Patch of Land – WealthForge
Patch of Land and WealthForge today announced a collaboration to help make online real estate investing, specifically into real estate loans, more accessible for accredited investors. Patch of Land, which to date has funded more than $2.3 million in real estate transactions through a mix of its own pre-funding mechanism and accredited investors is working with WealthForge as its broker-dealer. WealthForge, which helps enable online private investments in a variety of industries, provides its clients with the technology and oversight needed to complete transactions within Securities & Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulations.
“Working with WealthForge provides an added level of oversight for our clients, ensuring our investment offerings are 100% compliant,” says Jason Fritton, COO and Co-Founder of Patch of Land. “The partnership frees up more time and energy to investigate and select the best real estate opportunities for our investors, and that’s the right place for our focus.” “Patch of Land is experiencing tremendous growth – funding 10 properties in just 7 months. As we continue to expand our investor community and our focus on high-yield, asset-backed, real estate debt, we felt it necessary to align with an established broker-dealer fully capable of handling our increasing volume levels in accordance with all SEC regulations.”
“Patch of Land is an online real estate venue for accredited investors at the forefront of a highly successful space,” said Mat Dellorso, co-founder and CEO of WealthForge. “As it continues to satisfy investors and rebuild communities in the process, we are onboard to be the back-end pipeline that supports its growth, facilitating each investment in accordance with the proper regulations.
