The Spanish Housers already has the green light from the Portuguese Securities Market Commission (CMVM) to operate in Portugal as a Participative Financing Platform (PFP) in the crowdfunding modality. The company is the first internationally to obtain this authorization in the country.
“The authorization from the Portuguese regulatory commission represents a huge boost for our company, in one of the markets where we have obtained a magnificent reception, with very positive investment returns and punctual return of capital and interest”, says Juan Antonio Balcázar, CEO of company of Spanish origin, in a statement.
Just over two years ago in the national market, Housers has already financed 19 real estate projects, with users of the platform investing more than six million euros. According to the company, 80% of this investment came from abroad. In Portugal, Housers has almost 10,000 users, with a total of over 115,000.
Housers, which is also present in Italy, is in a phase of capital expansion and has just expanded its activity to the areas of Corporate and Green, in order to expand the portfolio of investment alternatives for its users. The company emerged to support small investors (with availability from 50 euros) to maximize their savings in a market dominated by strong capital.
According to a statement, investors in the platform have already built or rehabilitated more than 850 properties in Spain, Italy and Portugal.
Housers has, since June 2017, a license from CNMV (Portuguese counterpart of CMVM), to operate in the modalities of equity and loans, in accordance with legislation 5/2015 of April 27 of the Fomento de la Financiación Empresarial de España
