Recent falls in the values of real estate across Europe mean that existing investors are seeking to restructure their financing or portfolios, while some new funds are entering the market. Many of the latter are or will be Shariah compliant investors. WW Advisors can provide advisory services to all these market participants to help them achieve their business objectives. While our initial focus is likely to be on UK investments, our remit is definitely pan-European."
