The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published its Work Programme for 2015. The programme sets out how ESMA intends to achieve its statutory objectives of investor protection and stable and orderly functioning markets through its operational activities of convergence, risk monitoring and analysis, the single rulebook and supervision. The projected work programme is based on a budget of €38,639,000 and a staff base of 202 people as per the budget approved by ESMA’s Board of Supervisors on 6 February 2014 and subsequently submitted to the EU institutions. At the time of drafting, the budget prepared by the European Commission and sent to the EU Council and Parliament for ESMA in 2015 is for €33,627,920 and 186 people. In order to prepare for the eventuality that ESMA will receive fewer posts than planned for in the work programme, Annex 5 contains a list of the areas of work that ESMA would be unable to accomplish in 2015 with reduced resources.

Crowdfunding is a means of raising finance for projects from ‘the crowd’ often by means of an internet-based platform through which project owners ‘pitch’ their idea to potential backers, who are typically not professional investors.  It takes many forms, not all of which involve the potential for a financial return.  ESMA’s focus is on crowdfunding which involves investment, as distinct from donation, non-monetary reward or loan agreement.Crowdfunding is relatively young and business models are evolving. EU financial services rules were not designed with the industry in mind.  Within investment-based crowdfunding a range of different operational structures are used so it is not straightforward to map crowdfunding platforms’ activities to those regulated under EU legislation. Member States and NCAs have been working out how to treat crowdfunding, with some dealing with issues case-by-case, some seeking to clarify how crowdfunding fits into existing rules and others introducing specific requirements.To assist NCAs and market participants, and to promote regulatory and supervisory convergence, ESMA has assessed typical investment-based crowdfunding business models and how they could evolve, risks typically involved for project owners, investors and the platforms themselves and the likely components of an appropriate regulatory regime. ESMA then prepared a detailed analysis of how the typical business models map across to the existing EU legislation, set out in sections 1 to 6 of this document.
