Transparent as glass, solid as concrete – and as advanced as a Smart Home. Five Quarters Real Estate is a new breed of real estate investment company for institutional clients. Our innovative, modern style of collaboration takes agility and partnership to the next level.
We offer banks, pension funds, pension schemes, insurance companies or family offices Europe-wide access to the real estate investments we pursue with passion. As an independent company, we’re free to focus on what matters most: helping our clients achieve their goals.
We look forward to working with you soon.
Our investment philosophy in a nutshell: “When tenants enjoy something, investors benefit too.” In other words, buildings with a high utility value for private and commercial tenants generate stable, sustainable cashflows because they never stand empty. So when we appraise a new building, the first thing we ask is: “Is it useful?”. If the answer is yes, it’s the right building for our investors.
To find sustainable, storm-resistant investment opportunities in good locations, we also consider mixed use properties ranging from living and working to shopping and travel. Not prestigious trophies, but sensible investments supported by more than one pillar. The kind our investors prefer.
Our clients are, and always have been, banks, savings banks, insurance companies, professional pension funds and pension schemes.
After many years of working with institutional clients, we understand how they view the real estate investment business from both ends –front and back. We know their needs and requirements, and we know their inconveniences. At Five Quarters Real Estate, we’re here to master those inconveniences. With expert knowledge, excellent contacts, and exceptional IT power.
Our clients are subject to strict regulation and supervision. Accordingly, they expect high standards from their service providers. To leave no doubt about the excellence of our work, we have been approved as an external capital management company by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) in accordance with §§ 20, 22 KAGB. We have adapted our organisation to the strict regulatory requirements and are subject to the supervision of BaFin.
