Our expert teams focus on converting valuable core/landmark properties into suitable investment structures. In doing this, we work closely together with our clients, ensuring optimal arrangements.
Outstanding cases in point for attractive Club Deals are the Japan Center and the ibc-Campus in Frankfurt am Main, and the Sapporobogen in Munich.
With Pool Funds, we offer our clients specialized fund products focussing on specific regions or asset classes. The emphasis here is clearly based on high-yield and stable Core/Core Plus.
Since 2010, we have successfully established several series of funds (e.g. Office Balance) which promise continuously high-yield disbursements.
Separate Accounts means: investment concepts individually tailored to the needs of our clients, comprising single- or multi-asset funds.
A big advantage for our clients: They can stay in direct contact with our teams of experts, thus enjoying a high degree of transparency and reliability with regard to the active management of their real estate investments.
