Our focus


We build Real Estate property that allows people to live and work in the same place. 

We make people more productive by taking them out of commuting.

We make families prosper by giving them more time with each other!

Goods and services are provided at lower costs and prices, what impact the lives of others.

SUD Fund invests in residential properties that are leased to low-income families who are offered employment opportunities in the same location.

SUD Fund also invests in commercial properties to local entrepreneurs who live within or near planned Urban Developments.

Employment opportunities are created through shared economy and traditional jobs and managed through an NGO designed for this function.


SUD Fund I (Nov/15): is currently investing in the construction of an Outlet Mall in Natal/Brazil segmented in affordable clothing. Merchandise that will be sold in this Outlet called Natal Moda, is primarily made by small and family entrepreneurs, that produce  In-house or small industry.


In Phase I, Natal Moda will generate direct and indirect employment that exceeds  3000 workers, in the following 3 phases, more that 10.000 direct and indirect employment positions will be created.


The construction began in late 2015 and will be concluded by 3Q16, operations will start in 4Q16.

Local employment generation increases local spending that supports higher than market real state returns. SUD Fund I is already performing above projections.

Reason Why

According to the UN data, 500 million homes will be in demand in the next 25 years, most of the low income homes

Affordable homes are typically built in regions with low or no urban infrastructure and far away from employment opportunities.

Large metropolitan regions impose daily commuting routines of 4 to 6 hours per day from dormitory cities and neighborhoods to employment generating centers. This enormous waste of time decreases productivity, and contributes social distress, pollution, violence, as well as government expenditures and deficits.

Companies and Governments present practically all employment opportunities worldwide. Self-employment is viewed as a marginal opportunity for unemployed and risk-taking entrepreneurs. Shared economy with examples of Uber, AirB&B, and others have brought economy of scale to the self-employed.

Shared Economy employment opportunities can unlock billions of hours of productive work that are wasted in commuting, decrease pollution, decrease social stress and provide prosperity to billions that are locked in a “cast-society”.

SUD Fund management sees this opportunity to bring prosperity to thousands of families while providing higher that market returns to real estate investors.


SUD Fund I

SUD Fund I (Nov/15): is currently investing in In-house produced clothing Wholesaler unit that will employ more than 3000 workers. Construction will be concluded by 3Q16, operations will start in 4Q16.

Local employment generation increases local spending that supports higher than market real state returns. SUD Fund I is already performing above projections.

SUD Fund II – In-House work affordable housing development

SUD Fund II is investing a new concept of affordable housing that was designed to provide In-House employment opportunities through telecom technology. The furnished unit and condominium are equipped with high speed fiber optic internet network, IP-pbx systems, virtual servers and contact center software. Lessees will be able to offer contact center services within their apartments without having to physically commuting to contact centers. Lessees will be formally self-employed and will contract technology services from the local NGO (AABRE). The NGO provides open source systems that can be personalized by third party consulting firms or by contractor IT personnel. Contact center companies will be able to enjoy a 60% cost reduction while providing In-house local employment with 100% higher wages.

SUD Fund II purchases units from local Special Purpose company at a fixed price that will allow a projected 10% return on investment in lease plus a projected increase in property prices indexed by inflation, totaling a projected gross 20% returns per annum.
Productivity gains and local income generation were not factored in the unit price, so fund managers project additional returns in it happened in SUD Fund I
