Yielders, a property investment platform based in the UK, has successfully secured its initial £500,000 funding target on equity crowdfunding platform Seedrs. The funding round comes less than a year after Yielders closed on a pre-series A funding round. The platform is offering 4.76% of equity with a £10,004,118 pre-money valuation.
Founded in 2015, Yielders claims to be the real-estate investment platform that is the UK’s first Islamic finance-friendly fintech company, regulated by the FCA. The platform’s mission is to continue to lower the barriers of entry to a classically inaccessible asset class, with real-estate investment opportunities from as little as £100.
“We provide hassle-free property investments, with predefined lease agreements which offer users a steady income. Assets are expertly sourced in regions where there is strong projected capital appreciation, allowing investors to benefit from all aspects of a real-estate investment without any of the headaches of being a landlord.”
Yielders also reported that its platform has an existing range of “robust and reliable” live products, which have been delivering returns for its investors for more than three years.
“At Yielders, instead of charging interest on loans to deliver returns, we charge a flat platform and management fee. When the asset is sold, we charge a 15% profit share, aligning to the core ethical principles of fairly sharing in risk and reward. For high-net worth and ultra-high net worth investors, we offer 2.5% fees on structuring investment opportunities but an increased profit share of 15-30% dependent on asset sale price. By developing these strategies, we plan offer institutions large-scale equity-based projects at a competitive rate of a 2.5% structuring fee, and 15-30% profit share.”
Funds from the Seedrs round will be used for the following:
- Product development
- Invest in technology
- Addition of talent
- Enter Markets and Grow
