Hello and welcome!

My name is Naiyer Jawaid and I work as a real estate feasibility manager and here I blog about real estate finance, feasibility study, development analysis and investment. I’m passionate about real estate development and investment.

I have an MBA in Finance from XLRI Jamshedpur and Civil Engineering degree from Aligarh University. I am passionate about Real Estate as an asset class and real estate investment analytics. This blog is my platform for sharing what I learn about real estate development, investment analysis and Excel and new ways of presenting data.


After graduating in civil engineering I worked with few construction companies before joining MBA. After MBA I joined an investment bank and was responsible for real estate portfolio. My last job was with a real estate developer; where I was responsible for the financial feasibility of a under construction mixed-use development of worth over USD 5.0 billion. I was also responsible for financial evaluation of potential future developments, joint ventures and strategic collaboration.

My specialties include real estate finance, project appraisals, property finance, real estate funds, hotel feasibility studies, mixed-use development feasibility studies and real estate mix optimization.
