Regulations Propel RECF Platforms Towards IPOs

After Lending Club’s IPO, it’s no wonder that RECF Platforms (real estate crowdfunding) are becoming more open to the idea of IPO’s. Lending Club had the largest tech IPO in 2014 valued at $5.4 Billion. In the real estate space, Ifunding has already opened shares in return for equity in their company.

Based on his own experience, Ifundings CEO, William Skelly predicts that the number of platforms will decrease to three or five. Even more so, that one or more could do an IPO successfully. Skelly says that the most innovative and successful platforms will be the ones backed by larger financial institutions. Thus, lead to an access of public markets for capital.

Key Takeaways of Shifting RECF Platforms

As any relatively new industry blooms, consolidation is inevitable. Here are some realities to keep in mind given this transition:

  • Real Estate Crowdfunding usually perceived as democratic, but in reality, Title III and Title IV are still in review. This means that the general public may not invest into these products.
  • IPO’s allow investor’s opportunity for increased liquidity.
