Transitioning to an Institutional Investor Base

In 2016, a manager of German Retail assets had an exclusive sale & leaseback opportunity within a portfolio of assets from a major tenant. Until that point the manager had been investing through retail funds, and the new portfolio would not fit the fund’s investment criteria or the timing of an increase in capital from the existing investor base.

  • STEP 1

    We ran a targeted fundraising campaign process and identified two Middle-Eastern income-focused investors. We advised the manager on the investment process of these investors and their need for a Shariah-compliant vehicle for the acquisition.

  • STEP 2

    We arranged the Shariah certification process and raised an initial equity investment of €25m for the sale and leaseback transaction, with a view to increase the allocation in conjunction with another sale and leaseback opportunity with the same anchor tenant.


    Our client was able to source institutional capital from an investor which they would have otherwise not been able to close, and therefore strengthening their strategic relationship with a major tenant.
