The real estate investments you find on BrickVest are private transactions that are not traded on public stock exchanges and cannot be sold to the public. Whilst you can advertise your investment for a sale to other BrickVest users at any point, there may not be anyone willing to buy your investment at a price that you deem reasonable (or buy it at all).

Prior to investing, you should consider the likelihood that you will be holding this investment for an extended period of time and this is a long-term investment. Investors should seek independent professional advice to ensure a real estate investment is suitable. BrickVest will facilitate secondary trading of fund interest in existing assets through a marketplace, however liquidity and a price cannot be guaranteed.

The terms of each investment with BrickVest are specific to each investment opportunity. Prospective investors should review in detail the offering documents provided for each investment opportunity.

BrickVest curates, underwrites and rates all selected investment opportunities through its proprietary investment process and provides investors with relevant information including: property information, market data, sponsor and project on-boarding and assessment. However BrickVest makes no recommendations on investments, and expects each investor to conduct his/her own due diligence before investing and to seek independent professional advice.

BrickVest will receive the payments either directly from the sponsor or from a third party servicing company and will remit such payments directly to investors through our online technology, net of any applicable servicing or processing fees.

BrickVest investments are typically fully funded upfront. However, in the event that an investment requires additional capital, the shortfall in capital may be funded by either the sponsor or new additional equity from existing and new investors, which would dilute existing investors on a pro-rata basis assuming they do not participate in this further round. Please review the treatment of additional capital requirements in the operating agreement for each investment before investing.

All investors have access to the BrickVest investor dashboard. Through the dashboard, investors can track how much has been invested, which transactions are active, and how much investors have earned on any investment to date. BrickVest will provide quarterly reports via both the investor dashboard and by email. In addition, deal sponsors may communicate directly to investor by posting updates regarding the status of the project on the online dashboard.

The typical investment period is generally 3 – 10 years, however this is only an indication.The investment period varies widely depending on the type of investment. The investment period and other milestones will be specified in the Investment Offering documentation.

REITs are typically large corporations that hold a wide variety of underlying real estate investments. REIT investors have no choice over the investments made by the REIT managers and there is less transparency about the underlying investment properties.

While REITs can provide worthwhile investment opportunities, we believe with BrickVest individuals can benefit from direct access to real estate investments by selecting the markets, locations and properties they prefer. Moreover, there is a large segment of the real estate investment market that is too small for REITs to address efficiently. This gap provides an opportunity for small and medium size real estate companies, which BrickVest investors benefit from.

You should check with your own company policy to ensure you are not prevented from investing and check whether you are required to disclose your investment activity.

Your returns are net of all corporate level taxes we incur at the investment level. As you are ultimately investing into a fund, you should seek your own tax advice, but we do not anticipate you will be subject to capital gains taxes local to the underlying real estate asset.

For instance, if you are a GBP account holder investing in a EUR denominated deal, a transfer in GBP will be converted to EUR at your bank’s latest offered exchange rate. Please check your bank’s foreign exchange rates if you want more information on the applicable rates/fees.
