Our home market as the foundation of our success

With its headquarters in Hamburg and over 50 years of investment expertise, Union Investment's real estate segment has exceptionally strong business contacts across Germany. We invest in all of Germany’s prime locations, and in many cases have done so for decades. We also continue to make new investments, including in attractive secondary locations.

Germany has one of the most diverse real estate markets anywhere in the world. Union Investment understands this diversity and leverages it for the benefit of investors. As a conservative investor, we focus primarily on premium locations in major German cities. Attractive secondary locations where we see potential round off our investment mix.

Our investment activity in Germany centres on properties in the office, retail, hotel and residential sectors. This is complemented by investment in logistics properties.
