CrowdStreet Capital Disclosure
IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES AND DISCLAIMERS
You are viewing the website for CrowdStreet Capital LLC (“CrowdStreet Capital”). CrowdStreet Capital LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of CrowdStreet, Inc., a Delaware corporation established in 2013 (“CrowdStreet”). CrowdStreet maintains a commercial real estate investor technology platform through which companies that develop and own commercial real estate, known as the “sponsors” of investment opportunities (the “Sponsor(s)”), offer investment opportunities to qualified investors. CrowdStreet also provides technology and services to developers, owners, and managers of commercial real estate assets.
Investment opportunities posted on the site can be accessed by investors via two means:
- Direct investing via an online marketplace (the “CrowdStreet Marketplace” or the “Marketplace”); or
- Opening a Private Managed Account with CrowdStreet’s investment advisor affiliate CrowdStreet Capital.
With the exception of CrowdStreet Capital, no affiliate of CrowdStreet, Inc., including without limitation investment opportunities offered on the Marketplace, provides investment advice. CrowdStreet Capital provides investment advice under a valid Advisory Services Agreement between the investor and CrowdStreet Capital. Any representation or implication to the contrary is expressly disclaimed. You should consult your own legal, accounting, investment, and tax experts before using any services provided by this website, the Marketplace, or CrowdStreet Capital, or any other affiliate of CrowdStreet.
CrowdStreet does not endorse any of the opportunities that appear on the Marketplace or in the general information available to the public on this website, nor does the Marketplace make any recommendations regarding the appropriateness of particular opportunities for any Investor. Use of the Marketplace does not constitute an offer by CrowdStreet to sell, solicit, or make an offer to buy any securities investment interest, and with the exception of CrowdStreet Capital clients, CrowdStreet does not give or offer any business advice, investment advice, tax advice, or legal advice to anyone using the Marketplace or in the general information available to the public on this website. CrowdStreet, Inc. is not a registered broker-dealer, investment advisor, or crowdfunding portal, and through its publicly available webpages and the Marketplace it does not engage in any conduct requiring such registrations. A complete list of CrowdStreet Marketplace opportunities presented in the past 12+ months, along with available performance projections on those opportunities, if any, is available here: https://app.crowdstreet.com/properties/
CrowdStreet Capital LLC is a Delaware limited liability company, has been in business since 2018, and has an application pending as a Registered Investment Advisor with the State of Oregon, pursuant to the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and Oregon securities regulations. General information available to the public on the CrowdStreet website or the Marketplace with its related offerings should NOT be confused with or attributed to CrowdStreet Capital. Information on CrowdStreet Capital’s products and services can be viewed here: www.crowdstreet.com/managed-accounts. You can review CrowdStreet Capital’s Form ADV filing with FINRA here.
With an application pending as an Oregon Registered Investment Advisor, CrowdStreet Capital is subject to certain Oregon and federal regulations concerning advertising and promotion of its products and services. Nothing posted or shown on the CrowdStreet Marketplace webpages, or the CrowdStreet.com website, should in any way be construed to represent an indication of or imply future performance on any product or service of CrowdStreet Capital. No testimonial or reference to CrowdStreet, the CrowdStreet Marketplace, or any technology or support services for Sponsors offered by CrowdStreet, by any third party or any non- affiliate of CrowdStreet should in any way be construed to represent an endorsement of CrowdStreet Capital or its products or services.
Generally all prospective investors must certify that they are Accredited Investors, as defined by Rule 501 of Regulation D in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or Qualified Purchasers, as defined by the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. In each case, all prospective investors certifying that they are either an Accredited Investor or a Qualified Purchaser must provide either supporting documents or third-party verification of such status, certify they are eligible for this type of illiquid investment, and must acknowledge that they have received and read all investment materials. YOU MUST BE AN ACCREDITED INVESTOR OR QUALIFIED PURCHASER TO INVEST IN ANY OFFERING POSTED ON THE MARKETPLACE OR OFFERED BY CROWDSTREET CAPITAL. WE ARE ENTITLED TO AND WILL RELY UPON YOUR REPRESENTATIONS. You agree that, should any material changes occur that might affect your status as an Accredited Investor or Qualified Purchaser, you shall immediately provide us with such information in writing. Non-Accredited Investors may invest only in offerings offered under Regulation A+ of the Securities Act of 1933.
If you choose to invest in any of the investments made available via the CrowdStreet Marketplace or by CrowdStreet Capital, you will enter into various agreements regarding the investments (the “Investment Documents”) between you and the CrowdStreet entity or Sponsor offering such investments. In all events, the commercial transactions which are the subject of the Investment Documents are governed by such Investment Documents and not these terms, and in the event of any conflict between the terms of the Investment Documents and these terms, the Investment Documents will control. We reserve the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend any investment opportunity offered on the CrowdStreet Marketplace or by CrowdStreet Capital and are not liable for any damages as a result of any of these actions. Our policy is not to comment on the reasons for any of these actions, if taken.
Direct and indirect purchase of real property involves significant risks, including without limitation market risks, risk related to sale of land, and risks specific to a given property. The securities offerings posted on the website are speculative. Investments posted on any CrowdStreet webpages are NOT insured by the FDIC or by any other Federal Government Agency, are NOT bank deposits, are NOT guaranteed by CrowdStreet, and MAY lose value. Neither the information nor any opinion expressed on any CrowdStreet web pages, including without limitation the CrowdStreet Marketplace, shall be construed as an offer to buy, or the solicitation of an offer to sell, any securities. Investments can and do lose money and you should be prepared to lose your entire investment in any investment made available on the CrowdStreet Marketplace or by CrowdStreet Capital. Neither the SEC nor any federal or state securities commission or regulatory authority has recommended or approved any investment or reviewed the accuracy or completeness of any of the information or materials posted on the website. Neither CrowdStreet nor any of its directors, officers, employees, representatives, affiliates, or agents shall have any liability whatsoever arising from any error or incompleteness of fact or opinion in, or lack of care in the preparation or publication of, the materials and communication herein or that the valuation of any securities offering is appropriate. Prior performance and/or results are not indicative of future performance and “forward-looking statements” may be published on the website; actual results may vary materially. All investors using the CrowdStreet Marketplace or investing in CrowdStreet Capital investment funds must make their own determination of whether or not to make any investment, based on their own independent evaluation of the investment and their risk tolerance. The investment opportunities mentioned on the CrowdStreet Marketplace or offered by CrowdStreet Capital may often have tax consequences; therefore, it is important to bear in mind that we do not provide tax advice. The levels and bases of taxation can change. Investors’ tax affairs are their own responsibility and investors should consult their own attorneys or other tax advisors in order to understand the tax consequences of any investments mentioned on the CrowdStreet Marketplace or offered by CrowdStreet Capital.
Distributions will vary and will depend upon rent, vacancies, property sales, and the terms of the relevant Investment Documents. Fluctuations in the value of the asset are to be expected. Additional risks exist due to leverage, property operations, and environmental liabilities. There is a potential for loss of part or ALL of your investment capital, and all investments require high risk tolerance, low liquidity need, and long-term commitments by the investor. Any financial projections or returns shown on any CrowdStreet webpages are illustrative examples only, and there can be no assurance that any valuations provided are accurate or in agreement with market or industry valuations. Offers to sell, or the solicitations of offers to buy, any security can only be made through the relevant Investment Documents that contain important information about risks, fees, and expenses.

As you browse CrowdStreet Capital’s and other websites, online ad networks we work with may place anonymous cookies on your computer, and use similar technologies, in order to understand your interests based on your (anonymous) online activities, and thus to tailor more relevant ads to you. If you do not wish to receive such tailored advertising, email firstname.lastname@example.org to opt out of most companies that engage in such advertising. (This will not prevent you from seeing ads; the ads simply will not be delivered through these targeting methods.)

You are not required to share your Profile or any other information with other Users. If you do share your Profile, anyone you designate will be able to see what companies you are following and investing in. If you indicate an interest in making an investment through the Services, such as indicating an interest to buy equity or make a loan in a particular private real estate company, we will notify the party or parties offering the investment (the “Issuer”) of your interest and may notify other Users with whom you have chosen to share information. By indicating an interest in an investment and/or sharing your Profile with other Users, you consent to this disclosure of your information.
