Ardian Real Estate closed its debut European Fund more than €700m in early 2018, with strong support from institutions, particularly on the Continent, and has deployed almost 40% to date in leading French, German and Italian cities. The fund targets an overall split of approximately 40% of assets each in France and Germany, and 20% in Italy.
The three locally-based teams in Paris, Frankfurt and Milan, managed respectively by Stéphanie Bensimon, Bernd Haggenmüller and Rodolfo Petrosino, have pioneered a strategy which focuses on the Core-Plus, Value-added segment, identifying well-located office buildings in key cities, where Ardian’s “Re-Work” formula centers around creating significant additional value through focused redevelopment and active management.
