DUBAI, 18 May 2018: Dubai’s property developer, First Group, is partnering with Southeast Asian real estate investment advisor, IQI Global.
The Dubai company will promote its portfolio of hotels and hotel apartments to IQI Global clientele throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
IQI Global has a presence in key growth markets such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Vietnam.
The First Group’s portfolio in Dubai includes Business Bay, Jumeirah Village, Dubai Marina, and Palm Jumeirah.
First Group has forged partnerships with global hotel management firms including Wyndham Hotel Group and the well-known Singaporean owned Millennium Hotels & Resorts.
The company’s Dubai-based freehold hotel real estate offerings include the world’s largest TRYP by Wyndham and premium three and four-star Millennium brands.
Commenting on the partnership with IQI Global, First Group’s chief executive officer, Rob Burns, said the firm was committed to developing its presence in fast-growing markets with a view to promoting Dubai as one of the world’s top property investment destinations.
“Dubai’s emergence as the Middle East’s first global city is generating unrivalled opportunities for smart investors looking to capitalise on the city’s incredible growth,” he said.
IQI Global CEO Kashif Ansari added: “I feel that Dubai is not marketed properly in this part of the world where Southeast Asia represents a population of more than 600 million people – many of whom love to invest in property,” he said.
