Tailor-made solutions

SAM structures its service offer adapting it to the specific needs of the investor/client.

SAM is a flexible and effective service provider, having a deep understanding of investment risks. 

SAM adopts an approach that combines traditional real estate with an operational activity on the management of the asset.


SAM is launching its first operational project, EduLiving, aimed at reducing the skills mismatch.

OUR MISSION is to create innovative physical spaces in which university students can simultaneously live, acquire “professionalizing” skills by attending “state of the art” education programs, and get in touch with companies through co-working spaces.

We aim to reinvent traditional student housing by creating “communities of students” sharing the same education and living experience.
