Vice chairman of ALFI, Managing Director Union Investment Luxembourg S.A.

As a traditional asset manager what is your motivation for turning towards this asset class now?

“Our institutional clients are confronted with a long lasting low-return environment in the traditional asset classes. Therefore their focus is shifting towards alternative investments with higher return profiles, such as private equity and private debt. Union Investment offers private equity solutions since 2005 and is going to launch private debt solutions with a special focus on German real estate debt next year. Furthermore private real estate debt is a perfect supplement to our existing open and close-ended real estate equity funds.”
