Laboratory real estate

List of 3 large life science real estate investors in Europe

The “life science” asset class, which includes laboratory and research buildings, is becoming increasingly popular. More and more investors are including laboratory real estate in their investment profiles. Below we present three leading European investors in life science properties.

1. Life Science REIT (UK)

The London-based Life Science REIT focuses on life science buildings in the UK. The investment vehicle comprises 6 buildings with a valuation of over GBP380M. Portfolio properties are located in Cambridge, Oxford and London. Examples of tenants include the Novartis subsidiary Gyroscope and Nanna Therapeutics.

Update 2024: Life Science REIT has recently finalized the sale of the Lumen House (Oxford) asset to Harwell Science and Innovation Campus for £7.65 million. The sale price represents a net initial yield of 5.6%.

2. BEOS AG (Germany)

Berlin-based BEOS AG, a subsidiary of Swiss Life Asset Managers, has proven with a recent investment that it is one of the top investors in life science real estate in Europe. A property in Berlin was acquired from SCIENION GmbH for €21M in a sale-and-lease-back transaction. The property comprises office, laboratory and warehouse space. BEOS also owns other life science properties in the Adlershof Technology Park.

3. Physicus Tech (Netherlands)

Physicus is an Amsterdam-based investment manager specializing in life science real estate. The vehicle was created as a joint venture between TPG Real Estate and Base Investments. Portfolio properties are located in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. An exemplary portfolio property is the “Beagle” property in Leiden, which offers combined laboratory and office space.

LabOffices Europe

Focus on investors for laboratory properties and research buildings

The coronavirus pandemic has shown that healthcare is a growing economic factor. At the same time, demographic change, which is accompanied by an ageing population, is driving innovation in this sector as a whole. There is also a worldwide increase in lifestyle diseases. There are therefore positive long-term earnings prospects for life science companies as and when healthcare expenditure increases. The overall trend in the market is bound to have an impact on real estate marketing. In addition, the yields in the asset class appear promising – according to Cushman & Wakefield, there is a net prime yield of 4 to 4.5 percent for so-called lab offices in Germany, based on the top cities of Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich. This “German” development could also increasingly take shape in Europe with countless MedTech cities and specialized biopharma companies.
