Barcelona, May 26th, 2017.- Servihabitat, the leading servicer for the management of real estate and financial assets, has increased the total value of its sales by more than 11%, reaching the €1.645 billion. The portfolio of assets under management also increased by 4.8% at the end of 2016, to 239,132 units with a value of about €50 billion. This increase in the portfolio is due, among other things, to the consolidation of diversification in the profile of its clients and to the penetration into the integral wealth management of large companies, thanks to the knowledge acquired during its more than 25 years of experience in assets management for financial institutions and other clients. At the same time, the role of asset management services and the growth in the advisory field has been outstanding.
In line with the increase in management volume, the increase of 45.5% in financial assets is noteworthy, reaching almost 18,000 units, a fact that shows the significant increase in debt management at the end of the year.
Furthermore, the servicer’s turnover has advanced to reach €285 million, a 14.8% increase over 2015.
The wide coverage of the commercial network, with more than 7,000 points of sale, of which more than 2,000 are partner agents (APIs), has contributed to the increase in the number of sales, surpassing 19,000 real estate units sold, including parking spaces and storage areas. At the same time, the servicer also has a strong online presence thanks to its commercial website www.servihabitat.com, which the digital audience ranking by the independent company ComScore rated, at the end of 2016, as the top real estate servicing website in the market.
All of this growth in volume of activity has also been accompanied by an increase in the Company’s structure, whose team has reached 533 professionals, an increase of 17.7% over 2015.
For Julián Cabanillas, CEO of Servihabitat, with these good results “we have reached and even surpassed our forecasts in terms of the portfolio of managed assets and gross operating profit. These two parameters reveal, on the one hand, that we are meeting the efficiency expectations of our clients who turn to us to manage their assets, and on the other, that these good practices boost the trust clients place in us and help expand the services we provide”.
Rentals and new construction grow
The company has by far the largest rental portfolio in the market, closing the last year with the management of almost 60,500 units, including parking spaces and storage areas, which was 8.1% more than in 2015.
In terms of building, Servihabitat finished 2016 with more than 2,000 new construction homes underway.
