As of today, Five Quarters Real Estate offers new-style real estate investments for institutional investors.
Hamburg, 23 June 2019 – The real estate business has a new address: Peret Bergmann, Georg zu Stolberg and Erik Beets have founded a real estate investment company for institutional investors. The name: Five Quarters Real Estate | 5QRE. The approach: partnership through digital technology.
Beets, zu Stolberg and Bergmann are well known in the real estate business, having held top management positions for many years at various real estate investment companies. The other names in the Five Quarters Real Estate team are likewise no strangers: the limited company’s strategic partner is a Hamburg company with a strong reputation in the real estate sector. The Supervisory Board also boasts three big hitters from the industry: Claudia Meier, Peter Forster and Arwed Fischer.
Today marks the first day in the market for Five Quarters Real Estate. But does the European market really need another real estate investment company? Co-founder Bergmann says yes: “But only if you break new ground. Based on our mutual experience, we know the needs and requirements of institutional investors, but also their challenges. We’re here to master those challenges.“ The Five Quarters Real Estate approach is based on the comprehensive use of digital analysis, forecast and reporting tools that it also shares with its clients. “As a result, our investors can review their portfolio’s current development at any time, and can discuss upcoming decisions with us based on the same information“, explains Erik Beets. “That’s what we mean by true partnership.“
Another distinctive feature is the fact that the Five Quarters Real Estate AG has applied to the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) for a permit as an external AIF management company, in accordance with sections 20, 22 KAGB (German Capital Investment Code). “This enables us to offer our institutional investors the highest level of regulatory security“, notes Georg zu Stolberg.
The focus of Five Quarters Real Estate rests on private and commercial off-market projects with high utility values and sustainable, stable cash flows. But the startup is also interested in opportunities, particularly buildings with multi-level usage potential, from living and working to shopping and travel.
Bergmann, zu Stolberg and Beets have distilled the essence of this unusual business model into an unusual name: Five Quarters Real Estate. They’re happy to divulge the story behind the name – but only in a personal dialogue.
