History

We’ve been creating history since 2004.

Back then, we recognised the vast investment potential of Dubai’s property market. Acting before anyone else, we worked exclusively with a leading Marina developer, sold thousands of properties, and secured record growth for our investors.

Dubai was the foundation of our success, but we wanted to build on this – quite literally.

We knew that, in order to give our investors the high returns they wanted, we needed to do it all ourselves. Build, sell and manage. Combining this freedom with shrewd selection of new investment opportunities, we now create and evolve end user brands.

With this revolutionary approach, the Group can control every aspect of the investment. None of the tenant focus is lost, all of the advantages are passed on to our investors.
