Connected Investors consolidates investment funding with new platform

Connected Investors, the popular real estate investing networking, has just unveiled the country’s first centralized real estate investment funding platform at The platform brings together a network of asset-based lenders that investors can submit proposals to in order to get the best possible terms on their loans.

Ross Hamilton, founder and CEO of Connected Investors, said is designed to serve the growing number of hedge funds, hard money companies, private lenders and real estate crowdfunding portals that are looking to invest capital into real estate.

The site relies on a unique algorithm that aims to match loan applicants with the perfect lender, streamlining the entire process for both lender and borrower.

The platform has already secured the attention of several big players in the online investment capital marketplace, most notably The platform “fills a critical gap in the marketplace connecting alternative capital resources to real estate investors,” explained’s CEO Jilliene Helman.
