Investment strategy

Focus on good quality German schemes, in sustainable logistics locations where tenant demand is proven and secure leases are in place.

Responsible Property Investment (RPI) strategy

With regard to new investment opportunities for the German Logistics Fund, issues of sustainability are met with a high degree of focus. Two of the Fund’s assets in Bad Durkheim and Winsen have been awarded DGNB Gold ratings and as we seek to deploy investment capital over the coming 12-18 months, issues of solar energy, recyclable and resource-efficient building materials, as well as the adoption of energy saving construction measures will continue to play an important role in our decision making processes.
