Problem Statement

  • Historically, real estate has not been accessible to many due to costly gatekeeper’s dynamics. It has been restricted to wealthy individuals and institutions due to large minimum investment amounts.
  • We strongly believe that home ownership rates will continue to deteriorate as millennials are less interested in indebting themselves to own a home, leading to many more renters, making residential real estate an attractive asset class. Large Asset managers and developers in the US and UK are already starting to accumulate multifamily homes based on this view.
  • An average person doesn’t have sufficient capital for appropriate allocation to real estate. For many, it becomes a concentrated asset in their portfolio, increasing their risk and inability to maintain their wealth through cycles.

So, how do 410 million people in the Middle East access the most popular asset class without significant capital?

About SmartCrowd

Risks

Investing in private placements and early-stage startups can be very rewarding, but it involves risks, including loss of capital, illiquidity, lack of dividends, and dilution. Jibrel is targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand these risks and make their own investment decisions. You will only be able to invest via Jibrel once you are registered as sufficiently sophisticated.
