SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlphaFlow, the leader in passive online real estate investment, today announced it has launched AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios. The company will build, manage, and rebalance a portfolio of 75-100 real estate loans for investors. This marks the first automated real estate investment service of its kind.
“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,” said Ray Sturm, CEO of AlphaFlow. “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 provides clients with a first-of-its-kind set it and forget it automated service to build and manage a real estate portfolio. The company’s founders have been at the forefront of the disruption in real estate investing. In 2013, Sturm co-founded RealtyShares, one of the largest real estate crowdfunding platforms. Three years later, AlphaFlow was the first to offer funds that allowed investors to participate in loans across multiple real estate crowdfunding platforms with a single investment. AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios bring similarly innovative benefits to investors, including daily portfolio rebalancing that automatically reviews portfolios on a daily basis for opportunities to reallocate investments in order to increase diversification.
“Investors on AlphaFlow can now build a diversified real estate portfolio backed by sophisticated financial with as little as $10k, all at a low fee. To do that, we use top-caliber analytics and technology to create an elegant automated investing experience,” said Bogdan Cirlig, AlphaFlow’s co-founder and CTO. “AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios represent a large step in bringing robo-investing to real estate for the first time.”
While many investors have embraced online equity investing, the real estate industry has traditionally been slow to change. As a result, the options available today are fairly limited for passive investors. AlphaFlow believes that in the next ten years, everyone will have some type of real estate in their investment portfolio.
“Thirty years ago, to trade stocks you might have needed to call your financial advisor at Dean Witter. Firms like E*Trade and Schwab changed that and made trading cheaper and easier for everyone. Today, robo-advisors like Wealthfront and Betterment are applying Jack Bogle’s lessons online with equity portfolios,” said Sturm. “AlphaFlow Managed Portfolios are a big step in bringing that same philosophy to real estate.”
AlphaFlow is the first and fastest-growing automated real estate investment service. The service combines advanced data analytics and innovative technology to provide investors with sophisticated investment management at affordable prices. AlphaFlow charges just 1% of AUM. Launched in May 2015, the company was founded by real estate industry veterans. AlphaFlow is based in San Francisco, CA. For more information please visit www.alphaflow.com.
