Five Quarters Real Estate receives AIFM approval from BaFin.
Hamburg, 4. December 2019 – Five Quarters Real Estate AG has laid the foundation for its future business: Just five months after entering the market, the Hamburg-based investment house receives authorisation from the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). From now on, it may act as an AIF capital management company. This regulatory security is the basis for collaborating with its institutional clients.
“The next step is to obtain sales approvals for our products,” explains Peret Bergmann. Various funds from the food retail, healthcare infrastructure, European hotels and European residential sectors are currently being planned.
“The approval by the BaFin confirms the high level at which we work,” says a pleased Erik Beets, who founded the company together with Georg zu Stolberg and Peret Bergmann. “We offer the agility of a start-up with the regulatory security of a large financial institution,” says zu Stolberg, summing up the founding concept.
Five Quarters provides its clients throughout Europe with access to off-market transactions. The focus is on properties with a high usage value and stable long-term cash flow. But also on opportunities. Buildings with multiple use options are particularly interesting for Five Quarters: from living and working to shopping and travel.
