Logistic Real Estate

Investment Management

RLI Investors has extensive sector knowledge and expert know-how in the investment management of logistics real estate. Institutional investors investing in our RLI Logistics Fund – Germany II as well as international fund and asset managers and family offices benefit from it.

As part of their investment strategy, we identify suitable properties and provide reliable information on market and development potential. In addition, we manage the logistics property strategically and sustainably and raise individual development potential.

Acquisition

Through our established network of real estate owners, brokers and tenants, we have very good market access, which allows us to both assert ourselves in the bidding process and to acquire properties directly or off-market. Very good contacts to project developers allow us an early start in project development and access to new construction projects in a top location.

Every investment decision is based on a detailed research analysis.

Acquisition process

  • Identification of suitable logistic properties
  • Receipt and review of offers by taking into account location, third-party usage, tenant demand, building age and development potential
  • Calculation of long-term return ratios and a reasonable purchase price
  • Submission of an offer
  • Letter of Intent
  • Hand-over into Transaction Management

Transaction Management

The Transaction Management at RLI Investors includes the management and execution of the related due diligence processes when purchasing. In doing so, we examine the specialities of the property comprehensively from the commercial, legal and technical point of view taking into account the individual needs of the investors while we get support from professional transaction partners. Most of the transactions carried out are classic asset deals, share deals, forward deals and sale-and-lease-back deals.

  • Short presentation of the property
  • Due diligence (extensive examination of commercial, fiscal, legal and  technical parameters
  • Negotiation, structuring and execution of the sales contract
