More about balize

Our platform is aimed at investors with a medium to high purchasing power, starting from 10,000 euros, offering the advantages of diversifying their portfolio as well as reducing operational and intermediation costs. "This year we expect to double the number of funded projects, with larger projects to reach up to 20 million euros in total and an average profitability of 16%", says Joana Marabella, Co-Founder & CLO (Chief Legal Officer) of Balize.

We work on real estate projects in Barcelona, Madrid, and Andorra. From the beginning of our activity in November 2022 until the end of 2023, we have achieved 10 funded projects with annual returns of 11%, which has resulted in a total financing of 1.5 million euros. The products on our platform primarily focus on residential, but we also have prime products in the study of coliving, coworking, and student residences.

The roadmap for the coming years is ambitious, as there are plans to expand the business into other European countries such as Italy and Germany, and later internationally. "We operate in two markets that are in full growth. On one hand, the value of Real World Assets tokenization is estimated at 1.5 trillion euros in 2024, reaching 16 trillion by 2030; on the other, global investment in real estate is expected to double by 2030", Marabella details.
