding offers are priced. 

These final draft RTS specify the information that crowdfunding service providers shall disclose with respect to the method used to calculate credit scores assigned to crowdfunding projects and prices of crowdfunding offers, and how to ensure that loan pricing is indeed fair and appropriate. The final draft RTS also specify the information to be considered when conducting the creditworthiness assessment of project owners and crowdfunding projects.

Finally, the final draft RTS propose what policies and procedures crowdfunding service providers are required to have in place to ensure that investors are adequately informed, and that credit risk assessment and loan valuation are conducted in a sound and consistent manner.
