New company name "LINUS Digital Finance" - 250 million euros in new co-investor funds by the end of 2021 - New investments every two weeks - Doubling of the number of employees
The Berlin-based real estate investment company LINUS Capital will in the future operate under the name "LINUS Digital Finance" and will finance the expansion of its own online platform with a medium amount of millions. Via the digital portal www.linus-finance.com experienced investors participate directly in high-yield real estate projects. A large part of the money will flow into the expansion of the technical infrastructure and the marketing of the digital investment platform. New offers for investors are also being developed.
In addition, LINUS will significantly increase the number of investments, as CEO David Neuhoff explains: "Three new co-investments with a total volume of 15 million euros will be launched via our online platform in November. In the future, we will make new projects available to our investors in two-week intervals". By the end of 2021, LINUS intends to collect a total of more than 250 million euros in co-investment funds via the digital portal.
In order to achieve this goal, LINUS is expanding its own team of experts: "We are putting together a powerful team, especially in the areas of sales, tech and marketing, in order to be able to drive growth accordingly," confirms David Neuhoff. Another new member is Tobias Walitschek, who is now Head of Marketing for LINUS. Currently, 26 people work for the Berlin real estate investment company. According to Pederzani, by the end of 2021 there will be more than 50.
LINUS does not only act as an intermediary in real estate projects, but always acts as an anchor investor itself. "We examine very carefully which engagements are suitable for us and our co-investors", David Neuhoff emphasizes. Private investors can then invest from an amount of 200,000 euros upwards; repayment is made within 12 to 36 months. The investment focus is on residential, office and logistics developments as well as concession properties.
Via the LINUS online platform, investors receive detailed information on the respective commitments, on the basis of which they can make well-founded investment decisions. "Our investors have access to detailed descriptions and figures on the respective property as well as access to a proper data room. They are looked after by us via the online platform just like professional investors," says the LINUS CEO.
LINUS Digital Finance finances real estate projects with debt and mezzanine capital. The Berlin-based company always acts as an anchor investor in its mezzanine and whole-loan investments. LINUS enables experienced private and institutional investors to participate in the investments made by a self-managed debt fund. The term of the loans is usually between 12 and 36 months. As a capital management company (KVG), LINUS is supervised by Bafin and, together with co-investors, has invested a total of around 500 million euros in capital in real estate projects since its foundation, thus financing a project volume of over 1.5 billion euros.
