Andy Murray reveals his 2016 Seedrs investments

CrowdfundingWorld tennis number two, Andy Murray, has made his first investments for 2016 using the equity crowdfunding platform, Seedrs, which he supported last year, along with fund manager Neil Woodford.

Seedrs says that Murray has identified five companies this year that he’s willing to invest in.

They are: Oppo Icecream; the annual travel ticket subscription service CommuterClub; peer-to-peer lender Landbay (which recently signed a partnership deal with property website Zoopla); film streaming platform We Are Colony; and Readbug, which has been dubbed the ‘Netflix for magazines’.

Seedrs platform has reached £100 million (€127 million) in cash for investment and Jeff Lynn, chief executive officer and co-founder of Seedrs, says the platform is now the most active seed-stage equity investor in the UK.

Murray has been beaten by Novak Djokovic in three of his five Australian Open final defeats.
