On the occasion of the visit of His Highness Aga Khan to Lisbon upon the invitation of the Portuguese Government, marking the year-long celebration of his Diamond Jubilee as the head of Shia Ismaili Muslim Community, Tamea International organised a Real Estate Forum for the Ismaili investors.
A large number of Ismaili Community members were welcomed to Lisbon between 5th and 11th of July to commemorate the special occasion of Aga Khan's 60 years since he acceded to the office of Ismaili Imamat in 1957. Tamea International, together with the Hercules Fund, co-hosted a Real Estate Forum for the limited number of investors from the Ismaili community in order to present Lisbon as a hot real estate investment destination and to showcase some of the development projects of interest. The event featured presentations of Kamrudin Shams, Chairman of the Shams Group and co-founder of The Hercules Real Estate Fund, and Tariq El-Asad, CEO and General Manager of Tamea International. Presentations included Portugal's real estate market analysis, showcased a selection of the ongoing property development projects in Lisbon, as well as other real estate investment opportunities.
Around forty guests attended the forum held at Second Home Lisbon, where Tamea International is seated. Investors had the opportunity to enquire about potential investment opportunities, talk to the Tamea real estate team and enjoy the innovative and creative environment of the first co-working space opened in Lisbon.
Tamea International was honoured to be a part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and wishes to thank all our guests for attending the Forum.
Portugal and Ismaili Community
In June 2015, the Ismaili Imamat concluded and signed a landmark agreement for the establishment of a Seat of the Ismaili Imamat in Portugal. The agreement, which was unanimously ratified by the Parliament of the Portuguese Republic, builds on a series of earlier accords and provides an enabling framework for the facilitation of the Imamat’s work. The agreement will result in intensified cooperation between Portugal and the Ismaili Imamat in improving the quality of lives of people within the Republic of Portugal and elsewhere around the world.
