A distinctive, targeted investment strategy
We follow an innovative Core-Plus, Value-Add strategy, targeting well-located office buildings in key cities including Paris, Milan, Rome, Munich and Berlin. Core-Plus deals involve relatively minor upgrades to improve the leasing potential of the property. Value-Add transactions require extensive refurbishment to create international-quality offices in sought-after districts.
Local knowledge and active management
Our teams based in Paris, Frankfurt and Milan have deep experience and wide contacts in their home markets, enabling them to identify the districts and properties best suited to our Core-Plus, Value-Add strategy. After completion, they manage each asset closely, working with tenants and identifying the investment priorities to achieve our target rental yields and returns.
Extending Ardian’s ESG leadership into Real Estate
We apply a proprietary, industry-leading ESG benchmarking framework, Ardian Real Sustain, from the start of due diligence through to exit. Our priorities include monitoring and improving energy efficiency and environmental impacts, increasing tenant satisfaction and achieving top BREEAM or LEED sustainability certifications for every asset.
