"The merger is the next logical step for both sides. Five years ago, we started in Hamburg as neighbours with the same vision, and now we want to pool our resources and look forward to benefiting from each other's experience and strengths," says Carl von Stechow, founder of Zinsland. "We are convinced that all stakeholders will benefit from this step. This, of course, also applied to our existing investors, because existing investments will continue to be completely and reliably managed via the Zinsland platform," adds Henning Frank, CEO of Zinsland.

This cooperation will result in a total of 191 employees who will now work together to further develop the market for digital real estate investments. After the record financing of 43 million Euros announced a few months ago, and the recently exceeded threshold of 500 million Euros of brokered capital at Exporo, the company is now taking a significant step towards market consolidation. Simon Brunke provides an outlook on the opportunities that that the merger will bring: "Together, we are one step closer to our vision of one million digital real estate investors in Europe and will now work together to make real estate simple, transparent and digitally accessible to everyone."
