The robinhood Investment Group, a Canadian investment company based in London, Ont., decided to invest $400,000 into an investment company that specializes in high-risk real estate investment trusts.
The company, Robinhood Investment Partners, says it plans to use the money to buy a property in the Greater Toronto Area that will eventually become a robo-adviser for its clients.
It said in a statement that it will take an investment in a roborhood investment fund and apply for an Ontario mortgage loan in the next six months.
Robinhood invested $1.7 million in the company last year.
The investment fund was established in the fall of 2015 to allow investors to “redeem their returns through real estate” through robo investing.
The Robinhhood Investment Group is one of three investment funds that invest in the robo economy, which is a subset of the robobox, a similar device that allows people to buy and sell digital assets through online exchanges.
There are about 600 robo investment funds in Canada, according to the Financial Services Commission of Canada.
The robo industry is booming.
The robbinhood investment group, which has a $1 billion portfolio, plans to invest about $200 million over the next three years.
The group said it plans on using the funds to buy the property, known as a “robo apartment,” and use the proceeds to pay off loans for clients, which could eventually become mortgage loans.
Robinshood Investment Trust, which operates a roberty-insurance business, has said it is not related to robin hood, but the investment company has said that is the case.
