              • Even in the world’s most crowded cities, people need a respite. It may seem counterintuitive but Sekhon Family Office Wellness Fund is about to place a wellness hospitality property smack in the middle of most metropolitan areas.
              • Our fund shall invest with several of the world’s top wellness brands who are moving beyond their roots in idyllic locations to set up shop in big cities.
              • These new wellness ventures in urban locations are a result of the overwhelming global interest in wellness and the increasing evidence that being healthy is not a preserve for the wealthy.”
              • These properties will offer creative wellness programming, including options for social wellness. Its wellness on steroids (to mix metaphors).
              • We shall continue to open Wellness retreats where the people (and affluence) are: cities. Consider: the urban population has grown from 751 million in 1950 to 4.9 billion in 2021—and the UN forecasts that it will rise by another 2.5 billion in 2050!
              • More travelers will choose serene wellness destinations when they visit cities, and more people nearby will stay too: Not everyone can get to that remote island resort.
              • Many of our urban wellness resorts will be part hotel, part membership club, and part wellness residences, creating a whole new kind of wellness community and a smart business model that means extraordinary properties that get funded easier.
              • We look for big growth where urbanism is booming: for instance, Asia and North America.
