Our Story

Enriching the lives of everyone

Zisk Properties was founded by two brothers, Javed and Zafer, in 2016 to help solve the challenges that exist in buying and investing in the property market.

Property markets are slow to evolve, opaque and inefficient. While some countries like the UK are better than others, there is still significant scope to innovate and improve. Areas that need consideration include making transactions more efficient, faster, increasing security (more relevant for certain countries), reducing the number of parties involved in a transaction, and most importantly, reducing costs. In addition, there are a considerable number of challenges associated with purchasing an investment property, including:

  • Large lump sums required;
  • Having access to good property deals through a strong network in the property market;
  • A complicated and daunting process;
  • The hassle to manage all the involved stakeholders – sellers, estate agents, lawyers and surveyors;
  • Extremely time-consuming – a property transaction can easily take up to 6 months or even longer. Furthermore, managing a property effectively not only requires time but also relevant skills and experience.

Zisk Properties was founded precisely to tackle these challenges, with the aim to innovate while helping everyone (who qualifies) to invest in properties with ease and convenience.

The use of latest technologies and data analytics, combined with crowdfunding business concept and an FCA registered fund structure are the key elements Zisk Properties utilises to enable it to become a future leader in the property market and pave a way for a better future.

A word from Javed, CEO of Zisk Properties.

“ We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure we bring the best of the property investment markets to our customers in the most efficient and user-friendly way. ”

Zisk Properties Pilot


Zisk Properties initially undertook a pilot in Pakistan (called Zisk miniProperties) testing the product with several hundred live customers while building a strong online community of more than 17,000 people. Zisk achieved exceptional returns of 26.7% over the period (significantly outperforming the local market returns of 8.1% over the same period, estimated based on Karachi data provided by Zameen.com). Zisk managed a property portfolio of £8.6m (UK equivalent) during the period. After a successful pilot, in 2018, Zisk’s focus was to launch its headquarters in the UK while expanding into UAE and developing formal operations in Pakistan. Zisk received its Financial Conduct Authority registration in late 2018. Alongside, Zisk has established strong partnerships in UAE and Pakistan.
