About PropShare

Real estate has historically been the asset class that has created the highest wealth for investors around the world. However, large capital investment, specialised investment knowledge, asset management capabilities and understanding of market cycles has restricted the asset class to institutional investors, ultra high net worth individuals, pension and sovereign funds.

 Property Share was founded by a team with deep experience in institutional real estate investing and technology with the aim to democratise real estate investing for ordinary investors by providing institutional quality analysis, asset management and liquidity at much lower investment thresholds.
