Investment Strategy

Our main focus is Germany, with interests also in Portugal, where structural market imbalances exist in the supply and demand of residential and commercial properties.

Addressing such structural market needs with the right development solutions, provides for long-term investment success and strong growth prospects. This is achieved by either directly investing into large-scheme development projects or real estate developers.

As a fully integrated real estate development platform, Aggregate Holdings is covering the entire value chain in its investments: from acquisition and financing to planning, development and marketing with the aim to then either sell to third parties or keep as yielding asset for the long-term.

Build & Hold assets

Development assets –constructed and held long-term for rental income genereation

Build & Sell assets

Development assets –constructed and (forward) sold to third parties for revenue generation

”Build & Hold“ assets

Selective development assets sourced to keep long-term as yielding assets after construction.

Inhouse project management and development combined with optimised financing solutions maximise the basis for strong value accretion of these projects post completion while assets are let out and generate rental cash flows.

”Build & Sell“ assets

Development assets sourced to sell to institutional investors, mostly on forward sale basis during construction.

Development margins are enhanced by optimising project financing in conjunction with forward sales and effective capital recycling.

The efficient matching of construction milestones with received deposit payments on (forward) sales allows for cash flow optimisation and project risk reduction.
