Our investment approach

Diversification is a key factor for growth

Allianz Real Estate is a long term investor focusing on Core to Value Add opportunities. We consider equity and debt opportunities in the same light and target properties in core markets that offer unlevered returns of 4-6% with a low to moderate risk profile.

Our holistic approach to the markets, our broad diversification strategy, our organizational structure and our ability to develop and execute complex deal structures enable us to constantly identify new opportunities and develop long term partnerships.

We are in a position to make the most of the different opportunities presented by an investment. Not just by asset class, but on a global, regional and national level and by differentiating between direct and indirect investments and real estate financing.

Olivier Téran, Chief Investment Officer

"Allianz Real Estate focuses on delivering long-term, risk-adjusted returns to the Group of Allianz investors through first-class asset and portfolio management and yield-accretive acquisitions. Our constant endeavor is to navigate through the complexities of the real estate business and secure high profitability at a reasonable risk."
