Our customers and partners

Our clients include, in particular, banks, insurance companies, national and international investors, institutional investors, family offices and real estate funds. Our client base is made up of both opportunistic investors with a short-term focus and long-term portfolio holders. Correspondingly, we manage all types of assets and a wide variety of investment strategies, from core and core+ to value-add and opportunistic.
In addition to prominent single assets, we also manage large-volume heterogeneous portfolios. Our many years of experience in the management of all kinds of commercial properties have resulted in tried-and-tested workflows and working principles which provide the basis for our teams' activities and the working relationships with our clients.
Current projects
Providing ideas in dynamic times
"The industry is facing particular challenges as a result of numerous crises of global proportions, uncertainty, worries about the future and tendencies toward social division. Parallel to this, although the growth of online retail has slowed, appropriate answers and offerings in response to it have yet to be fully formulated. Who is my target customer group today and tomorrow? How can I curate a suitable but also inspiring offering that is not boring and how can I engage in a communicative dialogue with my customers? If you are looking for answers to these questions for your investments, we can provide individual, tailor-made, reliable answers. We analyse, advise and deliver and implement solutions."
