NEW YORK, April 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Accrete, an alternative investment platform designed to unlock private investment opportunities for as many people as possible, will include real estate investment opportunities starting today . Initial investment opportunities will focus on commercial properties. The first opportunity will allow individuals to participate in the purchase of industrial property and last mile distribution facilities in the UK. The real estate portfolio will grow to include a diversified portfolio of multi-family, industrial, office and hotel properties in high-potential markets globally.
Accrete works with experienced and permanent sponsors to underwrite direct investment opportunities and with funds to unlock access to several alternative asset classes. Accrete launched with private equity, growth and credit assets on its direct and feeder fund platform, and now also includes real estate as an asset class. Accrete and its affiliated entities currently have over $800 million in assets under management. By working with sponsors and combining the investment power of its users, the platform offers these opportunities with minimum starting investments as low as $5,000.
“We are thrilled to unlock our first real estate investment opportunity for our members and are excited to be working with Urbium Capital Partners to bring this opportunity to market,” said Ali Shekofti, co-founder and CEO of Accrete.
“Urbium was created to create an exciting business and franchise in European real estate. We are very excited about our partnership with Accrete and aligned with Accrete’s mission to address inequalities in private capital markets and create more inclusive ecosystem for building wealth in real estate through our partnership,” says Suliman AlAujan, Managing Partner at Urbium Capital Partners.
Investing in real estate is one approach that investors can take to hedge against inflation, as historically property values appreciate over time along with the rate of inflation. Within commercial real estate, the sector of warehouses and industrial spaces is particularly in demand. Although long neglected, this type of asset has made a comeback due to the rise of e-commerce, especially after the Covid epidemic. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Industrial real estate activity, such as lease renewals and new leases, jumped 43% from April 15 to May 14 compared to the previous 30-day period.”
Each investment opportunity on Accrete is made possible by a sponsor with a proven track record in the specific asset class, and Urbium Capital backs Accrete’s first real estate opportunity. Urbium Capital was created in 2021 to empower and animate the urban environment. Urbium Capital’s team of professionals is focused on building an impact-driven real estate investment company. With an unrivaled network and track record, the group has the luxury of being selective in its dealings, offering exclusive investment opportunities to stakeholders.
In partnership with Accrete, Urbium is here to preserve and grow investor wealth while working to protect and grow our future.
