Bernard Corcos is the founder, Chairman & CEO of Finest International, parent company to Finest Residences.
Bernard began his entrepreneurial career at the age of 15, alongside his studies. During later years, after an academic education as an international business lawyer, he noticed that real estate operators and individuals had difficulties to reach efficiently and on a large scale qualified clients for international real estate transactions and to execute such transactions in an optimal manner.
Considering their needs, he created Finest International, a real estate consulting and brokerage network of specialized attorneys and financiers able to handle complex international transactions. Today, Finest International network offers the utmost levels of legal and financial expertise, absolute secrecy and a strong support in legally and fiscally heterogeneous and sometimes politically uncertain environments.
To address this demand more thoroughly, Bernard then created Finest Residences. Initially based on Finest International’s members, the network is opening up to property-related high level professionals such as real estate developers, banks, financial institutions, real estate funds and mortgage brokers, insurance companies and brokers, wealth management firms, family offices, luxury real estate brokerage, relocation agencies, architects and decorators, and housing-related professionals. Leveraging Internet technologies, Finest Residences is now turning into a global PropTech network company.
Bernard holds several post-graduate degrees in International Business Law, International e-Commerce Law, International Tax Law, International Business Management, International Corporate Finance and International Relations (UNSA, IDPD, CIFE). He is also a former Auditor at Mines ParisTech (ENSMP) and the french Institut des Hautes Etudes de la Défense Nationale (IHEDN).
An avid reader, Bernard has also a passion for writing, yachting, and the sea.
