The owner-managed investment manager Aukera Real Estate AG, headquartered in Essen, made a significant leap forward in this year’s “Real Estate Capital Debt Fund 30” (REC 30) ranking. Following 25th place last year, the financing boutique now landed at position 19,by attaining capital commitments of more than 1.3 billion euros – entirely from German institutional investors.
“We are proud that after such a short time we already rank among the top 20 of Europe’s alternative real estate lenders,” Aukera CIO Dr. Patrick Züchner said. “We offer borrowers first-class solutions even in a challenging market environment, and continue to strengthen our position in real estate financing. This dynamic development is only possible thanks to our dedicated team, which has a joint history of more than ten years, building and always justifying the trust our investors placed in us with capital commitments of such an amount,” says Aukera CEO Lars Armgart. This trust on the part of investors, but also borrowers and business partner, has “contributed significantly to our success”, Armgart added to express his thanks.
