With over three decades of experience,
Drapac Capital Partners is a highly specialized international property investment group.

At Drapac, we identify opportunities through unorthodox means and focus on the crucial balance between risk management and performance. We have consistently outperformed the broader market and achieved a premium track record of returns across multiple asset classes. With a proven growth trajectory, including expansion into the U.S. in 2011, our current portfolio includes over 12,000 acres of land across multiple markets, with a gross development pipeline of over U.S. $8 billion.

We pay attention
to the details.

What We Do

Drapac takes the long-term view – forged through obsessive research and attention to detail. For this reason, we are able to consistently make rational investment decisions.

The dynamic nature of the world’s property markets continuously presents compelling investment opportunities. To capitalize on this, we strategically identify undervalued property markets and target development sites — both urban high-rise and master-planned suburban land in select cities.

The Drapac Investment Model is a scientific approach to property investment that focuses on identifying opportunities offering significant upside potential, with minimal downside risk. Further, throughout the lifecycle of each investment, we ensure returns are maximized through proactive management and the efficient execution of value-add strategies.
