What we do

We help our clients take advantage of African real estate opportunities

AREA helps individuals, corporates and large institutions find, develop and manage Sub-Saharan African real estate and infrastructure opportunities. Whether the opportunity is in retail, commercial, residential or industrial property development, we have a successful track record of providing clients with exceptional returns while managing their risk.

How we work with our clients

We work on deal-specific projects or, if the nature of an opportunity is more long term, we establish a long-term strategic partnership. The opportunity and our clients’ needs determine how we work and which of our services come to the fore. Our advisory services span the entire investment process, from identifying suitable opportunities to executing the deal, optimising asset management and if necessary, initiating and managing subsequent investment exits.

We unlock investment potential and provide peace of mind

Our extensive experience and local partnerships provide knowledge to manage and determine:

  • What you need to know in each jurisdiction in which we operate
  • When and where risks could arise, and how to manage these in each local context
  • How to provide practical and commercial solutions to unanticipated challenges

Our clients enjoy a smooth and sustainable investment process

We offer the complete spectrum of services you need to make a profitable investment in Sub-Saharan Africa: advice, strategic input, legal and regulatory risk management, local contacts and niche expertise across all the facets of real estate investment. By combining these specialised services, we optimise your time and investment outcome.
