List of 3 Private Equity Real Estate Investors in Europe

European private equity investors in the real estate business are characterized by their broad investment profile and rather high risk profile. In the following we introduce three relevant investors from our list.

1. EQT

The Swedish private equity investor EQT invests through its EQT Exeter division. The focus is on value-add investments. Examples include the “Concept” project in France and the acquisition of Stendörren, which invests in urban logistics and light industrial properties in the Stockholm area.

2. AURELIUS Real Estate Opportunities

The real estate arm of the Munich-based private equity investor AURELIUS Real Estate Opportunities invests in residential, light industrial and corporate real estate. In PE style, the focus is on special situations. A “manage-to-core” approach is used to achieve improvement potential. Properties are purchased in European markets from a purchase price of EUR 3 million. 

3. Heitman

The US private equity investor Heitman LLC manages over USD 46 billion. In the real estate sector, investments are made in three areas: Private Equity (privately held real estate), Debt (loans) and Public Equity (shares in listed companies).

What distinguishes these investors?

In general, “private equity” refers to privately held investment vehicles that are not listed on a stock exchange. Private equity funds have established themselves specifically in the corporate investment world. In recent years, these private equity funds have also become increasingly active in the real estate markets with their own property investment teams. These investors differ from ordinary investors in so far that riskier deals are made, they often have a broader investment spectrum and distressed assets are also relevant.
