Property, especially commercial property, is the cornerstone of Louis Group's business and investing in property forms the foundation our long-term strategy for wealth creation. Louis Group regards property as a secure and profitable asset class.

Louis Group has an extensive retail, office, industrial and residential property portfolio in South Africa, England, Germany and Switzerland. The global property portfolio forms the backbone of our expanding property, financial services and entrepreneurial enterprise.


Louis Group Property Services provides a complete suite of management services to the residential and commercial property industry in South Africa, England, Germany and Switzerland. Since every property acquisition is made with its ultimate sale in mind, it follows that properties need to be maintained to the highest standards. Our Property Management teams ensure that properties are well maintained and systematically cared for, that the right tenants are found and that the best lease terms are negotiated. In addition, we oversee landlord and tenant issues and attend to all statutory compliance matters.


Louis Group understands that when considering acquiring a property, priority should be placed on ensuring that it enjoys a good location and on securing strong tenants to guarantee a consistent income stream. The Louis Group Properties teams leverage the market knowledge and negotiating power that come from our experience in this field. Highly experienced and professional brokers provide traditional broking services, including sales, leasing, management and project marketing for property developers.


Property Development

We offer clients co-investment opportunities through strategic partnerships in the development of commercial and residential properties. Our philosophy is to seek like-minded partners and then to allocate capital and human resources to the project. We oversee the demographic, environmental impact, structural and economic research undertaken prior to a property development. Once a project is initiated, however, our primary focus is the provision and oversight of financial engineering, which is our area of expertise. This approach empowers partners in the development project to exercise their specific strengths and to collectively bring the project to a successful completion.
