After decades of experience in institutional financial services, the founders of Plum recognized the need to challenge the status quo which makes the commercial real estate (CRE) lending process opaque and cumbersome. Plum is a more agile and advisory financial technology company that combines data intelligence with best-in-class financial expertise to modernize CRE lending.
Our CEO, Bill Fisher, has decades of experience building successful startup businesses, including GetSmart.com, Xing and Trivago. Our team includes senior leaders and talent from AIG, Goldman Sachs, KKR, McKinsey, PWC, Bank of America, Meridian Capital, A10, JP Morgan, Freddie Mac, US Bank, Wells Fargo and PNC Real Estate.
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.
Plum is headquartered in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District in an airy, industrial loft, close to all forms of public transportation.
