India’s urban population is expected to grow to 600 million in 2030, and meeting demands of growing cities will require housing, office space, retail malls etc.
ICICI Venture RE seeks to leverage certain key growth drivers for the Indian RE industry including higher spending for household assets especially in particular Affordable Housing segment, significant impetus from Government for the Housing industry, better availability of finance, changing real estate developer profiles and reforms implemented in the last few years, especially the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016.
ICICI Venture RE is uniquely placed to provide be-spoke private debt financing solutions (and historically even private equity solutions) for developers.
Given ICICI Bank’s dominant presence in the Indian real estate market, ICICI Venture RE leverages Group linkages in various areas such as construction financing, housing finance, property services, etc.
