The Sorgente Group operates with three holding companies, Sorgente Group of America Corp (New York - Veronica Mainetti), Sorgente Group International Holding Ltd (London - Paola Mainetti), Sorgente Group Spa (Rome - Valter Mainetti), in the field of real estate investments and finance. The operative real estate companies, financial and real estate services companies are 60 and are located in Italy, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, USA, United Arab Emirates and Brazil.
The total real estate assets owned by the funds and the underlying companies, together with the managed assets amounts to over $ 6 billion (as of December 31, 2014).
The Sorgente Group, specialized in investment and real estate financing sectors, has origins dating back to 1919 in the USA and 1910 in Italy.
In the USA, through a series of companies which are still part of the Group today, it began to develop its entrepreneurial activities, distinguishing itself in the New York real estate market through a company specialized in multi-storey steel structures and by participating in the construction of several buildings, including the expansion of the N.Y. Stock Exchange building in 1923 (Trowbridge and Livingstone project) and the construction of Van Alen's Chrysler Building in 1928.
Initially, the main production sectors addressed in Italy involved precision mechanics and construction components intended for Italy's post-war development with tenders for big technological plants on behalf of public and private contractors among which the Synchrotron of Frascati, the Alfa Romeo in Arese, and the Steel Mills at Terni. In the 1970s, various real estate and construction initiatives were developed in Italy and abroad. At the end of the 1990s the Sorgente Group was reorganized with its activities being directed towards the real estate financing sector, with the aim of carrying out investments and establishing real estate funds. Sorgente SGR was thus established.
Since 2001, the Sorgente Group has launched 32 real estate funds.
