Real Estate has historically been one of the best performing asset classes to invest in, but currently it is costly and difficult for everyday investors to get access to good direct real estate investment opportunities. The only option for most people is expensive and indirect investment through funds or REITs.
CapitalRise was set up with a clear mission: To disrupt the old way of investing in property and give everyday investors easy and direct access to real estate investments of the finest quality that generate excellent returns. By eliminating the middlemen, CapitalRise enables you to earn much higher returns – typically from 8% - 12% per year.
How does CapitalRise do this
The team at CapitalRise have over 75 years of direct real estate investment experience between them. They scour the UK for only the finest quality real estate investment opportunities. Once they find an investment they think is suitable, it is put through a stringent and detailed due diligence and assessment process. Only the best projects pass this test and these are then placed onto the platform for you to invest in.
CapitalRise will invest its own money alongside yours into every deal we place onto the site. We prefer to demonstrate our confidence in the deals we select through actions such as these rather than words. Investors should have peace of mind knowing that we are co-investing with them.
CapitalRise was conceived by Alex Michelin and Andrew Dunn, who have spent the last 15 years acquiring, funding, developing and selling over £1bn of real estate in the most sought after locations in the UK and globally. During this time, they experienced first-hand how much time and money is wasted by both investors, in trying to get access to great real estate investments, and property entrepreneurs, in trying to raise funding. So they decide to create a solution and in 2015 created CapitalRise. Uma Rajah, with a wealth of experience in the financial technology sector joined as co-founder and CEO of CapitalRise and has built a highly experienced team to passionately pursue the company’s mission.
