UK Will Allow Crowd Bonds in IFISAs

The UK Treasury has announced it will allow crowd bonds in innovative finance individual savings accounts (IFISAs); crowd bond investors will invest in bonds of companies through crowdfunded platforms with their investments held in a tax sheltered account facilitated by the crowdfunding platform; the expansion of crowd bonds in IFISAs makes the crowdfunded investments more attractive because of the tax shelter, also providing greater benefits for an investment that’s not secured by the government’s FSCS protection.  Source
