Our business model is based on the strong foundation of over 50 years of real estate expertise. We provide our property investors with a comprehensive investment platform. We currently have assets under management totalling around EUR 41.4 billion in our open-ended retail real estate funds, specialized funds and service and pooling mandates and are Germany's largest provider for open-ended real estate funds for private investors. We invest in the office, retail, hotel, logistics and residential sectors and hold around 370 commercial properties across 23 countries in our actively managed portfolio.
Operating as a real estate investor and active asset manager in a highly competitive environment, our transaction expertise allows us to secure properties that offer steady, sustainable income. Whether acquiring development projects, negotiating high-value transactions or entering into complex international joint venture deals, all our investments are safeguarded by active risk management. An increased international focus creates an additional basis for high fund returns. The international expansion of our business is of major strategic importance to us. Our offices in Hamburg, Vienna, Paris, Madrid, New York and Singapore allow us to combine an international investor’s perspective with in-depth market knowledge of the individual regions. Some 60 per cent of our real estate assets are located outside Germany.
