JHSF is one of the leading real estate developers in Brazil. With significant investments in the market for high-end properties, the company specializes in the development, acquisition, and management of shopping centers, affluent residential homes, an executive airport, and upper-class hotels and restaurants.

The property developer is widely recognized for its ability to take up new business opportunities through the provision of sustainable solutions. JHSF is made up of four business specializations including an Executive Airport, Fasano Hotels, Incorporations, and Malls.

The idea is to create innovative and daring products that will attract the attention of international brands.
The retail section of JHSF has several partnerships with leading fashion brands such as Jimmy Choo, Hermes, and Pucci. It was also the first entity to launch RED Valentino stores in Brazil.
