Aukera originated EUR 375 million real Estate loans in the first half of 2022

Aukera successfully continued its investment activity in the first half of 2022, originating EUR 375 million in loans. The capital commitments of Aukera funds were increased to around EUR 1.1 billion.

At the end of June, for example, the acquisition of a retail portfolio by a Berlin-based real estate group was accompanied by a loan in the amount of EUR 135 million. The so-called “Hercules Portfolio” comprises properties in established inner-city locations, including in Berlin, Dresden and Rostock, and was able to convince with a current occupancy rate of around 90 percent. The tenants mainly include grocery retailers, drugstore chains and other shops for daily needs.

“In the current market environment, reliability and a high probability of closing are almost exclusively decisive for all parties involved in a financing transaction”, says Dr. Patrick Züchner, CIO Aukera. “Only established market participants with long-standing teams can seriously offer these attributes. They therefore use this market phase to realise opportunities with an attractive risk-return profile for the benefit of their investors, as we do at Hercules”, adds Lars Armgart, CEO Aukera.
