Formed in 2006, the Little Group focused initially on opportunities in the property sector through Little Projects and Little Real Estate, and in philanthropy. We’ve since expanded investments across a range of enterprises including aviation and lifestyle. Opportunities are pursued either solely by the Group or with like-minded partners where distinct value creation can be gained, delivering benefits to the Group, our partners and the community.

We pursue only those opportunities that we’re passionate about and where we feel we can make a substantial, long-term difference through our experience, our know-how and our capital.
