The company’s operations are split into two: the investment and development divisions. EEH invests its own money and that of investors in strategic real estate projects across the UK, providing value through its team’s expert designers, developers, financiers, and project managers. A section of its website reads, “EEH Ventures specializes in achieving a 5% rental yield on its residential investments and purchase with a discount on the market price.”
Eldar’s company is also involved in brokerage. While this is not its core business, the firm has mediated thousands of deals for its clients looking to buy or sell block apartments mostly in the middle-class areas of London.
To date, EEH has sealed more than 3,000 house sales. According to sources, Israeli real estate and hotels tycoon Yakir Gabay is one of the major customers of the company. Mr. Gabay resides in London and is said to have purchased hundreds of apartments in the UK through EEH Ventures.
Gabay who has stakes in dozens of companies mainly operates in German and is said to be a long-time member of the billionaires club.
Eldar is currently engaged in capital investments, among other things. He is said to be working closely with Israeli real estate company BSR Group, where he holds the largest stake alongside other renowned investors including Nachshon Kivity and Roi Gil, Eldar’s former partner in Gibor Sport.
BSR has worked on a number of projects in London. One such project was the conversion of an office building purchased for £40 million in Wembley into a complex with 227-350 small apartments. Developers hope to sell the property for over £100 million.
