J.V Partnership

A joint venture (JV) is a business arrangement between two or more parties that agree to combine some of their resources for a particular purpose. In the property sector, developers will typically join forces to compensate for aspects of their project they lack in, for instance, finance. If a developer is unable to fund a potential project by himself, he will search an investor who can obtain the gap between his level of equity and the capital that is needed to realize the project or the investment.
