Investing in people to build the future
The InvestiRE Master Class was born in 2019 as a division of the Finnat Academy from an educational project idea of some InvestiRE managers. The intent is to create a premium corporate training structure composed of professionals from within the Group, assisted by external contributors from leading figures from the academic, banking and financial sectors.
Investire Master Class... building our future manager
The goal of the project is to make solid know-how available to the Group's clients and employees, offering finance & investment training specific to the Real Estate sector and curated by a leading company in the field.
Investire's Master Class is dedicated to Architect Anna Pasquali, Top Manager of the Sgr and undisputed standout in the Italian Real Estate sector, whose passion, dedication and great professional and human commitment to Real Estate we wish to remember, with the hope that she may be an inspiration to all aspiring managers, in the full conviction that these values are a founding element of the Group.
Dr Stefano Deleo, head of the company's Corporate Finance and Planning area, is the director of the Investire Master Class.
The Educational method
Thanks to an innovative educational method called IMCD, the Investire Master Class builds training paths that expand and complete the skills needed to successfully manage Real Estate investments and assets.
A training course to transfer excellence and expertise
The program is aimed at cross-transferring the best skills, identifying talents in the company, and building to the maximum professionalization of real estate managers.
The IMCD educational method is tailored to develop the strengths of individuals through teamwork, exchanging ideas, and practical exercises, providing complete business awareness regardless of the business sector they belong to.

The 2023 Advanced Executive Program course provides the skills needed for Real Estate investment management by addressing all typical issues and topics in the field.
The methodology includes a training course divided into modules, each of which will address, by subject area, the topics that typically fall under the management of a Real Estate investment. Planned theoretical sessions alternate with practical case-solving sessions
The course includes 18 participants, 4 coaches and 4 finance managers, structured in a part-time formula for a total of 9 weekends.
What they say about us
Well-structured and organized Master, enriched by highly specialized and professional instructors from both academic and business backgrounds. The training course offers a comprehensive view and experience of all phases of the real estate investment process by masterfully combining and integrating theoretical sessions with practical ones: the formula -which includes practical exercises from the start as well as the division into study groups, which at the end of the course will be called upon to simulate the entire management cycle of a portfolio, - is the basis of the program's success. Another key ingredient for the success of this Master's program is the corporate spirit evident throughout the training days and at the various team-building events organized. A real kudos to the minds behind this project and to the corporate setting that provided all the necessary resources to make it happen. Admiration and recognition to the fellow students, coaches, finance managers and all the corporate figures involved in different ways but, in particular, to Stefano - known as "the market" - who, with a true spirit of self-sacrifice, used everything he had at his disposal to make this an unforgettable experience both from a professional and a human point of view."
"Dear Dr. Deleo,
Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to participate in the SFRE Master's program, it was a very highly specialized experience; it was definitely a challenging course, which provided 360-degree training on the main economic-financial tools and basic principles needed to make, manage and enhance real estate investments. The course provided a comprehensive overview of sustainability in the value creation process in real estate investments, emphasizing ESG criteria. The added value of the Master's course was in combining theory with practical sessions and tests to verify the skills acquired; this allowed theory to be put into practice and memorized. You, with your professionalism, passion and dedication to your work, were able to transfer to us participants the team spirit as a time for discussion and exchange of professionalism."
"My experience in the Master's program was truly unique. It had the ability to combine theory with practice, touching on topics that cover all aspects related to the evaluation of a project. As for me, I learned a lot of important notions, and to understand, as a person who is normally an investor, how an SGR thinks is a great added value. I thank everyone for the great experience from which I learned beyond all expectations. Thank you"
"An excellent educational experience based on an excellent organization. The Master's program traverses the entire "real estate industry production cycle" through the input of professionals representing all the different players in the industry. Investing is a welcoming and stimulating environment. The Master has a broad "practical" connotation that implies an immediate and direct absorption of the proposed Know-how. The division of participants into teams simulates the relational dynamics of an organization, becoming a moment of discussion and exchange with other participants. Each team is supported by a "Coach" and a "Finance Manager" whose contribution actually represents an additional training moment albeit channeled into the practical exercises. The final Business game was an enjoyable experience despite the complexity proposed that was certainly an educational challenge won by those who designed and implemented it."
"The Real Estate Strategic Finance Master's program does not suffer from its youth. Or rather, in an absolutely fresh and dynamic context created by and for young professionals, one can feel the fluidity typical of a course that has been tried and tested for years despite the fact that it is only in its second edition. The program, absolutely comprehensive for practitioners, curated in all its in-depth areas and timed to the minute, is carried by lecturers of unquestionable quality and experience from various backgrounds in a way that both consolidates knowledge already acquired and teaches content from scratch: the continuous alternation of theory and practice prevents moments of boredom or difficulty in following the steps and, at least in my case, always kept interest high in a non-imposing way. A perfect executive format to complement work and personal commitments perhaps all too briefly."
"The Master's program gave me insight into mechanisms that I, from the business side, knew only the results of. Besides having sincerely enjoyed it, it was very educational and I am sure it will be very useful to me in my professional career. I was very impressed with the passion with which it was organized and run, condensing so many topics in such a short time without it being overwhelming really made it a unique experience. I really thank you for including me in this beautiful experience and I hope to see it continue because it is really worth it.”
"The SFRE Master's program was a great opportunity to consolidate my current knowledge and acquire new knowledge. Thanks to the lectures given by industry professionals and the different discussion opportunities with other Master's participants from different business and practical backgrounds, I had the chance to observe the various topics covered from different perspectives. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more about the strategic issues of the Real Estate industry and grow professionally in a positive and professional atmosphere. I want to reiterate my congratulations to the entire organization and direction of the Master's program. I am glad to have participated.
Thanks to Stefano, the Academy and all the Master's teachers/coaches for the opportunity."
"Highly professional is the descriptor that comes to mind to define the experience gained in the Master's program. I highly recommend it to those who want to undertake training in Real Estate or who want to deepen certain aspects of it. The added value compared to other Masters can definitely be summarized as follows: each topic is covered by a different professional, enriching the Master with their many years of experience brought to the field; the incidence of practical sessions is 50%, giving the Master a "learning by doing" approach; the final business game makes you experience (even if only for a few weeks) the real feeling of working at an SGR, and therefore creating relationships and working in a team (I had the immense pride of being part of the winning one the 2022 edition)."
"The work done over the past few months has been intense and highly educational. Thanks to the high level of expertise and professionalism you have put at our disposal, it has been possible to acquire cross-cutting knowledge about the management of real estate assets and the financial - and other - techniques necessary to fully understand the processes involved. Having done the course with colleagues from other backgrounds with which our SGR interacts has also made it possible to strengthen interrelationships and to share common issues, allowing each of us to lift our gaze to a broader view. I advise all my colleagues to join training initiatives of this kind and I thank you for the process."
"The SFRE Master's program was an excellent opportunity to grow and consolidate my ten years of experience in the Real Estate sector. The executive course allowed me to integrate and expand my training and knowledge, addressing operational and concrete issues that are normally carried out by other business functions. A unique experience made possible thanks to the expertise and passion of those who organized and coordinated the course. The final Business Game was a very complex and exciting moment of comparison, in which it was possible to concretely "simulate" everything learned during the course."
"Now that we have come to the end of this course, I can firmly say that the experience I had during this Master's program was highly educational and allowed me to engage with qualified colleagues and professionals, increasing my knowledge and confirming my profound interest in the world of real estate. It was an opportunity for professional and human growth. I learned to use new strategic tools such as the Business Plan, which until now, working in an SGR in the role of project manager, I saw but could not grasp its potential. I take this opportunity to first of all thank my company Investire SGR, for organizing this Master's program and giving me the opportunity to participate; I also thank my work team "London," with whom I established a really collaborative and professional relationship, with the help of our coach Chiara Torelli and our Finance manager Sofia Lima, two Women with whom it was really a pleasure to work and who were the strength of this team."
"It was a very useful experience that we are now recommending to all colleagues. During our course, we have from time to time had the concrete sense that we have grown a little piece, and the professional growth we achieved at the end of the course in just two months was nothing short of incredible. I assure you that all of us students recognize the commitment and sacrifices you and your people made. We are truly grateful. Till next time!"
"While thanking you again for giving me the opportunity to participate in the SFRE Master's program, I again extend my congratulations to the entire Investire SGR team, especially Dr Stefano Deleo for his passion and attention to the success of this Master's program.
"An intense course of personal and professional growth and a valuable opportunity for discussion and sharing, thanks in part to the great professionalism and helpfulness of faculty and tutors. An experience that I would undoubtedly recommend to my colleagues. Thank you for everything!"
"The Master's program is professionally and expertly organized. It allows, even those not in the industry, to immerse themselves with the completeness of information in managing a real estate fund, perfectly understanding its managerial, economic and technical logic."
On Saturday, December 10, 2022, The QI Daily RE devoted its front page to our President Arturo Nattino and the value InvestiRE places on the importance of sharing know-how and expertise between managers and institutional investors.
As a patron and media partner of our InvestiRE Academy, the QI devoted an extensive feature to this project, which this year featured the launch of the Experimental R&D Lab that studied the unexpressed potential of the capital city of Rome with the study of the urban regeneration of the Scalo San Lorenzo Tiburtino.
Dr. Francesca Del Bello, President of the 2nd Municipality of Roma Capitale, was present at the presentation of the 4 Masterplans as a Municipality interested in the development and revitalization potential of its territory.
The Lab was designed by InvestiRE Academy in collaboration with Fortebis, GLA, Boedil Progetti and Polis Ingegneria.
Polis Ingegneria emerged as the winner of the ideas competition. In the complex choice that the evaluating commission had to make, the committee recognized all 4 Masterplans were developed at a very high level and deemed it necessary to assign each one a specific mention for the high quality of the work done, for the technical and technological solutions devised, for the architectural style for the development of 4 "feasible" and absolutely innovative Masterplans.
An advanced training course dedicated to our investors and to the expansion of the know-how of our managers, which confers them with tools and methodologies for a careful and conscious evaluation of Real Estate investments as a whole.
