Real Estate Investment
Since 2011 Veddis has invested in real estate projects internationally and by applying our commercial and financial acumen we bolster our portfolio with a balance of risk and return.
Both independently and together with partners in the US, UK, Dubai, Ireland and India, we undertake a variety of refurbishment, redevelopment, and development projects with a particular focus on offices, residential and industrial units.
The Veddis team are actively involved from acquisition through to completion, applying our specialist knowledge to advise our partners and ensure the success of the projects we undertake.
We invest in organisations working at the intersection of technology, policy, and impact. With a mission to create deep and irreversible social impact, we work directly with the government on effective public service delivery.
We take an evidence-based approach to support institutions doing radical work. We hope to bring analytical rigour and a collaborative spirit to philanthropic investments with a goal to achieve measurable outsized impact.
Since we began our journey in 2006, we have worked directly with multiple state governments and invested in over 100 organisations, representing some of the most innovative initiatives in the social sector.
