- Strong 2019 for publity
Frankfurt 14.11.2019 – publity AG (Scale, ISIN DE0006972508) has increased its assets under management from EUR 4.6 billion at the end of 2018 to over EUR 5.5 billion despite numerous property sales. By the end of 2020, the real estate assets under management are expected to increase to around EUR 7 billion. The positive development in asset management reflects publity’s strong positioning as one of the most successful players in the German commercial real estate market with excellent access to attractive properties and a broad network.
Over the past few months, a number of properties have been acquired for customers and also for the company’s own real estate portfolio, which is located in the subsidiary PREOS Real Estate AG, and sold profitably. Within the framework of asset management contracts, publity receives a finder’s fee for the purchase of the property, is remunerated for the asset management of the properties and receives a share in the profits from the sale of the properties. publity participates in all value increases of its own portfolio held via PREOS.
Thomas Olek, CEO and major shareholder of publity AG: “We’re having a tremendous year at publity. It is clear that there still are numerous attractive properties on the German office real estate market and we find them – for our customers in asset management and for our own portfolio at our subsidiary PREOS Real Estate AG. Our extremely extensive real estate database, our network and our many years of experience are the basis for this. The market success of publity obviously also convinces institutional investors from all over the world, which is why we expect assets under management to increase to around 7 billion euros over the year.”
