St Katherine Group (STK) is a privately held real estate company based in Port Chester, NY.

The Group was founded in the UK in 2010 by Terry Williams and Sunil Shah to invest opportunistically in real estate following the financial collapse in 2008-2009. It has since expanded its operations into a fully integrated real estate development and management company with assets in the UK and US.

STK combines a proven management team with a solid financial base. Each project is self-financed using a combination of proprietary capital, private high net worth and family office investors. The team firmly believes that stable capital is vitally important to successful real estate development.

STK operates its student portfolio under the brand Urba-Life (www.urba-life.co.uk)


Terry started his career in computing in the early 1970’s where he founded Wilco International Ltd. He successfully built Wilco into a 1200 employee global business based in London, UK.

He founded St Katherine Group in 2010 after selling Wilco to ADP Inc.
Terry initially used his own capital to invest in real estate in and around London, before combining personal funds with investor capital to build, own and operate our student portfolio in Southampton, UK.

Terry is also Chairman and majority owner of Corte Velho Ltd, a property company with over 1 million sq ft of approved development rights in Eastern Algarve, Portugal.


Sunil has worked with Terry for over 25 years.

A qualified Chartered Accountant by training, Sunil held the position of Chief Operations Officer at Wilco Ltd.

At Wilco, he helped Terry build the company into a $100 million revenue multinational business prior to co-founding St Katherine Group in 2010.

At St Katherine, Sunil has been instrumental in structuring, designing and managing each of the group’s projects in the UK.

Sunil now manages all of our student portfolio under the brand of www.urba-life.co.uk.
