LONDON, Oct. 10, 2018 — Real estate is hybrid in nature, reflecting the features of both bonds and equities, while offering superior risk-adjusted returns and a hedge against inflation. Even so, real estate investment is far from straightforward: detailed knowledge and careful management are both required to ensure that risk and reward are well balanced and monitored.
SFO Group is an independent, multi-family office with a focus on global real estate investments. With more than $1.6bn of assets under management, SFO has a proven reputation for successfully identifying, acquiring and managing high quality assets. SFO is a member of Saradar Capital Holding, a diversified conglomerate that has been at the centre of the Lebanese financial sector for over 70 years. In recognition of the group’s sterling work across different sectors and geographies, SFO Group has been named the Best Real Estate Investment Firm for 2018 by World Finance.
“This award crystalises our success in establishing an investment platform that provides access to global real estate that generates current income with capital appreciation potential,” said Mario Saradar, Chairman and CEO of Saradar Capital Holding.
“This recognition has been achieved by the strength of our business model, our shareholders’ continuous support and the drive of our best-in-class team who are collectively contributing to our success,” SFO Group Chief Executive Mohamad Abouchalbak added.
One area that drew particular praise was SFO’s US Housing Programme. As part of this initiative, the group has acquired more than 2,500 real estate units across six major US cities, bolstering both its multi-family and student housing portfolios. These superior investment opportunities are only possible by leveraging SFO’s deep understanding of local dynamics and international developments.
Although SFO Group has achieved much success over the previous decades, the organisation refuses to stand still. SFO has set its sights on expanding its US housing portfolio and investing in a number of other high-quality real estate assets across key European cities.
