Association of Corporate Counsel Annual Meeting 2016: Real Estate & Crowdfunding

  • San Francisco, CA

Crowdfunding platforms have changed real estate investment by enabling individual investors to participate in direct real estate investments that had historically been limited to institutional and high net worth investors. The number of real estate investments being orchestrated through crowdfunding has increased exponentially since the passage of the US JOBS Act in 2012, and the number of platforms offering crowdfunding access to real estate investments has tripled over the past year. Join this session to discuss the anatomy of a deal from both the borrower’s perspective and the crowdfunding operator’s perspective. Faculty willreview and compare the requirements for Regulation D, Regulation CF, and Regulation A+ offerings (also known as Title II, III, and IV, respectively) as they relate specifically to real estate crowdfunding. The panel will also discuss and provide you with the tools to navigate the regulatory compliance regime governing this cutting-edge source of capital.
