Fernando Angelucci is the Co-Founder and CEO of Self Storage Syndicated Equities, a real estate investment firm with a portfolio of $250M+ built over the past four years. They specialize in self-storage investments, purchasing existing cash-flowing assets, and building ground-up facilities nationwide. Before getting into self-storage, Fernando worked as an engineer at Dow Chemical, a Fortune 50 company, where he rolled out a flagship product estimated to gross $1B in global revenues. After a year, he left this lucrative job, and the night after he quit, he applied for 64 credit cards. He received approval for 12 and used the cards to raise $97,000 to begin his real estate investing career. He was in his early 20s at the time, and this was the only way he could think of to get capital without turning to his parents. Before turning 30, he owned a multi-million dollar portfolio of residential properties covering the Midwest, which he sold in 2018 to focus on self-storage.
In this episode we talked to Fernando about finding your niche, reasons for transitioning to this industry, comparing self-storage to retail, how he created impressive deal flow in, and showcasing how he built a $220 million portfolio.
