Iberian logistics pioneer continues to expand its footprint in Europe

Valfondo, the leading logistics real estate developer and manager in the Iberian Peninsula, is set to conquer Europe.

The story of Valfondo Investment  Management is one of success and  business growth based on a commitment to excellence and innovation. These two attributes define the independent manager that has been a pioneer in the logistics  development sector in Iberia, where it is currently delivering some of the largest logistics developments. 

This vision has led the company to be recognised as one of the key players in the Iberian  Peninsula’s logistics sector, a market with some of the most important commercial hubs in Europe which is attracting an increasing number of companies, and one in  which Valfondo manages assets worth more than €1.25 bn. 

To get this far, the company has remained  faithful to one of the keys to its success: a  clear vision and a determined commitment  to the long term. This motto has allowed Valfondo  to grow from a commercial warehouse company that began operating in Spain in 2002 to what it is today: one of the major players in the sector, with an ability to adapt to the needs of the market and its customers. 

In its desire to meet the changing demands  of logistics operators and customers, Valfondo has been able to offer innovative solutions  that cover the entire logistics value chain. The company specialises in land sourcing, urban planning management, development, property and asset management, and financial and investor management. In addition, a fundamental aspect of Valfondo’s DNA is its commitment to sustainability. 

Over the years, the company has  demonstrated significant leadership in ESG considerations and has become a pan-European benchmark recognised by independent  international organisations such as GRESB  and the US Green Building Council. 

Valfondo is an independent asset manager,  but its growth story cannot be understood without reference to Montepino, a vehicle created and managed by the company that  has become the leading SOCIMI (REIT) specialising in the logistics real estate sector  in the Iberian Peninsula.

Valfondo currently manages the vehicle in partnership with Bankinter, one of Spain’s largest banks.  The success of Montepino, which is listed on Euronext Access Paris, demonstrates Valfondo’s  ability to form strategic partnerships with large institutional investors.  Examples of Valfondo’s capabilities and approach  to ESG include its project in Illescas  (Spain), a modern and sustainable logistics  platform with a gross leasable area (GLA) of  421,859 sqm built to BREEAM Urbanism, the most prestigious certification for sustainable construction, as well as its development  in Castanheira do Ribatejo, near Lisbon – a  turnkey project for Leroy Merlin with a GLA  of 108,500 sqm, the largest logistics project to date in Portugal, developed in a prime location and in accordance with the most demanding  sustainability standards, with the aim of achieving the first LEED Premium certification for a logistics asset in the country. 

The company, a key player in the development of built-to-suit (BTS) projects, is exploring opportunities in various European markets outside of Iberia and is about to realise its entry into France with an emblematic large-scale development project. 

Valfondo continues to look ahead and is ready to respond to the growing demand from logistics occupiers seeking to modernise and expand their supply chains through  BTS developments.  The company’s capabilities, coupled with its sustainability credentials, will be key to its international expansion that aims to make Valfondo a leader in the pan-European  logistics market.
