New York, September 13, 2018
MG Capital, the premier real estate private equity investment manager specializing in Manhattan luxury residential properties, announced today a partnership with CrowdStreet, the largest commercial real estate investment marketplace providing over 40,000 individual investors direct access to institutional-quality commercial real estate investments. CrowdStreet users will now be able to invest in MG Capital Fund IV through CrowdStreet’s online marketplace.
“Crowdfunding is a growing segment of real estate investing and we are thrilled to be affiliated with such an expansive platform as CrowdStreet,” said Eric Malley, Founder & CEO of MG Capital. “Through our partnership, we will be able to offer our institutional-quality investment products to a wide range of individual retail investors looking to diversify their personal portfolios with real estate investments.”
The partnership will enable CrowdStreet investors to hold an equity interest in recurring rental income streams derived from hundreds of MG-AAA rated, fair-market corporate tenants, through a passive real estate investment that is 100% collateralized by debt-free, residential properties. In addition to following a debt-free strategy, MG Capital utilizes time-tested predictive analytics to select investments and ensure consistent year-over-year growth. Its adherence to a debt-free, data-based investment approach coupled with its corporate tenant model eliminate many of the traditional risks associated with residential real estate investments.
"At CrowdStreet, we exclusively work with leading sponsors on commercial real estate offerings that meet our strict marketplace requirements to provide our investors with institutional-quality options," said Ian Formigle, Vice President of Investments at CrowdStreet. "As a tenured sponsor with over $1B in transactions, we are pleased to partner with MG Capital on their first CrowdStreet marketplace offering."
