Leveraging the potential of digital technologies

Digital technologies offer exciting potential for developing more efficient processes and new business models. Union Investment is working at multiple levels along the entire value chain to seize the opportunities around digital technologies. Partnerships with innovative startups play a central role in this strategy.

Engaging proactively with the digital world

A partnership approach is our strength
The real estate value chain offers a wide range of digitisation opportunities. They include smart analysis of large data sets to support fund management and digital solutions that facilitate the management of development projects or improve the way existing properties are managed, thereby benefiting tenants. We work proactively with various partners to harness this potential.

Working with innovative startups

The most enduring solutions are created by combining the creativity and courage of young entrepreneurs with the capital, experience and accumulated data of established market players. Accordingly, Union Investment is interested in working with innovative startups from the real estate sector.

Collaboration with proptech companies can take many different forms, from informally sharing the results of successful joint projects to strategic investment. Our experts cultivate relationships with digitisation specialists via the real estate industry's key platforms, at small dedicated events and in personal face-to-face visits.

PropTech Award 2018

Shaping digital transformation

Digitisation means change. The courage to challenge established business processes and the curiosity to find more efficient solutions are the most important prerequisites for shaping this change. The best way to achieve transformation is to work shoulder to shoulder with all staff members, supported by a strong digitisation team in the real estate Segment.
