Block Funds Aims to Empower Investors with Launch Of New Online Investment Platform

KANSAS CITY, Mo --- June 15, 2016 --- Block Funds is inviting accredited and institutional investors to explore opportunities in institutional-quality commercial real estate on their newly launched investor portal, www.blockfunds.com.  Through the new platform, qualified investors will have access to investment offerings in office, retail, medical, warehouse and multifamily properties. These well-sourced opportunities meet a broad range of investment objectives and risk profiles, including income, capital appreciation or a combination of both. The site will enable investors to make an appropriate allocation to the private real estate space alongside a well-established sponsor and its many institutional partners.

With recent advances in technology and the passage of the JOBS Act, many barriers to access these opportunities have been removed. Block Funds’ significant investment in this technology was intended to empower investors in today’s low-return environment by making it easier than ever to create a well-diversified portfolio of real estate assets.

“At Block Funds we believe that many investors have been greatly underserved historically, and as a consequence are under-invested in commercial real estate,” said Scott Smith, Director of Capital Markets at Block Funds. “We look forward to the opportunity to provide enhanced services to our existing relationships, and to empower accredited investors by providing access to a variety of carefully selected real estate investment opportunities.”

The primary goal of Block Funds is to preserve and protect our investors’ capital. The professionals at Block Funds adhere to a rigorous value creation process, which ensures that each investment realizes its full potential.  We are dedicated to sound market research and detail oriented asset management.

Block Funds invites qualified investors to register at www.blockfunds.com today to explore opportunities and begin building your private equity commercial real estate portfolio.
