Transferring ownership of an investment

Can I transfer my investment to another investor or entity?

There are several reasons why you might want to transfer your investment to another investor. These reasons can include:

  • Divorce
  • Gift
  • Poor Investment Performance

Whatever the reason, the answer is: possibly, but not through the CrowdStreet platform. CrowdStreet is a direct-to-investor platform and not an asset sponsor, unless you have invested in a CrowdStreet Fund. Additionally, due to securities law, we cannot facilitate the sale or transfer of one investor’s position to another. 

Therefore, requesting a transfer of ownership for your investment will require the sponsor to get involved. Even then, the sponsor might not allow you to transfer your investment. It will depend on the investment and the sponsor.

Additionally, the person or entity you would like to transfer your investment to must be an accredited investor. There are also fees associated with the sponsor's counsel drafting the transfer agreement.

If you want to attempt to transfer your investment:

  1. Reach out to the sponsor and CrowdStreet via the Ask A Question box in your Investor Room to determine if a transfer is possible, what their requirements are, and if paperwork is needed to update. Note: A transfer might not be possible. If possible, a fee may be required.
  2. If transferring your investment is possible based on the sponsor’s response, take whatever actions are needed to meet the transfer requirements. This could be documentation, etc. 
  3. Create a new Investing Account that you want to transfer ownership to.
  4. Once paperwork is updated to reflect the new Investing Account, reply to the email thread started with Ask a Question, or send a new email to help@crowdstreet.com. CrowdStreet Customer Relations can update the CrowdStreet portal on your behalf. 

What happens to my investment when I pass away?

When an investor passes away, those that are managing the estate will generally need to provide the asset sponsor and/or CrowdStreet proof of death so that arrangements can be made to update the legal ownership for the position. Please reach out to CrowdStreet Investor Relations should you need more information: help@crowdstreet.com.
