Real Estate

The saying “safe as bricks” is often used to describe real estate investments - Reason is that it is a natural hedge against inflation, and in times where governments around the world are injecting money into the economy real estate becomes a key part of a portfolio.

About Us

Carte Blanche was founded by Thomas Cheung after looking for more from financial planning services offered by banks, insurance companies and independent financial advisories in Hong Kong.

After the financial crisis legislation has been tightened to the point where most people selling financial products cannot provide advice to manage them leaving clients stranded with a long-term product with no follow up.

With a passion for investment and experience in global real estate, in New York, China and Hong Kong as well as first hand experinece in the ups and downs of stocks, derivatives and alternative investments including wine and taxis Carte Blanche was formed to serve those looking at a long term horizon.

The word Carte Blanche entered the English language as a French loan word in the mid-17th century. A highly fashionable game of the time was piquet, in which a carte blanche was a hand having no face cards. By the 18th century, the meaning had expanded to include blank pieces of paper upon which someone signed his name, trusting a second party to come up with the stipulations of a deal. This idea of signing a yet-unwritten contract and handing over authority to the other party led us to the sense most familiar to speakers of modern-day English. Nowadays, if someone has been given carte blanche, it means that they are free to do or say whatever they please.

Carte Blanche was founded to help you achieve the freedom to live the lifestyle you choose. Our dreams are often limited by our finances. Carte Blanche is here to help you achieve freedom in this respect.
