Founded in 2012 by Robert Whitton, a proven real-estate business leader, Affinity GRE focuses on regenerative development opportunities which combine risk-managed investor returns with positive social and environmental gains. Affinity GRE’s reach is global, but its approach is decidedly local.
Affinity GRE works closely with local authorities to meet their housing and workplace needs to provide community-focused, mixed-use developments using the latest building technology and materials to minimise environmental impact.
Delivering locally at scale often requires the support of a global network. Affinity has built and maintains a strong presence in the USA, the Middle East and China, providing offshore investors and investment funds with active participation in the UK real estate market.
Affinity GRE is led by an experienced and internationally recognised management team which has advised on, managed and transacted global deals worth over £3.5 billion. Affinity GRE is supported by a team of entrepreneurial, technical and creative executives through its specialist advisory subsidiary, Affinity Global Advisers Ltd, which provides full-service development and project management.
