Our aim: to double our holdings in the European core markets
Union Investment currently has real estate assets under management of around EUR 40 billion. Approximately 1 billion of this total is accounted for by around 20 logistics properties in the DACH region. We are aiming to at least double our investment in logistics in Europe over the coming years. To do that, we will look beyond the DACH region to other European core markets. We regard France and the Benelux countries as attractive options, together with Spain and the Nordic countries. Please contact us for more information.
Five good reasons for logistics acquisitions in Europe
New strategy: Logistics properties are no longer just an add-on for our funds – they represent a strategic component for growth.
Broad transaction spectrum: We acquire development projects, new builds, existing properties built in 2000 or later, and portfolios.
Different fund profiles: We handle the full range of logistics properties, from EUR 10 million to EUR 100 million per property. Outside the DACH region, we favour properties with a value of EUR 25 million and above.
Internationalisation: Properties located outside Germany account for around 60 per cent of our real estate assets. We are now seeking logistics exposure in markets where we have an existing reputation as an office Investor.
Economic stability: The European logistics markets are worth more than EUR 1 trillion a year and have proved extremely stable over many years.
