About us

White River provides real estate asset management and investment consulting services to Italian and foreign family offices, as well as retail and institutional investors in need of localized operational expertise. Our team is made up of professionals who combine hands-on real estate knowledge with investment skills. Over the past decade, we have invested in and managed apartments, office buildings, hotels and warehouses valued more than €1.5 billion in both Europe and the United States.

With representatives located in Italy’s major cities, White River attends to clients’ real estate management and consulting needs with vision, discretion and high standards of professionalism. Thanks to our experience, we can assist our clients in all aspects of buying and owning real estate. We cover the entire life cycle of property assets, including deal structuring, financing, managing, marketing, accounting, tax and legal.

White River utilizes an institutional, professional and disciplined approach to investing in and managing real estate. We believe that the real value of a property resides in its occupancy and, therefore, in the quality of the cash flow it produces. For this reason, our effort to create long lasting value for our clients always starts from sustainable property cash flows.
