Investment focus: Off-market transactions in the segments of innovative, residential and commercial real estate in the DACH region
The changes brought about by COVID-19 will enable attractive transactions in the real estate sector, which require active management, short decision-making processes and fast action. Thomas Landschreiber, founder and CEO of 777 Capital Partners, sees a variety of challenges for market participants that open up new investment opportunities. “The corona crisis will put many market participants under severe pressure in the next one to two years. In addition, under the new macroeconomic situation and the Basel III/IV reforms, banks will be much stricter in granting new financing. We expect a great deal of restructuring on the equity and debt side,” says Mr. Landschreiber, describing current market developments, adding: “We already experienced this in 2009 and it is only a matter of time before the new circumstances lead to a number of interesting investment opportunities.
Ralph Winter, founder and Chairman of the Investment Committee of 777 Capital Partners, believes that the investment boutique is well positioned in this context: “Especially in challenging times, it is important to have access to the right market participants and the appropriate capital. We are able to take risks with our own capital – something like this has become very rare today. Our extensive network of investors and sellers know that we can execute challenging transactions. I am very pleased that with such a strong team we are able to focus on the essential, namely on commercially sustainable and successful investments for our investment partners. The operational influence in the residential real estate market is currently growing exponentially, a development that is already more noticeable in the USA. Innovative Living assets with community approaches will be highly successful in the coming decades. This opens up a broad spectrum of investment opportunities, ranging from debt capital to equity and PropTech private equity”.
