Hansainvest Real Assets has announced the launch of Hansa Europe Logistic Fund (HELF), an open-ended fund focusing on developments and existing properties in the logistics sector.
The fund, which is targeting a volume of up to €450 mln, will focus on assets in the core (ca. 70%) and core plus segment (ca. 30%) in established micro locations in Europe – in particular Germany, France and the Benelux countries, with a minor exposure to Finland, Spain and Poland.
'With this product we are underlining the significance attached to the logistics segment in our portfolio strategy. Not least of all due to the ongoing strong growth of e-commerce, logistics assets offer a sustainable attractive risk-return profile in Germany and also in the whole of Europe. For this reason we will continue to invest here,' said Nicholas Brinckmann, the speaker of the board of Hansainvest Real Assets.
The company has already secured a seed portfolio with an acquisition in the Netherlands. Negotiations are underway for additional properties in Germany, Poland and Spain.
