Founders Capital Ltd
In 2013 a group of real estate and fintech experts based in Tallinn, Estonia had a bright idea. What if they could break down the barriers which ensured that investing in secured property loans was a luxury only available to the wealthy and well-connected? And what if they could help entrepreneurs and visionaries in the property development business who struggle with the ‘one-size-fits all’ solutions offered by banks and major financial institutions at the same time?
Thus EstateGuru was born.
Today, more than half a decade later, we have facilitated more than 510 loans, worth in excess of €80 million. Over 15,500 investors, from all walks of life and hailing from 45 countries, have earned average returns of 12.25% by backing property loans in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Spain, and Finland with the UK, Ireland and Portugal to follow soon.
Due to the large and diversified investor base, with millions of EUR available to lend, our borrowers can get the money they need to realise their plans quickly, on their own terms, investors can access pre-vetted and diversified, cross-border investment opportunities with a low barrier to entry and total transparency.
We all have a real estate guru within, that part of us that can identify a great project and a promising investment opportunity when we see it. This guru knows that property is a great investment and good property investment opportunities can be found in every market.
But until now, most of us had to be content with dreaming. Without millions in the bank, you simply had no opportunity to invest in property beyond your own house or apartment.
We set about changing this.
We believe that everyone should be allowed to develop their inner guru, regardless of where they’re from or how wealthy they already are, which is why we facilitate investments from as little as €50.
We also believe that great projects deserve to be backed and that this backing should be fair, transparent and mutually beneficial to the investor and the borrower. Our team of seasoned real estate professionals are there to support our borrowers every step of the way while ensuring that we choose only the best, most secure projects for our investors.
This is EstateGuru – a marketplace that is fair, honest, and where everyone wins.
