Tranio 2018: construction of residential buildings abroad

In 2018, Tranio offered its customers new ready-made solutions for investment: its own projects for the reconstruction and construction of real estate abroad. Plans for 2019 include creating a cross-border online platform for real estate investments for investors with a budget of 500 euros.

12 value added projects in Europe
In 2018, the Tranio team helped clients acquire about 200 properties. 78 of them are commercial properties that provide our customers with a stable income in foreign currency. The company’s revenue increased one and a half times compared with 2017.

The new direction of the company is its own value added projects. At the moment we are already implementing 12 projects of construction and reconstruction of real estate in Germany, Greece, Great Britain and Spain.

“We are witnessing the formation of the next generation of investors who have already acquired the experience of rental business or other investments abroad and who are willing to take reasonable risks for the sake of profitability of 8–15% per annum,” said Georgiy Kachmazov, managing partner of Tranio.

In December, the construction of the first floor of a residential building in Hamburg is coming to an end – this is one of the Tranio projects launched in 2018

Tranio will offer investors three types of solutions depending on their budget: individual projects (from 2 million euros), club deals (100 thousand – 2 million euros) and crowdfunding (from 500 euros). Investments in the rental business and projects for construction and reconstruction of real estate abroad will be available to investors online.

The number of visitors to the Russian and English versions of the Tranio site has increased by a quarter: today we register 9–11 thousand visits per day.
