Executive Team at Davos Real Estate Group Launch New Mobile Real Estate Investment App

Davos Real Estate Group have introduced a new mobile app, “Davos CAP Calculator” on the iPhone and Android platforms. It allows real estate investors to estimate the return on investment from a potential property.

Davos Real Estate Group (REG) is an independent subsidiary of Davos Financial Group, and a leader in the Latin American real estate investment market, offering comprehensive financial advice for more than twenty years. REG helps each investor formulate a strategy based on their individual needs. Their team consists of licensed professional specialists in multiple financial spheres, bringing their expertise to clients in specific investment sectors.

Davos REG Executive Director Gerard González worked closely with application developer Tecknolution on the function and design of the Davos CAP Calculator. The app allows users to estimate after-expense profits for a given investment property. This is the first release in a series of complementary apps which will give clients the ability to identify properties and forward historical real estate reports to their Davos REG agent using live chat.

CEO David Osio relates, “In line with our objective of providing the most comprehensive financial advice to our clients, we recognized the advantages of offering them a mobile application that allows us to better counsel them in investing in U.S. real estate.”

González adds “We developed the Davos CAP Calculator as an innovative tool to allow investors to have a much clearer financial vision when considering a property. With this app, clients can estimate the price of rent that best suits their income target.”

Upcoming apps include a “Mortgage Calculator” which will give Davos’ clients the ability to estimate their mortgage based on projections by the bank on funding period and interest rate.

Davos REG has expanded their vision in recent months. In addition to developing the Davos CAP Calculator, the company has been developing new strategic partnerships with real estate agents in Europe, initially in Spain. Their overall agent base has grown by more than 60%, which has resulted in sales growth of 75% in the first two quarters of 2016.

Davos founder David Osio has extensive experience in business management and financial services. He has been a leader in the Venezuelan and Latin American market in banking, financial advising, and financial law. Osio graduated with honors from the Universidad Catolica Andres Bello in Caracas, Venezuela, earning his degree with emphases in international studies, finance, and banking. He later did postgraduate studies at the
Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración.

After highly successful stints in marketing and banking law, Osio ventured out on his own to form the Davos Financial Group of Companies in 1993. Today, the Davos group is an eminent name, in both the financial arena and social responsibility.

Sanjay Shah Autism Rocks

The great thing about is that it provides the opportunity for activists and philanthropists to bring attention to important causes, and unite people around those causes while funneling much needed cash into them. It is a platform to truly bring to fruition a global community. If ever there has been a cause that is worthy of the attention of the global community, it is Autism Rocks. It was started by Sanjay Shah whose five year old son, Nikhil, was diagnosed with autism about three years ago. Upon his son’s diagnosis, Shah immediately sprung into action to see not only what he could do for his son, but how he could be of service to all children who have to cope with the disorder.

Autism Rocks rocks was founded in 2014. The charity puts on private, invite-only concerts, with all of the proceeds going to the Autism Research Trust, or ART. The idea for Autism Rocks came from Shah’s love for his son, his passion for music, and a chance encounter with international rap superstar, Snoop Dogg. From that, Shah was had a light bulb moment which prompted him to use his finances and connections to throw a private concert with the iconic rock/pop star, Prince, as the first performer. The first event was a success, and now Lenny Kravitz, Michael Buble`, and Drake are slated to do private concerts for the charity as well.

Sanjay Shah is no ordinary man, and not just because he was a successful hedge fund manager for Merrill-Lynch, Morgan-Stanley, and ING among other financial institutions. Even the fact that he started his own brokerage firm after being made redundant in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008-09 is not what makes Shah unique. What stands out most about this father and philanthropist was his response in the face of an utterly trying time, finding out his son is autistic.

There was no time for a pity party. The native Londoner who’d recently relocated his family to Dubai immediately went to work to see how he could be of service to the Dubai Autism Centre. He was told by an administrator there that the Centre’s immediate need was for minibuses to transport children; so Shah went out and bought to Hyundai minibuses for them.

Even before starting Autism Rocks, the former investment banke was a trustee on the board of ART. He used his pool of business connections as well as his own resources to aid in the research of Autism. Accordig to Shah, he is not looking for a cure to Autism, saying “I wouldn’t change anything about my son – but like many parents around the world I want to better understand the ‘condition’ so I can better understand Nikhil and how he may be thinking…”
