Equity Multiple began as a way to make real estate investing accessible for those looking to diversify their portfolio without REITs or private property ownership.
Co-founders Marious Sjulsen and Charles Clinton each came with extensive experience in real estate investing. Sjulsen worked in private equity and real estate finance for almost two decades before joining forces with Clinton. Clinton worked as a real estate attorney for Simpson Thacher & Bartlett in his early career before co-founding Equity Multiple.
Equity Multiple has seen an average of 14.5 percent in its total returns with $78.5 million returned to investors since its opening in 2015.
Equity Multiple offers flexible investment options that are outlined below. Another great element of Equity Multiple is being able to invest with an IRA that is self-managed. Customers can also invest with an LLC, LP, or set up a joint account.
Equity Multiple’s niche is found in institutional commercial real estate, setting it apart from other real estate companies who focus on single-family, sub institutional, or noninstitutional investments. This means that Equity Multiple focuses on quality real estate projects that are large enough for investors to earn a measurable profit. All commercial real estate is managed and supervised by the Equity Multiple in-house team. Several of the real estate investment options include the following:
Equity Multiple receives many investment opportunities each but only accepts about five percent. The offers are thoroughly vetted, making sure that opportunities offered to customers are the best and most qualified.
Accounts with Equity Multiple can be set up in as little as five minutes. Once approved, investors can begin browsing listings and invest day-of.
Currently, only investors who are accredited are allowed to invest through Equity Multiple. An investor can be accredited if their net worth equals or exceeds $1 million, or if their income equals or exceeds $200,000 for each of the past two years, or $300,000 if filing with a spouse. For businesses, the threshold is $5 million. If you are an accredited investor, Equity Multiple can be a viable investment company. For those who are looking for smaller investment options and/or who are not accredited, other options may be more suitable.
