Investment Strategy

W5 Group has special, off-market access in the U.S. and expertise in the development of modern housing

The team in New York, Washington DC and Miami focuses on the ever-increasing demands of modern tenants. Large, urban markets have been impacted by the pandemic and offer lucrative investment opportunities. In parallel, growth markets have been strengthened by the pandemic and have become even more attractive for immigration from highly taxed and fiscally challenged states.

Track Record

W5 Group has completed a significant number of Innovative Living transactions in the U.S. in just a few years.

Investment Focus


Growth markets and the suburbs have benefited from the pandemic. Aging Millennials are seeking better housing with more space and better school systems.

Single-family Rentals

Historically high home prices, limited access to credit, and an aging society have created increasing demand for single-family homes to rent.

Student Housing

Purpose-built properties are required to supplement old and limited stock. The ever-increasing demand of purpose-built housing with common areas and amenities are essential to meet the expectations of younger generations.


Co-living caters to the young sharing economy and modern consumer preferences. This segment is growing strongly, especially after the pandemic. It offers tenants in metropolitan areas affordable living space combined with a 24/7 live, work and share environment.
