Redevco on the path to diversify and grow
March 12, 2020
Amsterdam, March 12, 2020 – Redevco, one of the largest privately-owned real estate investment managers in Europe, aims to grow its mandates and portfolio to €10 billion by 2025 from €7.5 billion currently, by launching a drive into new real estate sectors beyond retail. Third-party investors now comprise 40% of Redevco’s capital base at €2.8 billion, compared with zero six years ago. The company is extending the opening of its investment platform to like-minded investors and will consider a variety of investment vehicles to broaden its investor base, with an initial focus on joint ventures.
Andrew Vaughan, Redevco CEO, said: “Urban areas are changing rapidly and, in parallel, also the demands on the use of real estate space. Redevco’s research-led insights into the dynamic forces that are driving the evolution of city landscapes have always steered our investment strategies and allowed us to keep on top of these fast-moving market trends.” Vaughan continues: “So, we see a great opportunity to leverage our pan-European investment platform and local specialist teams across 13 national markets to substantially grow the portfolio over the next five years. By partnering with a broader spectrum of like-minded investors and diversifying into new property sectors, such as offices and last-mile logistics, we will further build on the success we’ve already achieved in residential markets in the past 18 months. Future investments will largely be concentrated in mixed-use urban locations, as the blurring of boundaries between real estate asset classes accelerates.”
