Build a better alternative for investment markets
Help us revolutionize the way the alternative investment industry operates.
In 2017, RealBlocks was founded by Perrin Quarshie after he wanted to make it easier for investors to access private markets. Today, we see ourselves as the building blocks for the new era of investing in alternatives.

Values That D.R.I.V.E. Our Success
We work in the fast paced world of fintech, and we always strive to constantly change and evolve. Our team members have to wear many hats and react on the fly, but where’s the fun in doing the same thing everyday? New challenges are bound to surface and our team is always ready to solve the next problem.
Being respectful is, first and foremost, the right thing to do. We treat everyone with respect, regardless of one’s background or identity; there’s no room for individuals who do not respect those around them. And a respectful workplace also empowers team members to speak up and help guide the direction of our organization!
RealBlocks is disrupting an established and traditional industry: alternative investments. It’s our ability to think outside of the box that allows us to solve problems in unique and new ways. Often times individuals can be stymied by invisible walls that restrict their creativity; we want to embrace the freedom to think differently because that’s how true innovation is ignited.
There are no shortcuts in our world of business. It’s imperative that we act in a moral and ethical manner because we’re dealing with incredibly important and sensitive matters. A client’s money and wellbeing is the foundation of our business and we will always act in the best interest of our clients.
RealBlocks attracts incredibly bright and driven people that want to make an impact with their work. We all aim to uphold a standard of excellence because we see our work as a reflection of ourselves. This means always giving your best; the team members around you are all counting on you (but always willing to help)!
