UI International Limited is a boutique advisory which provides due diligence and customized investment advisory services focused on urban development. It is an independent advisory specialized in new market entry, risk mitigation in emerging markets (e.g. respect of capital, adjudication of contracts), and urban planning. With special focus on urbanization and public policy UI International serves clients through fieldwork, data analysis, site selection, partner screening, deal origination, project finance advisory, project management, and localisation solutions (e.g. translation support). Success of any project is often rooted at the earliest stages of development and this is where we get involved to help manage risk in subsequent phases of development.
UI International incorporates a bottom-up research approach when approaching complex urban issues and strategy in emerging markets. We help you understanding district politics and micro-location trends vital to succeed in order to better manage short term and long term risks.
We work with reputable companies to supplement our services. These are partnerships that we have built up over many years with local teams in the markets we operate in.
Focus: mixed-use development, commercial acquisitions, coworking asset light strategies, real estate technology innovation, ”smart cities”, and site selection.
We currently are engaged in Hong Kong, China, S. Korea, Germany, and the US.
