Max Vo, R2Crowd’s Chief Investment Officer, and his team of underwriters have decades of combined work experience in not only underwriting but also managing commercial real estate across virtually every asset class. They have in the past worked with institutions such as GWLRA, Morguard, Crestpoint, Canada Pension Plan, RBC, CIBC, Telus, Avison Young, Sunlife etc. Our Risk Management process brings the same level of rigour as a Tier 1 lender such as a big Canadian bank.
