Technological enhancement at the heart of Rent2Cash development. A significant portion of the new capital will be dedicated to the enhancement of VAULT, the proprietary algorithm underlying the Rent2Cash model. This innovative tool is already able to analyze over 50 variables to examine the status of the property, the lease, the owner and the tenant, offering customers dynamic and personalized pricing. The algorithm will be further developed to include new asset classes, with particular attention to the imminent launch of new products that will complement the residential one, primarily related to the commercial real estate sector.

“The results achieved so far and the closing of this important pre-seed round represent a fundamental recognition of our strategy”, explain the founders of Rent2Cash Gianluca Fioranelli, Yilang Chen and Marco Grassi . “The idea behind our project is to revolutionize the perceived value of a property by transforming rent into immediate liquidity for owners. The trust placed in the project by leading investors made us understand that we were on the right track, an intuition confirmed by the first contracts and a thousand new contacts in a few months, which represent the validation of our business model, in a potential market that is worth over 30 billion a year in Italy alone”. And the founders conclude: “ Our commitment is to continue to innovate to offer increasingly efficient and sustainable solutions to our customers . We are already working on several commercial products, which we will launch shortly, to further revolutionize the market”.

“Participation in this initiative as an advisor, investor and servicer of securitization confirms our institute’s vocation to create new solutions for the financial market, putting its skills in the creation and management of innovative and complex structured finance operations at the service of promising and cutting-edge entities,” adds Paolo Gabriele, Head of Investment Banking Financial Institution at Banca Finint . “The Rent2Cash platform represents a unique feature on the Italian market, in a segment that is still unexplored but with great growth potential. Securitization, a field in which Banca Finint boasts long-standing expertise and a leadership position on the Italian market, continues to prove that it is, in Italy and abroad, the main tool that investors prefer to use to support the financial needs of entities dedicated to fintech and innovation.”
