RECAS Group

RECAS Group (formerly Real Estate Capital Asset Services Limited) was founded in 2004 by Ivan Ko, its current chairman, who has over 25 years experience in real estate development and finance experience. The Denzity team first met Ivan at a PropTech event in Hong Kong and discussed the real estate industry’s future and what kinds of innovation will lead to the greatest impact in elevating the global real estate market.

Ivan identifies that PropTech can bring a positive impact to the real estate industry and RECAS Group believes in Denzity’s mission to serve an identified gap in the real estate crowdfunding market by matching everyday investors with the best possible investment opportunities available around the world.

Ivan has actively participated in PropTech hackathons and events, most recently the Asia PropTech Innovathon (pictured below) as one of the judges and where Denzity was fortunate enough to meet Ivan.

From Ivan’s point of view, innovation and technology services to close gaps in the traditional real estate market, whether unidentified or previously thought impossible. For this reason, PropTech may not receive industry-wide recognition now but is a wave of positive change. From his experience, real estate owners in Hong Kong have generated a decent return by being inefficient in buying and holding a real estate portfolio which has simply experienced tremendous capital appreciation over the recent two decades.

This is why he believes Hong Kong should be at the forefront of PropTech development and tackle key issues like accessibility since Hong Kong is one of the most unaffordable residential markets globally. Ivan recognizes that consistent small improvements in technology and innovation will improve the quality of real estate services provided in the best cost-benefit to corporate users.

To become a leading PropTech hub, Hong Kong provides a strong international environment where access to capital, rule of law (such as IP protection), free flow of information, ease of setting up a business, welcoming attitude to foreign workers and new economic growth companies make Hong Kong a sweet spot for any PropTech firm.

PropTech firms need only bring their innovation to strive in a best practice environment of leading real estate developers and investors. This is a market where “dreams” turn into reality. Ivan supports PropTech firms and Hong Kong as a forward-looking city to become recognized as an industry leader.

As a fully integrated real estate firm, RECAS invites PropTech entrepreneurs from all around the world to build their innovation in Hong Kong. Ivan and his team bring a tremendous amount of experience, connections, and wisdom. As a PropTech firm or investor, you can send Ivan an email here if you would like to seek his advice.
