US Capital Global Securities to Act as Placement Agent in CityBlock DSO

Updated on

$10 million Fund

In a new round of funding, CityBlock Capital is making $10 million worth of equity in their NYCQ Fund available to investors. This sale is being facilitated through placement agent, US Capital Global Securities.

The NYCQ fund provides global investors with exposure to the New York real estate market. This is done by selling digital securities representing fractionalized ownership in the fund, which is backed by strategic real estate purchases. Investors benefit, not only through the profits seen due to increasing property values, but through increased liquidity as well.

Naturally, as the tokens to be distributed represent equity in the form of a digital security, the investment opportunity is currently open to only accredited investors.

This is not the first time that CityBlock Capital has taken part in a digital securities offering. In February, 2019, CityBlock Capital announced that a similar event would be hosted through SharesPost.

The Portfolio

In addition to facilitating the $10 million offering on behalf of the NYCQ fund, US Capital Global Securities has gained exposure, themselves, by including the fund within their own portfolio. This places the fund alongside other investments such as the following noteworthy companies.

“Combining low minimum investment amounts and early liquidity opportunities, the Fund gives accredited investors access to blockchain infrastructure investments normally available to institutional investors…Our firm is keen to back forward-thinking strategies at the frontline of the digital market era. The opportunity to participate in this $10 million equity investment in the Fund is still open to eligible investors.”
