Ep311: Breaking Down the Barriers That Keep Most Americans From Investing with the CEO and Founder of DiversyFund Craig Cecilio
March 28, 2022
Craig Cecilio is the CEO and Founder of DiversyFund, a loving husband, and a dedicated father to three beautiful daughters. A family man at heart, Craig’s mission is to break down the barriers that keep most Americans from investing like the privileged, well-connected, and wealthiest 1% in our country.
Exposed to wealth building and syndicators, real estate developers, people who knew how to raise capital structure deals, Craig has since been sold to the idea that this is what he was meant to do. He mustered all the knowledge acquired over the years of study and experience and compressed them down to the everyday investor with the ultimate goal of closing the wealth gap. With the innovative technology and his extensive expertise in finance and investment management, he was able to open a great opportunity to as low as $500 with a wide array of financial literacy resources.
Although $500 doesn’t sound much, it still gets you a start and puts your foot in the game. So, apart from knocking down those barriers, there are a lot of educational components involved in his mission.
How does it work?
It is an app on iOS and Android where investors can transact directly to their bank account, push their money directly across all the paperwork and everything about the investment there. Then you go in, and within a few days, their money clears. It goes into their account, and then they deploy, aggregate all those funds together. $500 can’t buy a multimillion-dollar property, so they aggregate all those together. It builds up to millions of dollars, and they go out and buy a property, usually between 15 and 25 million, which is 100 to 300 units across the US.
