CoInvestor provides first digital access for advisers into LendInvest's Real Estate Opportunity Fund

6 November 2017

CoInvestor, the alternative assets platform, has been chosen by LendInvest Capital as a preferred method for UK advisers to invest in its Luxembourg-domiciled Real Estate Opportunity Fund.

The £130 million lending fund offers investors the opportunity to participate in a diverse pool of real estate-backed loans originated and underwritten by LendInvest’s experienced underwriting team. The fund aims to deliver a sustainable, uncorrelated income yield to its investors with strong downside protection.

CoInvestor’s online platform streamlines access to LendInvest’s Real Estate Opportunity Fund for the growing number of advisory firms and investors allocating to alternative assets via the platform.

Funds in this rapidly growing asset class had previously been difficult to access directly for advisers with manual application processes that are both time consuming and complex.

Sam Plumptre, Chief Executive of CoInvestor, said: “We are delighted to be LendInvest Capital’s preferred channel for UK advisers to invest in their Opportunity Fund. This is yet another strong endorsement of our ability to make it easier for advisers and investors to access high quality alternative investments via our simple digital investment process.”

Carl Giannotta, Director, LendInvest Capital said: “This is an important new partnership that will give a broader pool of potential investors access to our strategy and give them a superior application process. The ability for UK financial advisers and investors to digitally
access the Real Estate Opportunity Fund for the first time promises to make the process simple and efficient.”

CoInvestor is bringing alternative assets into the mainstream with its ability to remove paperwork and allow advisers to allocate online. By applying digitally, advisers benefit from improved investor reporting and the ability to see their clients’ full range of alternative investments, all in one place, with unprecedented standardised performance information.

The Opportunity Fund is the first Luxembourg based fund available on CoInvestor. Luxembourg is an increasingly important domicile for UK private equity and real estate funds.

Last month, CoInvestor unveiled five major fund managers in the run-up to the height of the tax season: Albion Capital, Amati Global Investors, Blackfinch Investments, Stellar Asset Management and Unicorn Asset Management.
