BullsBridge Capital allows accredited investors to invest alongside BullsBridge and experienced Sponsors in pre-screened, institutional quality real estate investments. We seek to align interests and provide access to insightful BullsBridge analysis to make it easier for investors to browse deals online, review deal documents, and make better informed investment decisions 24/7 via an online platform. We also make it easier for Sponsors to fully fund their real estate investment opportunities by marketing those opportunities to our diverse investor base.
The BullsBridge platform covers direct investments across the capital
stack including equity, preferred equity, mezzanine, and bridge investments. We
only post what we understand to be institutional quality investments on our platform
once both the investment and the Sponsor have gone through our rigorous due
diligence process to help ensure that only the highest quality deals are
offered to investors. We invest across most asset types including multi-family,
office, retail, and industrial.
When you invest using the BullsBridge Platform, you ordinarily will own
shares in a limited liability company (LLC) which holds an interest (sometimes
indirectly) in the entity that owns the subject real estate. Companies making use of the platform
generally use a separate LLC for each investment, which can give investors a
degree of liability protection by shielding the liabilities from one project
from the liabilities of other projects.
No. When you contribute to a project, we simply help the applicable
issuer process payment authorization. After you are verified as a suitable
investor and all documents are signed, the money is moved to an escrow account.
If the project succeeds in meeting its financial goal, the money is then
transferred to the project. In the case that a project does not meet its
funding goal, unless the offering materials state otherwise, 100% of your funds
are returned directly to you.
Only accredited investors are allowed make use of the BullsBridge Platform to invest. An accredited investor is a type of investor defined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The definition of accredited investor includes: 1) Any natural person who had an individual income in excess of $200,000 in each of the two most recent years (or joint income with that person's spouse in excess of $300,000 in each of the two most recent years) and has a reasonable expectation of reaching the same income level in the current year; 2) Any natural person whose individual net worth, or joint net worth with that person's spouse, exceeds $1,000,000, excluding the value of the person’s primary residence; 3) Any organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, corporation, Massachusetts or similar business trust, or partnership, not formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the securities offered, with total assets in excess of $5,000,000; and 4) Any entity in which all of the equity owners are accredited investors. There are additional types of accredited investors that have not been listed here for brevity’s sake. The full definition of Accredited Investor may be found on the electronic code of federal regulations website (www.ecfr.gov) in Title 17, Chapter II, Part 230 (§230.501).
Certain investment opportunities may require a cooling off period of several days or weeks before you are allowed to view the investments on the BullsBridge Platform in detail or consummate any investment.
So as not to deem a listing to be a “general solicitation” or “general advertising” within the meaning of Rule 502(c) of Regulation D of SEC regulations, the SEC is of the belief that it is generally important that a "substantive" relationship exists between a potential investor (i.e. you) and the underlying company or an individual or entity acting on its behalf, in part to better facilitate a review of the potential investor’s (i.e. your) financial circumstances and sophistication level. The SEC also gives importance to when pro-active steps are taken to establish the relationship. The intent is that investors become familiar with our platform and that we understand an investor's suitability for making any investments on the platform before your account is “unlocked” and you can take certain steps toward making your first investment via the BullsBridge Platform.
BullsBridge Capital assists with most common investor communications and
management tasks. We can assist Sponsors in the logistics and practicalities of
pooling all investors into a single limited liability company (LLC) to further
manage investor relationships, which allows Sponsors to focus what they do best
- identifying and operating real estate assets.
To create an investment offering, please create an account and then submit an
application or navigate to Raise Capital > Submit Your
Application. After we receive your application, we will contact you to learn
more about your company and the investment opportunity. If you are approved as
a Sponsor, we will work with you to gather the necessary information on the
investment opportunity to complete our due diligence process. If your deal
meets our criteria, we will post the deal to our platform on your behalf.
Please note that you do not necessarily need to have an active deal to become
an approved Sponsor.
As an investor, you will generally receive a return on your investment
only when and if the company in which you have invested distributes money
either from cash flow or a capital event such as a refinancing or a sale,
unless the offering material provides additional liquidity events. Investment
opportunities posted on the BullsBridge Platform are private placements of
securities that are not publicly traded, that are illiquid, and that are
generally subject to holding period requirements. It is important to read the
applicable offering memorandum to better understand the expected holding
periods for each investment. It is also important to understand that your
investment is not insured by the FDIC or by any other federal governmental agency,
is not guaranteed by BullsBridge Capital, and may lose value.
Yes. All investors using the BullsBridge Platform must acknowledge and
accept the high risks associated with investing in private placement real
estate opportunities. Investment opportunities posted on this website are
private placements of securities that are not publicly traded, are subject to
holding period requirements, and are intended for investors who do not need a
liquid investment. Private placement investments are not bank deposits (and
thus not insured by the FDIC or by any other federal governmental agency), are
not guaranteed by BullsBridge Capital or any other entity or individual, and
may lose value. Risks include holding your investment for periods of many
months or years with limited ability to resell and losing your entire
investment. You must have the ability to bear a total loss of your investment
without a change in your lifestyle. All investors should make their own
determination of whether or not to make any investment, based on their own
independent evaluation and analysis and after consulting with their financial,
tax, and investment advisors.
