The new unit is led by Nael Mustafa, an experienced professional in private equity and real estate investments across regional and international markets.

GFH Partners currently manages over $6 billion of real estate assets, as part of the total $18 billion of assets managed by the group.

The unit manages assets in the stabilized and core markets of the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, where it aims to capture and capitalize on strong economic growth prospects.

The subsidiary offers institutional and professional clients investment solutions through a variety of products, including funds, separately managed accounts, and direct deals.

GFH Partners employs a thematic approach, focusing on sectors where the group has a proven track record. This includes industrial and logistics assets, residential, student housing, and healthcare.

These themes and sectors are chosen based on fundamentals and solid tailwinds that provide investors with opportunities that offer stabilized, low-risk returns over the holding periods.

GFH Partners’ affiliate in the UK, Roebuck Asset Management, is a pan-European asset management company specializing in UK and European logistics.

Meanwhile, GFH Partners’ US-based affiliates include SQ Asset Management, a living sector asset and property manager focused on student housing, and Big Sky Asset Management, a US-based real estate asset manager focused on the defensive healthcare segment.

GFH Financial Group has also recently received a credit rating increase to B by Fitch Ratings, reflecting the group’s strong financial performance, diversified business model, and solid liquidity position.

The upgrade in credit rating is expected to further strengthen the group’s position in the market and attract more investors.

In recent years, GFH has transacted over $4 billion in the industrial logistics sector, with assets leased to credit-rated tenants including Amazon, FedEx, General Mills, and Michelin, among others.

The group’s focus on real estate and asset management has been a key driver of its growth and diversification, with GFH Partners set to further expand the group’s capabilities in this area.
