CEO, Mohamad Abouchalbak, recounted the history of SFO Capital Partners during an interview with Gustavo Favaron, CEO & Managing Director of GRI Club, at Europe GRI 2023. 

Based in London, SFO Capital Partners currently holds USD $2.2 billion AUM in Europe and the US across a series of strategies. The company has operated in numerous asset classes over the past decade, including transformation of offices, residential, logistics, and more recently, credit.

Mohamad emphasised the power of agility in real estate investment. As an industry that is extremely reactive to the wider macroeconomic and geopolitical environment, it is crucial to be nimble and adapt to the market as and when needed.

Considering current market conditions, two asset classes Mohamad acknowledged as focuses at present were residential - enjoying long term fundamentals and favourable demand dynamics - and logistics - benefiting from e-commerce penetration.

GRI Club will be delving into the current strategies and challenges in the Logistics asset class at the upcoming GRI Light Industrial & Logistics Europe 2023 on November 8-9, in Amsterdam. Read more and register here.
