Walliance is Italy's first crowdfunding site for real estate. They guarantee Italian real estate savers investment opportunities starting at €500 and give sector operators an effective and clear way to collect money. The project was created from a simple but revolutionary idea: taming the technological and financial innovations the global economy is undergoing (first of all crowdfunding), breaking down barriers for entering a traditionally prohibitive for the small-medium saver investment sector. Since September 2017, they have been operating in the Italian market, but their past is deeply ingrained. For years, Bertoldi Group, a family-owned business from which Walliance originated, has positioned itself in the property market, making sure they excel in property management, advisory and real estate investments. To these, the Fintech industry has added various stocks, among which is Crowdcube - the world leader in equity crowdfunding.
Since its first steps, we have closely watched Italian crowdfunding unfold, assessing its growth potential. At the same time, despite the decline in 2008, we were aware of the Real Estate sector's historic performance: what better scope for crowdfunding than an investment sector that has historically been among the best-performing? Thus, the long path to adapt the initial insight to the strict Italian regulations started, rewarded by the CONSOB with the license to function on the national market as the first Real Estate equity crowdfunding site.
At the time of this writing, Forbes estimates that the worldwide market for crowdfunding Real Estate equity has reached $4.3+ billion and is set to reach $300 billion by 2025. With real estate developments in Trento, Milan and New York, Walliance have put themselves on the Italian area, earning 1,6 million euros in four months, between registrations and pre-registration. At the end of 2017, Walliance completed a €750k investment round, looking optimistically at the European Commission's maneuvers to create a unified investment-based crowdfunding market: the international ascent has just begun.
