The investment and asset managers Hamburg Trust and GalCap Europe from Hamburg and Vienna have agreed on a long-term, exclusive cooperation for the acquisition and management of residential real estate in Austria. GalCap Europe takes over responsibilities in the fields of property sourcing, transaction management and asset management in Austria for the residential real estate funds of Hamburg Trust. The target is an investment volume in the multiple hundreds of millions range, with a focus on Vienna, supplemented by attractive provincial capitals such as Graz and Linz. Initial purchases are nearing completion. Investment properties include both existing real estate and project developments (forward deals) with lot sizes of EUR 10 mln or more.
Dr. Georg Reul, Chief Executive Officer of Hamburg Trust: “Through our partnership with GalCap, we can now offer our institutional investors not only residential real estate in Germany, but also Austria as a comparably stable market in the domicilium INVEST series.”
According to Dr. Manfred Wiltschnigg, Managing Partner of GalCap Europe, sees great potential in this cooperation: “GalCap is firmly rooted in Austria. Our local presence, our market know-how and, not least, our close-knit network enable us to continuously generate good investment opportunities. Together with Hamburg Trust, we will use them for institutional investors. ”
