Markaz continues to expand its International Real Estate Investment program across the USA and Europe19 - Nov - 2020

The International Real Estate Investment program of Kuwait Financial Centre 'Markaz' delivered a solid performance in 2020. It produced healthy returns for its clients despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, confirming its position as a leading asset manager in the MENA region. Being a leader in anticipating market conditions and industry trends, Markaz leveraged opportunities presented by the pandemic, successfully completing a series of sales transactions from its real estate portfolio in the USA and Europe. Building on this success, and on the expertise of its team, Markaz is purposefully expanding its real estate investment program in these international markets.

Markaz competitive edge gives consistent performance
Abdullatif W. Al-Nusif, Executive Vice President, Wealth Management & Business Development at Markaz, stated: 'We are very pleased with the performance of our real estate investments across the US and Europe. This year represents another milestone for the program's success and our capability to achieve attractive returns despite continuing uncertainty across all markets and sectors. Our competitive edge comes from having a fully operational office in the USA for over 30 years, with its highly experienced team building and proactively leveraging our strategic partnerships with leading partners.'

Capitalizing on opportunities
Al-Nusif added: 'At Markaz, We remain focused on expanding our portfolio in existing and new markets across the USA and Europe. The current market conditions have and will continue to create, if well-selected, exciting opportunities. Capitalizing on the partnerships we have built with leading partners, service providers and lending institutions over the past 30 years, we are amplifying our existing development program in the USA, and very similarly in Europe, expanding into Poland, Germany and the Netherlands. In a parallel strategy, the team is currently assessing the landscape for sectors that have been temporarily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but which have enduring future potential, such as hospitality.'

Investors' trust in Markaz innovative investment solutions
Deena Y. AlRefai, Senior Vice President, Investor Relations at Markaz said: 'The International Real Estate Investment program reflects Markaz's consistent success in creating value for its stakeholders, through its well-designed, innovative investment solutions, steeped in five decades of hands-on experience.
