India Investment Strategy

India is a focus market for Taurus, underpinning its growth markets investment strategy that was first launched in Turkey and Argentina in 2006. With inherent, long term advantages such as a massive domestic market of 1.3 Billion people and a young, aspiring demographic profile, India has quickly developed into one of the global economy’s growth engines.

Taurus’ investments in India are concentrated in the Office and Retail/Mixed Use asset classes, with a secondary focus on Mid-scale Housing and Co-living. The preferred investment strategy is Build-to-Core Development, which involves ground-up development of institutional quality, substantially pre-leased assets.

With the largest college-educated workforce on the planet, India has rapidly developed into a global hub of the technology and business services industry, at the same time as its domestic services sector has demonstrated explosive growth. Large Indian firms and the global capability centers of multinational companies alike are absorbing Class A office space in record volumes in primary cities like Bangalore and Chennai, as well as in secondary destinations like Trivandrum.

India is the most exciting Retail real estate market in the world, driven by a variety of factors including rapidly growing consumption, an ever expanding 300+ million strong, urban middle-class, a relative paucity of Class A retail spaces and the absence of safe, non-polluted public spaces in India cities(read more). Contrary to the ongoing rationalization in the Retail industry in the US and other developed markets, the Indian market is still in its initial growth phase and Taurus is tapping into this through the development of mixed-use projects, centered around Class A retail and entertainment centers, that leverage the emerging maxim of Experiential Retail.

As it strives to develop a world-class portfolio of Office and Retail/Mixed-Use assets across South India, Taurus is leveraging its decades-long experience with both asset classes across markets including the US, Germany, UK, Argentina and Turkey where it has acquired or developed/is developing over 8.4 Million square feet of Office assets, worth more than 2 Billion USD and over 8.5 Million square feet of Retail/Mixed Use assets, valued at more than 1.9 Billion USD.
