Sontowski & Partner Group are now lead investors at zinsbaustein.de

Berlin, 6. September 2018. The digital platform for real estate investment, zinsbaustein.de, is preparing for further growth. The Sontowski & Partner Group is expanding its commitment to zinsbaustein.de and, as lead investor, will continue its strategic development.

Since its foundation in 2016 by the Sontowski & Partner Group and finleap, zinsbaustein.de has brokered more than 25 million euros from over 3,000 crowd investors for the financing of high-quality real estate projects. In addition, several projects were financed via private placements in which wealthy customers provided project developers with capital, starting at EUR 50,000, as mezzanine loans. In principle, access to excellent real estate projects and the high quality standards of interest building blocks in the selection of investment opportunities are decisive.

"For the next growth phase and the further development of the zinsbaustein.de investment platform the real estate authority moves still stronger into the center. Together with the digital competence of Marc Stilke, Prop-Tech consultant,investor and long-standing CEO of ImmobilienScout24; and the legal know-how of Eric Romba, lawyer and long-standing managing director of the bsi Bundesverband Sachwerte und Investmentvermögen e.V., we are initiating the next development step at zinsbaustein.de" says Dr. Henrik Medla, managing director of Sontowski & Partner Group. "I would like to thank the finleap team for the joint development work that has made zinsbaustein.de the crowd-investment platform with the highest quality standards.”

finleap sells its shares to the Sontowski & Partner Group and concentrates on the further development of the recently introduced B2B2X-Fintech platforms. Marc Stilke will also further expand his commitment to zinsbaustein.de and has acquired additional shares. "We are proud to have helped found zinsbaustein.de," says Ramin Niroumand, founder and CEO at finleap. "We are very satisfied with the expanded commitment of the Sontowski & Partner Group and wish the team every success in further expanding the platform.”

The two managing directors of zinsbaustein.de, Rainer Pillmayer, formerly on the Management Board of DIC Asset AG and Volker Wohlfarth, previously in various management positions at ImmobilienScout24, are convinced that the increased commitment of the Sontowski & Partner Group will generate additional dynamism in the development of new products. The aim is to expand the spectrum of high-quality investment products in order to offer investors the opportunity to digitally build up their portfolio in an easy way. In future, mezzanine loans will only be part of the business. By the end of the year, another real estate asset class will be established on the zinsbaustein.de platform.
