HANSAINVEST Real Assets increases assets under management to nearly 6.5 billion euros

  • Project volume grows by 50% to more than 950 million euros with developments in Hamburg and Munich, among others
  • Strategic expansion of logistics real estate portfolio moving ahead: some 480 million euros in assets under management already
  • Strong leasing performance despite the coronavirus: more than 250,000 m² leased, following on from 150,000 m² in 2019

HANSAINVEST Real Assets GmbH has started 2021 with a new record for assets under management. As a consequence of the sustainable growth path in recent years, the assets under management as of the end of 2020 were 6.5 billion euros, following on from 5.9 billion euros in the previous year. The infrastructure segment accounted for nearly 1.1 billion euros, while the real estate segment saw strong year-on-year growth of more than 600 million euros to 5.4 billion euros.
 

It was also possible to expand the project development volume, which now totals more than 950 million euros. This figure encompasses challenging, major new construction projects in Hamburg's city centre and its "City North" district, with the company also represented in Munich city centre with the premium office project Lumen.
 

The logistics real estate segment, in which HANSAINVEST Real Assets has already been active since 2006 and which has increasingly been at the heart of the growth strategy since 2018 - two years before the coronavirus crisis-driven growth therefore - was able to post a further major expansion in 2020. In the meantime, the logistics segment comprises some 480 million euros in assets under management, following on from nearly 300 million euros at the end of 2019.
 

"We are proud that we have been able to continue on our growth path in 2020, which was an exceptional year for everybody. In this respect, the strategic orientation of our real estate portfolio is being consistently continued - and the particular focus has not just been on the residential and logistics asset classes since the coronavirus crisis began. Alongside the German top 7 cities, selected international markets such as the east coast of the USA, Benelux, Helsinki and others are of interest for us for additional acquisitions," explains Nicholas Brinckmann, the chairman of the management of HANSAINVEST Real Assets.
 

Strong leasing performance despite the coronavirus: more than 250,000 m² leased, following on from 150,000 m² 2019
 

The leasing performance increased in 2020 to a total of 251,200 square metres in new leases and extensions, following on from 150,800 square metres in 2019. As a result, the leasing ratio has also remained stable across the entire real estate portfolio at nearly 95%.
 

"This tremendously strong leasing result also speaks volumes for the enormous competence and commitment of our asset management team. We have demonstrated our leasing competence in an impressive manner under in part incredibly difficult conditions, for which I would like to thank the entire team," comments Martina Averbeck, the managing director of HANSAINVEST Real Assets.

HANSAINVEST Real Assets developing an office ensemble with nearly 13,000 m² on the edge of Munich’s historic centre through to 2023

  • The prestigious LUMEN Munich linking Munich’s historic centre with Sonnenstrasse
  • Design by Allmann Sattler Wappner Architekten
  • DGNB Platinum certification planned

HANSAINVEST Real Assets GmbH is pushing ahead with the strategic expansion of its own project development business. With the realisation of the new construction LUMEN Munich it is intended to create some 12,600 square metres of commercial space at Sonnenstrasse 23 on the very edge of Munich’s historic city centre by the end of 2023. The winning design for the project originates from the renowned architecture firm Allmann Sattler Wappner Architekten and foresees DGNB Platinum certification of the new construction.
 

“Both the architecture as well as the location are extremely appealing. Thanks to its greened, generously-proportioned inner courtyard, LUMEN Munich will offer a unique quality in terms of light and space throughout the entire building complex. As dictated by the needs of the modern working world, our tenants can expect to find flexible floor layouts tailored to meet their individual requirements and which will suit both classical and innovative office concepts,” says Nicholas Brinckmann, the speaker of the Management Board of HANSAINVEST Real Assets.
 

The floor layout and usage concepts have consciously been designed to be flexible, comprising widely differing cubicle, hybrid and open plan office space structures, as well as multifunctional and communicative areas, such as work and chill-out spaces, lounges and conference zones. In line with the attractive and high-frequency micro location the ground floor is to fulfil a local amenities function, while the six prestigious upper floors are intended for office tenants. It is planned that the basement will accommodate 67 car parking spaces and 90 bicycle stands.
 

LUMEN Munich is located halfway between the Sendlinger Tor node to the south and Karlsplatz / Stachus to the north. The office ensemble will form a new link between Munich’s historic centre and the main thoroughfare Sonnenstrasse. With the planned reconstruction of Munich central station – which can be reached in eight minutes on foot and in four minutes by public transport – the value of an already attractive location will be further enhanced. There are numerous shopping opportunities as well as gastronomic and cultural offerings of every kind in the immediate vicinity.
