London PropTech firm BrickVest raises £2m from angel investors

Property investment

Real estate investment platform BrickVest has raised £2m from a number of angel investors, including Jean-Romain Lhomme, former co-head of Europe at Colony Capital.

This forms part of the PropTech firm’s latest financing round, which it has increased to £4m.

BrickVest received $1m in Seed funding back in April 2015 followed by an undisclosed amount of venture capital from Global Founders Capital in July of the same year. In April 2016, the startup raised a further £1m in venture funding.

The London-based firm has created a pan-European online crowd investing platform that allows its users to invest directly in real estate and actively manage these investments.

Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest, said: “We are pleased to have attracted institutional sponsors and trust of thousands of investors and family offices that are seeing BrickVest as a solution platform.”

He went on to say the firm plans to accelerate the development of its product range with the launch of “dedicated products for larger ticket investors coupled with automated liquidity platform and risk rating analytics”.

BrickVest’s founding team has a track record in real estate, investment services and technology. With 15 staff in total, the team includes alumni from Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, CBRE and Rocket Internet.

Jean-Romain Lhomme not only invested in this funding round, he also joined the company’s board. He said: “I invested into BrickVest because I believe the company is about to disrupt the model of how to invest in real estate around the globe from small private investors to large institutions.”
