CORPORATE CULTURE WITH A CONSISTENT FOCUS ON QUALITY, BEST-PRACTICE STANDARDS AND ACHIEVEMENT OF OBJECTIVES

MOMENI Group stands for “Excellence in Real Estate Investment, Development, and Management.” We have set the highest personal and business standards for ourselves. We uncompromisingly pursue excellence in everything we do.

In each individual area of business within the Group we promote dynamic and efficient structures and processes with a high degree of reliability, professional standards and a practice-oriented, hands-on approach. Our primary focus is always on the success of the investments we are responsible for.

SPECIALIZED EXPERTISE TO MEET THE HIGHEST DEMANDS

Our integrated business model gives us complete control when implementing investment strategies and enables us to ensure the highest standards of quality throughout all phases of any real estate investment programme.

We focus on high-quality real estate products in inner-city locations of major German cities. This strict specialisation generates higher product quality and enhances success. We also apply an unusually high degree of precision and attention to detail; above-average qualifications and negotiating skills; many years of experience; an outstanding network of contacts and the sustainability of real estate.

We place the highest demands with regard to professionalism, expertise, integrity, international experience and the academic background of our people. We believe that all this, together with our employees’ high degree of company loyalty, generates a particular advantage that helps us achieve the investment goals of our capital partners.

LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIPS

The success of our capital partners is our top priority. Our own success is based primarily on the success of our capital partners.

We concentrate exclusively on investment opportunities in which we have confidence and expertise. This means that we can provide a team for any project we undertake that is tailored and aligned for maximum performance. We are interested in building and maintaining stable, long-term business relationships based on personal trust, integrity and performance.

Governance and Sustainability

We are constantly aware of our responsibility to investors, business associates, employees and society at large. We believe that high-quality business management and compliance with ecological and social principles results in long-term investment success for our capital partners. We have set out these principles in an internal corporate governance guideline.

Moreover, as an investor and developer of inner-city real estate, MOMENI Group concentrates on long-term projects and integrates them harmoniously and conscientiously into the urban context.
