About Us

ARA Venn (formerly Venn Partners) is a specialist investment manager in European real estate private debt, founded in 2009 and with offices in the UK and Spain and an affiliate office in the Netherlands.

We specialise in creating investment products and providing investment management services that provide investors access to compelling risk-return opportunities, whilst satisfying borrower demand for competitive, efficient and transparent loan product.

To achieve this, we have a team of experienced professionals that pull together credit origination, underwriting, liability structuring and risk management skills, and a deep understanding of investor and borrower requirements.

ARA Venn serves the investment needs of a diversified group of government entities, leading global institutions and private investors. We underwrite and invest in our transactions, aligning ourselves with our investors and borrowers.

In 2020, Venn Partners welcomed ARA Asset Management Limited (ARA), a real assets fund manager with a global reach, as a shareholder to help drive our next phase of growth.

As part of its investor-operator philosophy, it also operates a real estate management services division with local teams to manage its assets worldwide. ARA’s multi-platform, multi-product global fund management strategy, combined with its dedicated teams with in-depth local knowledge and expertise, enables the Group to offer enduring value to investors.
