Real estate financier Qualitas, backed by Carol and Alan Schwartz, has seeded a start-up that allows small investors to offer home loans to Asian buyers shunned by the major banks.

Peer Estate, founded by former Qualitas executive Adam Broder and ANZ banking tech expert Phil Aarons, and seeded with Qualitas funding, is an online marketplace where investors can provide as little as $5000 to fund a first mortgage for an overseas buyer.

The launch of Peer Estate was covered in the Australian Financial Review.  You can read more here by clicking here.
