History and Background
Sorani Finance & Real Estate was founded in 2009 as a proprietary investment platform. In 2013, Sorani’s mandate expanded to include investment and asset management on behalf of third-party investors and owners. The firm’s real estate portfolio in the U.S. and India currently exceeds $500 million of assets under management.
Sorani’s investment philosophy is built upon three primary pillars: (i) value-oriented real estate acquisitions structured with attractive pricing and mitigated downside risks, (ii) conservative leverage to ensure an appropriate margin of safety for each investment, and (iii) activist value-added approach to asset management and development execution.
Current Investment Strategies
• United States: (i) opportunistic value-added investments in global gateway cities, and (ii) residential acquisitions for long-term hold that provide inflation protection and current yield
• India: real estate development projects in Tier I cities, particularly for-sale residential assets that benefit from India’s growing middle-class and strong demographics
• Select investments in real estate operating platforms
