With the rise of crowdfunding websites, investors are finding it easier to find private investment opportunities. Crowdfunding and lending platforms provide access to many different assets types through equity or debt offerings including real estate. As crowdfunding gains popularity among real estate investors, we understand that company founders and their teams need a strategic partner with industry leading expertise in private equity, real estate, lending and technology. Armanino is perfectly suited to meet the complex needs of companies in the real estate crowdfunding industry.

Our Approach

Our industry-leading niche expertise in the private equity fund space provides for a perfect partnership between Armanino and crowdfunding companies like yours. Working with one of the largest public peer-to-peer lending companies headquartered in San Francisco, and other emerging real estate crowdfunding companies, Armanino brings together decades of real estate, lending and private equity fund experience combined with our technology and SEC practice to offer a suite of services perfectly suited for the crowdfunding industry. We go beyond the typical financial and tax reporting compliance you’d expect from a CPA to help crowdfunding companies address initial structuring and set up, platform strategy and technology requirements.

What We Do




Armanino understands what it takes to ensure both the compliance and success of your crowdfunding platform when it comes to day-to-day accounting, audit and assurance, and financial reporting.




CFOs come to Armanino for much more than tax compliance. We have extensive experience with the complex tax issues that affect crowdfunding companies including IPO planning. Our experts address key concerns and identify strategic tax-planning opportunities throughout the year—not just during tax season.




Armanino has invested the time and research to select, implement and develop industry-specific software solutions. Our consultants recommend the best-of-breed ERP, CRM, budgeting, forecasting and reporting tools on the market.
