Helaba Invest making inroads in infra­structure and Asian real estate – successful first and second closing

Helaba Invest has successfully completed the first closing of the 96.5 million-euro HI-Infrastruktur-Multi Manager-Fonds as well as the second closing of the HI-Immobilien-Asien-Fonds in an amount of EUR 50.5 million.

Alternative invest­ments are becoming increasingly significant in the search for yield. Helaba Invest is meeting this challenge by continually expanding its product portfolio for institutional investors. Overall, Helaba Invest manages a portfolio of real estate and alternative investments with a volume of EUR 9.6 billion.

First closing of HI-Infra­struktur-Multi Manager-Fonds

Helaba Invest managed to raise a total of EUR 96.5 million by as early as the first closing on 10 November 2017. Helaba Invest has been managing non-listed infrastructure fund portfolios of German insurance companies, pension funds and public-sector organisations for many years and manages a volume of EUR 1.7 billion in this segment.

The HI-Infra­struktur-Multi Manager-Fonds is a special fund constituted under Luxembourg law with a European focus and a conser­vative risk profile (core and value added). The intention is to establish a broadly diversified infra­structure portfolio consisting of 10-12 target funds, with the aim of raising EUR 200 million in total fund assets. The fund’s target yield amounts to around 6.5 percent (net). A second closing is planned for the first half of 2018.

“Invest­ments in infra­structure offer constant and long-term cash flows that are not affected by economic cycles. The strong demand proves to us that the popularity of this asset class among insti­tutional investors is going from strength to strength due to the on-going low interest rate environment,” explains Ulrich Lingner, a member of Helaba Invest’s Board of Managing Directors.

Second closing of HI-Immo­bilien-Asien-Fonds

In the second closing of the HI-Immo­bilien-Asien-Fonds, launched in November 2016, Helaba Invest was successful in raising a total of EUR 50.5 million in equity from institutional investors, increasing the size of the fund to EUR 126.5 million. In total, Helaba Invest manages a 7.9 billion-euro portfolio of real estate invest­ments.

The HI-Immobilien-Asien-Fonds is a special fund constituted under Luxembourg law that invests indirectly in pan-Asian real estate. In so doing, it places an emphasis on a broad diversi­fication across different regions and sectors. As a value-added fund of funds, the fund aims for an average distri­bution of 3 percent as well as a total return of 10 percent.

Helaba Invest’s unique selling point in the segments of real estate and alternative asset classes on the German market remains a consistent focus on aligning its investment strategy towards specialised, indirect invest­ments (multi manager approach). Over the past few years, it has been successful in estab­lishing a high level of expertise in this area. “We continue to believe that our strategy of selecting specialised fund investments for our clients delivers significant value added”, Lingner adds.
