Different types of real estate investment: core objects, value add, project development
European single family offices are investing in various types of real estate. Some of them are focusing on existing core objects in large cities like Berlin, Paris, London or Madrid. For example, the Swiss real estate firm Reba has a mandate to acquire residential real estate in Berlin for approximately €100M. Other family offices are especially seeking value add objects to increase their return. Some single family offices also have extensive in-house experience and develop own real estate projects. We will introduce you to some exemplary single family office from the list.
