BrickVest, the London-based online real estate investment platform, has held the first closing of its second fundraising round at GBP2 million, raising total capital raised to date to GBP4 million.
The company is backed by 44 angel investors including real estate, finance and tech industry figures.
The founding team has an extensive experience in real estate, investment services and technology.
Twelve months after its launch, BrickVest has built a pan-European online crowd investing platform that allows its community of investors to invest directly and actively manage their investment in institutional grade commercial real estate investment opportunities from a low minimum investment amount with the ease of an online trading platform.
Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest, says: “2016 has been a very exciting year where both sponsors and investors have strongly backed our approach to democratise access to institutional real estate investments, in highly secured and low cost environment. We are pleased to have attracted institutional sponsors and trust of thousands of investors and family offices that are seeing BrickVest as a solution platform. In particular, strong interest has convinced the board to accelerate the development of our product range with the launch of dedicated products for larger ticket investors coupled with automated liquidity platform and risk rating analytics. This additional funding will enable us to continue investing in 2017 in our in-house technology and scaling our innovative platform in line with soaring levels of demand for accessible real estate investment.”
