Housers is a real estate crowdlending platform. It allows common investors to invest in companies that develop real estate projects all over the world. Recently, it launched the collaboration with a bank, Giovanni Buono, the CEO of the company, explains how this has allowed the integration of the online banking platform with Housers online investment platform. “Now the customers of this bank can invest directly from their online banking both through mobile and computer in projects published on our platform”.
As well as in Italy, Housers is also present in Spain and Portugal, but the platform is available in 4 languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and English. “The site in English – explains Buono – is for all those people who do not live in these countries who want to use our platform. If they want, they can do it “.
Amongst the difficulties encountered by Housers in its development there are none of typically Italian. Buono speaks mainly of critical issues that affect all the platforms which are active internationally. The biggest problem is certainly that of regulations. “Now the world of fintech, and in particular that of crowdfunding, are experiencing a moment of great ferment but every country is approaching this in a different way under a regulatory point of view. It is certainly necessary to create a common scenario at European level if we want these platforms to grow as in other countries like the United States or China”.
In this situation, the Fintech District could also play an important role. According to Buono, it is “the most important European initiative in this sector because it has brought together in a community all the most important players at national and international level both in classical finance and in the world of pure fintech”.
Joining the Fintech District this summer, Housers participate in numerous Fintech and Real Estate events in the Fall will and Buono will be among the faculty members of the master fintech organized by LUMSA University. “It is the first and only master of this kind for now in Italy, I am very proud to have been chosen to participate”.
