The net results attained were made possible by a use of capital aimed at highly prestigious buildings, combining a prudential approach with an innovative vision. It was the first Fund to invest abroad, becoming the owner of some of the most prestigious buildings in the world, including the Flatiron Building and Chrysler Building in New York, acquired in 2005 for $430,000,000 and resold after just three years for $800,000,000.
The constant focus on "trophy" real estate has led the Michelangelo Fund to accumulate a collection of unique objects that the subscribers decided not to divest. The Michelangelo portfolio was conveyed into Michelangelo Due, for which Sorgente Group has set new and more ambitious value enhancement targets for its unit holders.
