Our marketplace lists investment opportunities ("deals") from a wide range of real estate investment firms, developers, and capital providers (‘Sponsors’). They all share our core requirements of extensive management expertise, niche sector experience and a focus on protecting investor capital. However, not all Sponsors are equal in terms of size, years of operating and assets under management (AUM).
