New CRE Platform Allows Investors To Set It And Forget It
San Francisco-based AlphaFlow has launched the first automated real estate investment service of its kind. The firm, which specializes in passive online real estate investment, now offers AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios — where it will build, manage and rebalance a portfolio of 75 to 100 real estate loans for investors. It is basically a "set it and forget it" service for real estate investors.
“For the first time, investors can 100% passively invest in a diversified real estate portfolio at any time. It is ultimately a simpler, more intelligent way to invest in real estate,” AlphaFlow CEO Ray Sturm said. “Our investors were happy with their returns, but we weren’t meeting all of their needs, so we stepped back and designed a new platform from the ground up.”
AlphaFlow was established in 2016 to provide funds that allow investors to participate in loans across multiple real estate crowdfunding platforms with a single investment. AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios offers daily portfolio rebalancing that automatically reviews portfolios on a daily basis for opportunities to reallocate investment to increase diversification.
Portfolios can be built with as little as $10K with a low fee, according to AlphaFlow co-founder and chief technology officer Bogdan Cirlig. The firm uses analytics and technology to create an automated investing experience.
“AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios represent a large step in bringing robo-investing to real estate for the first time,” Cirlig said.
AlphaFlow’s platform is a response to the fairly limited options for passive investors. The company expects all investors will have some type of real estate in their investment portfolio in the next 10 years.
