We specialise in the long-term investment in commercial and residential property in Germany. With a rigorous analytical approach we identify and operate in market segments and geographies that are supported by strong long-term economic fundamentals. In these markets we identify real estate opportunities that offer upside through active asset management. Our strong relationships with financial institutions enable us to arrange debt financing that meets the risk profile of our investment partners. We often take a portfolio approach to investing and mix lower return but stabilised assets with higher risk value-add assets. Together these investment principles are our formula for delivering market leading financial returns to our investment partners over the long-term .
Hannover Steel is currently the advisor and co-investor in several private investment entities. These entities all maintain a purchase and hold strategy, with a view to benefiting from the ongoing strength of German commercial real estate fundamentals.
We assess risk diligently and develop active management plans for each asset purchased. We acquire assets where we are confident that we can achieve leasing and occupancy targets based upon proven market rents. Where required we apply appropriate refurbishment and tenant improvement capital. This way we are confident of achieving stable portfolio WAULTS over the long-term.
