Plum is a financial technology company using data science and artificial intelligence to reimagine the business of connecting sources of capital with commercial real estate (CRE) owners, making the financing process fast, simple, efficient and reliable for everyone. On the borrower side, we either work directly with CRE owners, or partner with their wealth managers and financial advisors to deliver more loan options, outstanding service and flawless execution for CRE acquisitions and refinances. Plum is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, and lends nationwide.
Our team includes former senior leaders and talent from AIG, Goldman Sachs, KKR, McKinsey, PWC, Sony and Wells Fargo. We have extensive experience with CRE sourcing, underwriting and funding processes, as well as deep networks of institutional financing channels. Our founder and CEO, Bill Fisher, has decades of experience building successful startup businesses, including GetSmart.com, Xing and Trivago. Read more about our team here.
In April 2018, Plum announced a Series B equity investment by the $35 billion hedge fund, Elliott Management. Plum’s Series A round in August 2015 was led by Renren Inc, who has backed other fintech companies including SoFi, LendingHome and Motif Investing. This followed an earlier seed investment by QED Investors, a pre-eminent VC firm led by the founders of Capital One, whose portfolio includes Prosper, Orchard and ApplePie Capital.
