Allianz Real Estate: successful worldwide in the most important real estate markets of the future.

Allianz Real Estate is one of the world's leading property investment and asset managers. Under the strategic management of the holding in Munich and Paris, country branches are locally responsible for the operative management in their market regions. Through this, Allianz Real Estate is able to secure its long term local presence in the key markets of the future. The goal hereby is the development and management of a globally diversified and centrally managed real estate portfolio on behalf of the Allianz investors.


The 450 real estate specialists of Allianz Real Estate follow an active Buy-Manage-Sell strategy as part of their professional portfolio management. The close proximity of the country branches to the most important markets and customers enables them to acquire, at short notice, the suitable real estate for the portfolio, professionally manage this locally, and then sell at the best time.

The investment and asset management companies in Germany and France and the office in Singapore show how successful local operative implementation can be. Allianz Real Estate Germany is responsible for the markets in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia whilst Allianz Real Estate France is responsible for real estate business in France and the Benelux countries. The successive development of further operative country branches will be an important task for Allianz Real Estate in the coming years.

Broad diversification

Allianz Real Estate is successful through the diversification of its portfolio. It distributes direct and indirect investments worldwide and focuses on a range of utilisation types: besides office real estate, retail real estate will also become more important in the future; residential real estate also belongs to the portfolio. With special utilisation types, for example logistics real estate, Allianz Real Estate prefers indirect investments.

Our sales strategy

Our sales strategy

Our sales strategy: Allianz Real Estate to concentrate on large, high-yield properties in major European cities.

Under its buy-manage-sell strategy, Allianz Real Estate regularly sells real estate – chiefly high-yield office, retail and residential properties at top locations in Europe.

In future, its portfolio will contain fewer small items while its previous concentration on Germany is to be reduced in favor of European investments. In addition, Allianz Real Estate has been systematically restructuring its property portfolio since 2009 by selling off small, attractive real estate in peripheral locations and small towns and purchasing larger, prime properties with stable rental income, mainly in top European cities.

By 2013 it plans to have divested itself of property with a total value of about 1 billion euros and concluded the restructuring of its portfolio.
