Byblos’ leadership comes from a tenured history of designing for scalability through innovation and antifragility. Byblos’ Principals have been repeat colleagues across multiple shared ventures and clients. This track record of collaboration and success has shaped the firm’s investment philosophy and ethos. Our leadership team consists of serial entrepreneurs and leading management consultants across startups, enterprises, design, technology, franchising, and finance.

When the pandemic hit in 2019, the group dedicated themselves to developing a philosophy centered on antifragility - working with companies across personal health, consumer luxury, real estate lending, food infrastructure, and blockchain innovation. Prior to the pandemic, the group focused on building and exiting scalable ventures - eventually bringing both these experiences to real estate development and asset management to Byblos.

The Antifragility of Real Estate

Our Joint Venture Investment Program and Asset Management practices are shaped by our ability to develop antifragile assets to endure market shocks and manage risk in every investment.
