Strategic corporate development
CORESTATE is a trusted partner for institutional investors/pension funds, family offices / UHNWI and private investors. As a fully integrated investment and management platform we understand the DNA of our assets and provide investment products and corresponding services that create a lasting value for our clients. Our platform encompasses investments across the risk spectrum from core to opportunistic.
OFFICE: The office sector has been the one with the highest transaction volume in the German commercial real estate market since 2013. High demand in the metropolitan areas, low vacancy rates and the pressure to invest have pushed prices to a plateau – where we expect them to remain over the mid-term. Framework conditions such as the strength of the German economy certainly remain auspicious for the sector.
RESIDENTIAL: We still see a strong development of the residential investment market in Germany, with rising transaction volumes and a strong product offering. Yet we believe that the prices we see in the market are at the upper end of the spectrum. Yield compression is limited to prime locations and cities. For our institutional investment products, we focus investments on sustainable, attractive micro-locations in strong A- and B-cities to safeguard an attractive risk-return profile (see micro-living below as extension of residential).
RETAIL: Many investors have become extremely cautious of retail as shifting consumer preferences and demands are providing for a massive change in the sector. Not all retail schemes will survive this shift but we are confident that food- and convenience-anchored retail remains attractive. Looking at the high street, some retail schemes will be replaced by gastronomy or event-driven concepts but the underlying mixed-use asset is still a good investment.
OTHER: Micro-living has become an own and growing asset class. A substantial supply-demand imbalance in single-person housing across Europe offers significant development and investment potential over the coming years. The demand is driven by several mega-trends, including urbanisation. We are seeing population increases in cities with strong economies that offer good job prospects and excellent universities. These locations are attracting workers willing to travel to find employment as well as the student population – and both are looking for micro-apartments.
Investment principles & strategy
As an investment manufactory, we demonstrate a high degree of entrepre- neurial creativity and flexibility, which is reflected in the development of our investment products. These are always aligned with current market phases and macro-economic trends. While CORESTATE focused primarily on residential real estate in the early years, our investment focus subsequently shifted to include micro-apartments for singles, commuters and students, and ultimately retail properties. Today the group also focuses on hotels, office buildings and urban districts. We will continue to readjust our focus whenever we identify economic potential in new segments.
