Arax Properties is an independent and established real estate operating partner targeting the UK, Germany and France. We seek to maximize value at all stages of our investments by combining institutional-class financial and strategic know-how with hands-on operational skills and local expertise.
Over the last fifteen years, our track record has led a wide range of blue chip institutional investors to build repeat joint ventures alongside Arax.
We unlock value throughout the life cycle of a property transaction, from acquisition to exit. Our reputation, deep networks of relationships, seasoned execution processes and hands-on asset management approach have yielded a superior track record since our inception.
Our approach focuses particularly on micro location dynamics and tenant needs in order to identify the best available opportunities. We are value investors focusing equally on the risk and the return of any given situation.
