Fifth Element was established in 2016 to support Asian investors seeking to enter European property markets, in particular London, Berlin and Barcelona. We also provide an easy, on the ground solution for European property developers looking to market their developments in Hong Kong and across Asia.

At Fifth Element, we only focus on European real-estate markets, primarily Berlin, London and Barcelona. This enables us to dedicate time and resources into fully understanding the cities we believe are right for investment and delivering highly detailed information to our clients.

We believe London, Berlin and Barcelona currently maintain the right conditions for market entry with strong macro-economic cases underlying investor sentiments. Learn more about these markets here.

We facilitate introductions between investors and developers with a transparent and straightforward approach.

We go beyond simply delivering good advice. We offer a seamless service that takes the pain of property negotiation away from our clients. We research the markets, source the developers, research the projects, negotiate on behalf of our clients and handle the onward asset management that is crucial to a successful investment.

Over the course of many years, we have built up trusted relationships with key European developers, many of whom only work with Fifth Element for their service delivery into Asia. These are credible developers with track records that will work with our clients to support the long-term viability of European real-estate on investors’ portfolios.
