The Next Big Thing in Crowdfunding

From the Credit Suisse Real Estate Market Research 2016.

Crowdfunding is nothing new. The pedestal of the Statue of Liberty was built using the financial resources of a large group of people – some donating substantial amounts, some donating less, all aiming to be a part of something bigger than one person alone.

However, what was once a way for a financially struggling government to raise funds has become a new, bona fide investment model. As the world becomes ever more interconnected, allows people to become a part of big projects they could never dream of as an individual. A theatre production, a new product – an impressive real estate portfolio.

It is a way to realise a dream. To attain aspirations and receive the emotional or financial returns that were previously only open to those with substantial capital behind them. Whether it’s publishing a book or building a hotel, crowdfunding puts the possibility of real investment at everybody’s fingertips, with real results and attractive terms.

What’s more, an investor can choose how their money is spent. Funds go directly into one specific project, investors can feel that they directly influenced a development, that they essentially own part of that dream real estate portfolio.
