Real Estate

Real estate is not just a key sector, it makes a vital contribution to the development of our society. More than just an area of expertise, real estate is a business based on convictions at Edmond de Rothschild. It is not limited to a simple return-based approach; it is our responsibility to support environmental and social changes with strong operational and local involvement.


OUR APPROACH

So that our clients can take full advantage of these challenges, we have combined a set of technical, financial, legal, strategic and sales skills to be able to intervene across the entire value chain. Our operational abilities enable us to identify opportunities and generate value from all types of real estate assets.

Whether on behalf of collective investment vehicles, or for institutional or private third parties, we are active in the development and management of their property investments throughout Europe.
