Real Estate

Real estate is not just a key sector, but an essential part of our society’s development. For us, real estate is not simply an area of expertise; it is a matter of conviction. Rather than focusing solely on return, we consider it our responsibility to support social and environmental changes through a strong operational presence on the ground.

Our approach

To enable our clients to derive maximum benefit from new developments, we have assembled all the technical, financial, legal, strategic and commercial skills we need to act in every link of the value chain. We have the operational capabilities to identify opportunities and generate value on all types of real-estate assets.

Whether on behalf of collective investment vehicles or third-party institutional and private clients, we develop and manage real-estate investments throughout Europe.
