Fairway has established itself as the partner of choice of many investors and investment vehicle management companies in the field of their core trade (structuring, investments, management and arbitration) but also of industrial companies operating in extremely diverse sectors such as the mass retail sector, the automotive industry, the healthcare sector, telecommunications and the media, for their thought process on the ownership structure of their real estate tools and variations thereto.
