I am thrilled to announce that as of today Fundrise has received commitments of more than $100M of investment capital from six institutional funds.

Institutional investors have turned to Fundrise because of our success in tapping into the power of the crowd to originate deal flow at a lower cost. These funds intend to utilize the Fundrise platform to invest in real estate projects over the next year in a number of major markets around the country.

What Does This Mean For You As An Investor?

For the first time ever, you can invest side-by-side with billion-dollar institutions, giving you:

Institutional Rigor in Underwriting

Individual investors on Fundrise will be able to invest in the same institutional quality real estate projects, in the same positions, with the same interest rates, as institutional funds and family offices.

Because of their size, institutions have historically invested in only the highest quality investments—that individuals could not normally access. With Fundrise, this is going to change.

Access to Bigger Deals

Pooling funds from individuals with those of major institutions creates a sizable capital base.

Having more capital not only gives us leverage in negotiating the best terms for our investors, but also allows us to participate in larger, more iconic projects in the country’s top markets.

Access to the Same Deals as Major Hedge Funds Without Their Fees

You’ll invest in the same quality investments as you would through a top institutional fund, but with lower minimums and, most importantly, with lower fees:

fee comparison We believe that these changes will substantially add value for our investors, by adding volume and more options to diversify into the highest quality projects.
