SafeRE Team: Redefining the Real Estate Investment Landscape

Ethical. Innovative. Rewarding.

Our Roots

The conception of SafeRE has been the result of the combined effort and vision of the SafeRE team. SafeRE was founded by passionate experts in real estate, finance, technology, and asset management with the aim to leverage technology and strategies to simplify real estate transactions.

Our Vision

Behind the creation of SafeRE was a clear vision. Making real estate investing and financing more ethical, more innovative and more rewarding.

Our journey started when the SafeRE team identified the need for an accessible, more streamlined, efficient way of investing in and financing of real estate opportunities. Recognising the potential of a digitised alternative, providing return and cost benefits to investors, SafeRE was officially launched in 2023.

The SafeRE team is a group of dynamic professionals with extensive experience. We have successfully used equity and credit strategies ranging from core to distressed investments for a range of asset types including student accommodation, logistics centres, residential and hospitality assets. Our strategies combine a focus on adding value to underperforming assets through careful market analysis and meticulous execution of improvement activities, with investor-oriented legal and financial structuring, and active management of the investment and divestment processes.
