The group takes pride in providing differentiated and creative advisory and capital markets solutions. It focuses on most industries, with special interest in real estate, energy, retail, and infrastructure.

The examples above provide a snapshot of the scope and scale of structured FI projects worldwide.

  • Assisted and structured a senior construction loan of $21m for a 41,295 gross-square-foot residential rental development project in East Harlem, New York. The 14-storey property will have 29,390 square feet of net rentable residential area, with some 2,000 rentable square feet of retail space at the base of the building.
  • Capital structuring on the equity investment to lease the five-star, 31-key hotel located in Copenhagen, close to Kongens Nytorv, Strøget, the city’s famous canals and metro station. The six-storey hotel has been renovated and decorated, while maintaining its historical charm.

  • Sell-side advisory for a leading fashion retail company based in Lugano and Milan, with a valuation of €1bn.

For any one real estate asset acquisition, FI can raise up to 80-90 percent of the capital stack through debt, equity and other forms of financial vehicles to minimise in diluting the clients cash flow for one specific project. FI manages an active international advisory platform which has executed over $2.65bn of equity, debt and investment sale/acquisition advisory business worldwide. The experienced team at FI provides the same services to companies across industry sectors. The executive team has executed significant investments in sales / debt / equity capitalisations in FI’s focus industries.

Farazad Investments’ niche business model is built by seeking out exceptional entrepreneurs and creating long-term joint venture partnerships. The formula has been tried and tested. It maximises the skill sets of both parties, enabling them to deliver optimal value to investors and the newly created JV entity.
