Investment Criteria

Investment Criteria

Given the various clients we serve, the investment criteria depend on their respective strategies and vary from case to case.

We pursue core strategies as well as core plus / value-add approaches (manage to core plus) for our clients. Standing properties as well as investments in project developments on the basis of turnkey arrangements are considered as target allocation.

The following criteria describe what we would typically consider an investment opportunity worth reviewing.
