Assetz Property Group specializes in fund management, warehousing, residential and commercial.

Bangalore, Assetz’s Indian headquarters, boasts both residential and commercial projects by the firm, including two IT tech parks and 10 different residential projects across the city. The high returns they create for their investors and their excellent track record with private equity investments have placed Assetz Property Group as one of the fastest growing real estate developers in India.
