Manage Investors And Their Investments With Investment Management Software
The growth of online crowdfunding real estate marketplaces has offered developers and operators the ability to extend their reach beyond their personal contacts, connecting with accredited, high-net-worth individual (HNWI) investors across the country. Instead of dedicating valuable time to steak dinners and customized sales pitches, or endlessly shopping properties to traditional lending institutions—CRE firms are tapping into the digital network of a credible partner—reaching tens of thousands of potential investors in minutes. This mass reach has created a need for reliable and well designed investment management software.
Over 12% of HNWIs used online crowdfunding solutions to invest in commercial real estate in 2016, and that number is growing as adoption of alternative methods of investing and raising capital online accelerates. But access to a new source of funding isn’t the only reason forward-looking CRE firms are turning to fintech partners. They’re also exploring how these companies can help them go beyond Excel spreadsheets, Outlook, Dropbox and simple customer relationship management (CRM) solutions, with online software designed to automate the entire investment lifecycle, driving efficiencies while saving them time and money.
