Charlotte, NC: Investor Management Services (IMS) and RealCrowd are teaming up to meet the growing needs of their respective clients, aiming to provide a seamless end-to-end process for raising capital online and managing investors throughout the life cycle of their transactions.
IMS, the leader for commercial real estate firms to manage their investors and assets and the only complete solution for investor management, identified a best-in-class partner in RealCrowd, the leader in real estate equity crowdfunding, providing access to quality real estate investments across the nation. Commercial real estate sponsors and their investors will have a seamless and integrated online experience during the fund-raising process through the full lifecycle of the investment.
“By establishing a partnership with RealCrowd, our clients will have access to an investor base throughout the world that they would not otherwise have a relationship with,” says Ron Rossi, Vice President of Business Development at IMS. “CRE sponsors have had continued success with crowdfunding, and the execution is very efficient – especially when working with a team like RealCrowd that has deep real estate and finance experience.”
“The expectations and demands in the industry have changed; crowdfunding is no longer viewed as an experiment on the side but has become an integral part of the overall capital stack,” adds Adam Hooper, CEO of RealCrowd. “Investors will continue to allocate capital to real estate and expect access to transparent reporting of their investment performance through IMS’ investor portal.”
The commercial real estate industry has benefited tremendously from the JOBS Act as well as the demographic shift of investors. The internet and crowdfunding have disrupted the industry and have enabled individuals to invest in real estate, startups and businesses. Millennials, the most tech-savvy generation, make up the largest percentage of the overall investor base. They demand transparency and access to data in real-time.
RealCrowd and IMS are meeting these demands and transforming the real estate industry through innovation that adds value to our respective clients.
