MENA Real Estate

The MENA Real Estate Department at Markaz offers investors various real estate investment opportunities across the MENA region. Markaz started its MENA Real Estate activity in Kuwait in 1998 with the launching of Markaz Real Estate Advisory Services. Since then we have been consistent in our investment philosophy; focusing on acquiring and developing institutional quality properties, in prime locations, and always devising an exit strategy before the closure of a transaction.

In 2002, Markaz established MREF, an open ended fund, investing in income and non-income generating real estate properties in Kuwait with the aim to generate stable income and returns through prudent acquisition, management and disposal of properties in the most promising segments of the real estate market mainly in Kuwait. As of May 2013 MREF owns 40 properties in Kuwait and its assets are valued at 100m KD

In 2006, Markaz launched the first product targeting the MENA region: Markaz Real Estate Opportunities Fund, an opportunistic private equity structure development fund. Since then we structured and managed 5 different investment products with a total equity of c.400m USD and made investments in KSA, Qatar, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria, and studied investments but did not invest in Oman, Egypt, Bahrain and Algeria. Furthermore, in 2013, Markaz was awarded a portfolio for Kuwait Investment Authority, mandating Markaz to invest 875m USD in Kuwait real estate market.

Through our vast network of developers, consultants, brokers, financial institutions and partners and our presence on the ground in the MENA region, we have access to unique investment opportunities covering the whole spectrum of the real estate world investing from income generating assets through real estate development and land development.

MENA real estate investments target a wide variety of sectors at different stages of the real estate asset development, investing in residential, commercial, industrial, hospitality and other sectors, developing land, developing buildings, managing income generating assets, as well as structuring products around assets.
