It began with a simple idea.

In 2006, we started the journey to simplify the complex world of finance. Our founders (and namesakes) Shafin Kanji and Aleem Virani began KV Capital on the premise that simpler means better. Sounds good, right?

Since then, both our team and our service offerings have grown. But we have always remained focused on making transactions easy for our clients—without cutting corners.

We're a team of equity and real estate experts who broker deals and capital to help people who need capital find people with capital, building success on both sides.

Since 2006, we have committed ourselves to the relentless pursuit of getting deals done, in the right amount of time. How? By committing ourselves to doing deals in the right way. The right way for us means efficiency, integrity and rigour are a part of everything we do. We apply our expertise to make the complex simple. We use our industry experience and relationships to bring all the pieces together. All of this means our deals have the best chances of success and in the right amount of time.  

KV Capital has built a reputation as the team who gets it done through careful and simple transactions. And by getting it done, we are creating a world where ambition meets capital, so projects move forward and take human progress with them.

Simple is good

Why is simplicity so important to us? We believe in building trust and peace-of-mind, while adding value to our clients’ experience. And the best way to do that is by saying who we are and what we offer in the clearest terms possible.

What we believe in

We couldn’t have made it this far without staying true to the core values that reflect our beliefs and guide our culture, decision-making, and unwavering commitment to clients and investors.


Doing it right and doing it with honesty—our employees, clients, and investors deserve it.


Continually improving ourselves, our business practice, and the client experience has always been top of our to-do list.


It bears repeating: simplifying complex ideas and processes is at the heart of what we do. Our clients and investors thank us for it.


We couldn’t do it alone—and we wouldn’t want to. Working internally with our team and externally with clients and investors is the key to success.
