Martin Almdal
Co-founder & CEO
Why did you create SIPA crowd immo?

I set up SIPA crowd immo because there was a clear need in the (local) market for individuals to have access to the excellent returns offered by investing in property.

Originally from Denmark, Martin discovered Switzerland in 1997. Little did he know that he would start a family here, but he ended up settling here permanently and becoming a Swiss citizen in 2017.

As Manager of SIPA Group SA, he is involved in a wide range of activities, as can be seen from his professional experience. Martin has always worked in the world of finance, whether in stock markets, private placements or real estate financing.

A specialist in investments, he is now further diversifying his activities with the launch of SIPA crowd immo SA.

- The synergy of all our activities is to make the inaccessible, accessible to everyone. "

The (Swiss) property market remains one of the strongest and most resilient in Europe, but delivering solid returns to most property investors can seem a daunting task.

Typically, capital requirements exceed the financial capacity that investors can afford, but thanks to our platform, we offer simplified access and our clients benefit not only from solid returns, but also from a transparent structure.

It's a pleasure to work in our Group. Every day I'm surrounded by some very talented people, whether it's the teams in the administration department, the analysts who scrutinise the markets rigorously or the incredible customer relations advisers. These are the people who ultimately nourish the soul of our company, and I feel privileged to work alongside them.

Alan Andersen
Co-founder & CFO
What's in it for investors?

At a time of zero or negative interest rates and uncertainty in the financial markets, property investments offer cautious savers a stable return on their capital.

Director of SIPA crowd immo and Director of Investments for the various departments of SIPA Group SA. Alan specialises in portfolio management and high-potential investments such as real estate and shipping.

Alan has over 23 years' experience in the financial sector serving Swiss and international clients, including the last 13 years with the SIPA Group.

- The benefits of owning property as an investment have long been proven. This is particularly true in Switzerland, where more than 70% of the population live in rented accommodation, and demand is rising all the time.

Many properties are specifically designed for the rental market. By owning the whole building, economies of scale and risk diversification allow owners to maximise returns. SIPA crowd immo identifies properties that meet strict criteria, such as demographics, income, costs and price, giving owners the security that a stable income can be generated.

SIPA crowd immo offers turnkey investments. All buildings are incorporated as a single company, with a mortgage and initial management contract attached. Shareholders retain overall control of the building, determining all strategic decisions at the annual general meeting, ensuring complete peace of mind that their interests always come first.

Why did you choose to join SIPA crowd immo?

Swiss real estate remains a feudal model reserved for an elite and based on a process that has not evolved for a century. SIPA Immo offers a profitable and reliable alternative solution for a more active public in simplified investment with an interest in sustainable development. A new type of alternative investment, combining simplicity, profitability and sustainability in a sector that has always been considered a safe haven.

A simple private investment fund made accessible to independent investors acting together on behalf of all. A model that eliminates the costs associated with large investment funds, the risk of minor fluctuations compared with equity markets, and a basic investment sum that is much lower than the purchase of a property in its entirety in Switzerland.

All this via a simplified legal and administrative process managed by a team of experts. With over 20 years' experience of supporting its international customers and a commitment to environmentally-friendly solutions. SIPA crowd immo is emerging as a key player in sustainable participative investment in Switzerland.

Originally from Montreux, but having spent his childhood between Lake Geneva and the mountains, Swen spent 14 years in Switzerland in the technology, consulting and management sectors. After more than 12 years in the USA and South America, he decided to return to his roots and his homeland.

Active in a variety of fields, but always related to technology and real estate in the broadest sense. A specialist in Business Excellence, Organisational Management and ESG (environmental, social and governance criteria), he brings solid organisational and ecological experience to our Group.

Customer Advisor
Can you tell us about your best experience at SIPA crowd immo?

The Elle Spirit Open tennis tournament! We organised a cocktail reception and invited our clients to join us for the event. It gave me the chance to see first-hand what it's like to invest in property and crowdfunding, and to make some valuable business contacts. My career in banking and then for a major energy supplier helped me to hone my customer relations skills. I'm now ready to take on the assignments that come my way.

Mélissa joined SIPA Crowd Immo just over a year ago and carefully guides our customers in their choice of investment opportunities, ensuring that each project is followed through to completion. Her skills in listening, analysing and communicating enable her to respond precisely to individual needs. For Mélissa, customer relations are essential. She believes that each person deserves unique attention, and her main aim is to build customer loyalty by creating relationships based on trust and satisfaction.
