In September 2014, Loadstar Capital released OwnersBook, Japan's first real estate crowdfunding platform. Since then, we have operated a business model in which the funds invested by an unspecified number of investors through OwnersBook via the Internet are invested in loans with real estate mortgages. The unique feature of this model is that it allows individual investors to participate in real estate investment with as little as 10,000 yen. Thus far, we have raised the full subscription amount for each property, with the cumulative amount invested exceeding 8,400 million yen.
Loadstar Capital's team includes several experienced members who have built careers on the front lines of the real estate finance industry, including licensed real estate appraisers. All of the properties listed in OwnersBook are carefully selected by these professionals. In the years to come, we will further expand our product lineup, offering individual investors the chance to further invest in high quality transactions that would also satisfy institutional investors, even with a little amount of money. We are aiming to lower the barriers among investors.
