- Investments in metropolises and medium-sized towns as well as “top 7 cities“
- Investment volume of approx. 150 million Euros envisaged
Hamburg, 10 August 2018. The investment and asset manager Hamburg Trust has launched a new individual fund for a German insurance company. The “HT Office Top 30 Invest“ fund is conceived as an open-end real estate fund in accordance with the German capital investment legislation KAGB. It is designed to invest in office and commercial buildings in medium-sized towns and metropolises with a positive demographic and economic development as well as in popular locations within the “top 7 cities“. Beyond this, the diversification is to be further enhanced by acquiring existing properties already in use, new construction projects and forward transactions as well as by focusing on multi-tenant properties. The investment volume will initially amount to approx. 150 million Euros with an equity ratio of just over 50 %.
“Together with our investor, we developed a selective investment strategy which is based on our experience regarding the acquisition and management of real estate and aimed at long-term performance“, says Georg Reul, Chief Executive Officer with Hamburg Trust.
Hamburg Trust obtained the licence which authorises asset management companies to launch open-end real estate funds (“KVG-Lizenz“) at the beginning of the year. With “HT Office Top 30 Invest“, it is now launching its first open-end real estate fund. Hamburg Trust has also launched five closed-end special AIF since 2013. By diversifying the range of products for institutional investors even more, Hamburg Trust intends to significantly enhace the investment volume of currently approx. 1.1. billion Euros over the years to come.
