Grupo aFinance has opened in Palma. The company has long worked with clients and properties in Mallorca, but it has now taken a step forward in having a branch in Mallorca. The group has undertaken various operations on the islands, but the opening of the office in Mallorca represents a major advance. aFinance has some 500 employees and is forecasting an increase in its market share this year in the whole of the country. In 2021, the volume of transactions was to a value of close to 800 million euros. Grupo aFinance offers a differentiated service through expert advisors who are available to clients at all times.

The company, headed by Armando Lasauca Inglés, has four divisions that specialise in different services in the property and finance world. Armando Lasauca Soldevila, son of the group’s president, directs aProperties; Enric Vial is in charge of aFinance; Miquel Roig is responsible for aRetail; and Lluís Vial heads aCapital.

The group is distinguished from the competition by being a family business, by the fact that all its members are executives and by the excellent treatment of employees and clients. In this regard, training is a fundamental for the company, which stamps its own DNA on employees.

aProperties and aFinance are the two divisions with their own personnel in Palma. Forecasts indicate that the real-estate wing will have close to one hundred employees, while aFinance is looking at a team of some forty advisors. As with all the group’s other offices - in Barcelona, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Madrid and Valencia - there are also legal, human resources and marketing departments.
aFinance recognises that the property market is in good shape at present but flatly rejects the idea that there is a bubble.
