Investing in projects introduced by PFS Property Group Spain SL, trading as Property Finance International (below called PFI) may involve certain risks, such as the risk of total or partial loss of invested capital, not obtaining the expected monetary return, or lack of liquidity. Therefore, we advise investors to only invest an amount they are willing to lose and suggest they diversify their investments to minimize and mitigate potential risks.
The main risks may be as follows:
Investments made in PFI introduced projects are not guaranteed, therefore there is a risk of losing all or part of the invested capital.
Profitability and the value of the investment will depend on the success of the project in which the investment is made. Therefore, if the project’s objectives are not met, the investor may not obtain the expected return and even in negative scenarios, may lose all or part of the invested money.
Investments made in PFI introduced projects are not guaranteed. That is, neither PFI nor the developers of the projects guarantee the recovery of the investment or the obtaining of a minimum return. There is also no guarantee fund that guarantees the recovery of the investment or the obtaining of a minimum return.
The risk of lack of liquidity is warned, caused by the difficulty or impossibility of an investor being able to transfer their shares after acquiring them. In this sense, the inherent restrictions on the free transferability of shares that are inherent in the legal regime of the limited companies that issued them, as well as the restrictions established in their social statutes or parasocial agreements, must be taken into account.
Investments made in PFI introduced projects may be subject to future dilution. Dilution occurs when a company issues more shares. Dilution affects all existing partners who do not acquire any of the new shares. As a result, the partners’ participation is reduced.
Capital gains will be distributed among investors in their capacity as partners, using the method that maximizes their investment return. The projects published on Urbanitae are real estate and, depending on their characteristics, may be focused on the short or long term. Therefore, in some cases, dividends will not be received but capital gains in the liquidation of the limited company, without any guaranteed return.
Investors cannot influence the management of the companies financed through the participatory financing platform.
