Seven things investors should know about Dar Global – investing in luxury real estate

Dar Global is a highly differentiated international real estate business. It focuses predominantly on developing real estate projects comprising second homes for internationally mobile customers in some of the most desirable locations across the Middle East and Europe.

Investing in luxury real estate is an enticing proposition, offering not only financial returns but also a taste of opulence. At the heart of this industry stands Dar Global, a developer that is redefining luxury living in some of the world’s most exclusive locations.

1. Luxury redefined: Dar Global is synonymous with unparalleled quality and exclusivity in every project. From the azure coastlines of Europe to the opulent Middle East, its developments epitomise luxury.

2. The power of brand partnerships: One of Dar Global’s key strengths is its collaboration with prestigious luxury brands like Missoni, Pagani and W Residences. These partnerships elevate its projects, often resulting in impressive 30% premium valuations compared to non-branded developments.

3. Targeting the elite: Dar Global caters to a discerning clientele, including high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals. These jet-setters seek second or vacation homes that match their lavish international lifestyles. Investing in Dar Global means investing in properties designed for the world’s elite.

4. Resilience to market fluctuations: While market cycles can rattle the real estate industry, Dar Global’s customer base remains robust. High net worth individuals are less susceptible to interest rate fluctuations, ensuring stability and potential profitability for Dar Global.

5. A capital-light approach: Dar Global’s nimble and efficient business model minimises upfront capital requirements through joint development agreements and pre-sales. This approach facilitates rapid scaling and promises superior returns. With 11 properties across six countries, valued at approximately $5.0bn, and over 5,700 units, Dar Global’s diverse portfolio showcases its global reach and investment opportunities.

6. Proven track record: Dar Global was spun out of the successful Dar Al Arkan, which has established a strong track record of delivering on its promises. Dar Global chief executive Ziad El Chaar says: ‘Since Dar Al Arkan’s inception in 1994, the track record of that company is that it has delivered every project it has announced.’ Recent interim results show an increase in profits, with several projects nearing completion, underlining its commitment to successful project execution.

7. Expanding horizons: Building on its established presence in the Gulf Cooperation Council, Dar Global is venturing into European markets, including luxury locations in the UK and Spain. This expansion signifies its confidence in leveraging its knowledge of luxury real estate, ensuring that its project portfolio and expertise extends beyond geographical boundaries.
