Acting CEO: Korosh Farazad

He established the subsidiary arm, Farazad Advisory Ltd in the UK in 2015, expanding the brand and providing professional and structured guidance on mixed-use real estate investment opportunities with deep focus in hospitality, consultancy, in-depth market analysis, and feasibility reports.

Farazad Investments (FI) specialises in accessing capital for projects via sophisticated, highly structured debt and equity solutions. It is headquartered in the Hong Kong and domiciled in UK. FI’s portfolio of international investors has helped to establish it as one of the most recognised and proven boutique investment houses, with global access to capital and industry focused expertise.

It operates across five continents, with a presence in Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Australia and US, with an expanding portfolio and new global funding ventures. FI’s standing in the lending market has strengthened with access to the competitive blue-chip Private Equity Funds and Private Family Offices.

FI’s survival during challenging times hinged on Korosh Farazad and his experienced team’s ability to diversify and establish a secure platform, adapting the mechanics of conventional financing to a volatile market. FI has assisted in advising and structuring projects worth more than $3.7bn.

Korosh Farazad’s unique approach has been crucial to the firm’s success and paved the way for international recognition from regulatory bodies and PE Funds in US, Europe and Asia. A transparent approach to financing and creative thinking led to the introduction of an award-winning, in-house financing formula.

The acting CEO’s unrivalled knowledge of international banking, finance and investments catapulted the business through the late 1990s, facilitating medium- to large-scale structured financing for major projects.

Farazad also is a Vice Chairman (Non-Executive) for a Swiss Fund with AUM $4.6 Billion and the Co-Founding Member of a hospitality Fund focused in acquiring cashflow positive hotels with distressed asset owners due to the pandemic in prime European cities and Central London. He has significant growth plans to create a hotel portfolio of AUM $1 Billion by 2022.
