Talking about the growth, Shiv Parekh, Founder, hBits said, “Fractional ownership is a new concept in formal set up but the concept existed in the country for many years. We are focusing on popularizing the concept and offering best properties with high returns to build the trust of the investment community. As a company, we have grown at a good pace and hope to continue our success rate. We would like to thank our investors for keeping faith in our capabilities. The time is ripe to invest in commercial real estate and Fractional Ownership is one of the safest investments to own a pie in the grade A assets. Consumers can not only earn handsome monthly returns but also receive appreciation in the value of capital invested.”

Karan Wadhwa of 9advisors (family office of Ambit group CEO Ashok Wadhwa ) said, “We are looking for disrupters of conventional business models that have remained unchanged for long gestations . hBits’s tech enabled solution has shown immense business growth in the last one year making it a promising company which can change the face of commercial real estate .We have full faith in their capabilities and look forward to kickstarting this journey with them.

What the Director has to say:

Ankush Ahuja, Director, of Business Development and Investment hBits, “We are in the process of closing a few more properties in the coming quarters to add value to our investors. The returns offered by our grade A commercial real-estate assets are better than many investment tools and comparatively our asset class is safer than many investment instruments available in the market with steady returns. The investors can have a pie of a commercial Grade A asset with an investment of INR 25 lakhs which can help them plan their future.”

The Indian real estate market is expected to hit USD 1 trillion by 2030 and contribute 13% to the country’s GDP by 2025. Increasing population in India and scarcity of land helped boost the concept of fractional ownership of CRE in India.
