Global Alternatives launches ‘property crowdfunding 2.0’


Global Alternatives, an owner-operator of cross-border marketplaces for alternative investments, has opened the first deal for crowdfunding on its re-launched Property Crowd platform.

The platform is offering professional investors and HNWIs an 11.2 per cent IRR via investment in a bond issue with pass-through exposure to a short-term senior loan. The loan has a conservative loan-to-value (LTV) and is secured against an investment grade, Grade II listed asset in Greater London.
The deal is co-funded with an experienced principal lender which has undertaken full due-diligence and credit underwriting in its role as origination partner. The investment further benefits from Global Alternatives’ proprietary, cross-border, regulation-compliant infrastructure for private securities that leverages the platform’s panel of exclusive institutional partners.
The Global Alternatives Prime Custodian Model is designed to provide investors with the transactional integrity and custodial safeguards associated with publicly-listed securities, thus transforming investment practice in the alternative finance arena. The minimum investment is GBP5,000.
Later this year, Global Alternatives aims to provide investors with the real-time liquidity of an exchange order book by establishing a cross-border property trading exchange, bringing together Property Crowd’s professionally crowdfunded assets with private equity and debt issues backed by investment grade, global real estate assets from the institutional sector.
Rohin Modasia, founder and CEO, Global Alternatives, says: “The quality of this deal reflects the quality of our proposition. In the seemingly perpetual low-yield environment of today, assets that offer higher yields, capital preservation and shorter maturities are unquestionably attractive. Such superior risk-adjusted returns are near impossible to find in the market at present and we are delighted to bring this opportunity to the professional investor market as the first of many to come.”
“We see the next step in the evolution of crowdfunding being the manifestation of our vision: a cross-border secondary market with liquidity generated from the trading activity of an international investor base and dedicated market-makers, rather than the finite balance sheet of any single sponsoring platform.”
