As co-founder and CEO, Tal Orly is driven by a firm belief that Cogress is an industry game changer. He sees it as a revolutionary new means for today’s investors to gain access to the property market; a genuine alternative to the established routes.
It may be a new chapter in property investment, but right from the start, Tal wanted Cogress to be imbued with his own values of honesty and integrity. That’s why Cogress was FCA-regulated from day one. He insists on 100% transparency at every level of the business, and ranks due diligence alongside qualities such as experience and expertise in terms of its importance.
The vision to drive Cogress forward
Tal applies his diverse experience to engineer new opportunities for investors, build a progressive culture and drive business growth. At the same time as looking forward, Tal maintains a keen oversight of the day-to-day aspects of the business: meeting targets, driving the best deals and nurturing relationships. If there are problems or enquiries, he’s always there to help identify the solution. A willingness to roll the sleeves up and get stuck in is a characteristic he shares with his colleagues and has, Tal thinks, helped make Cogress what it is today.
After qualifying with a Degree in Law from the University of East London, Tal became a practising solicitor in Israel before moving back to the UK and into the property industry. He developed a deep understanding of all facets of the industry, including finance, construction, planning, marketing and design. But it is his legal background that helped when he came to specialise in the structuring of property deals.
