A sought-after transaction partner

Every year, Union Investment buys and sells office properties worth billions of euros in total. When acquiring properties, we focus primarily on the quality of a property and its ability to generate strong long-term rental income. Our dependability and transaction reliability mean that deals often lead to long-term partnerships.

Clear criteria for acquisitions and sales

A good office property stands out due to its location and high level of construction quality. We mainly look for properties let on a long-term basis with high cash flow and positive value appreciation. Properties in secondary locations or with short- and medium-term leases are also considered if they meet our investment criteria. Development projects are also part of our investment remit. We use strategic disposals to reduce the age of our portfolio or divest ourselves of properties that no longer fit our investment strategy.

Investment criteria office

  • Core, core plus and value-add investments
  • Property value EUR 10 million or above
  • Acquisition structure: asset deals and share deals
  • Financing: 100 per cent self-funded
  • Only properties suitable for third-party use
  • Acquisition of development projects by way of forward funding, including projects with a low pre-letting level

Reliability is our strength

Our transaction partners associate the name Union Investment with absolute professionalism and reliability. All acquisitions and disposals follow a clear and efficient process. That also applies to our latest successful acquisitions.
