Swiss Hawk to launch real estate funds

Investment company Swiss Hawk and Deutsche European Real Estate have teamed up to launch two real estate investment funds aimed at Germany and the Baltic area.

Swiss Hawk announced today it has agreed to work with Deutsche European Real Estate (DERE) to initiate and launch two real estate investment funds to be listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange before the end of the year.

The Hanseatic and Baltic Fund will target commercial and residential real estate in the Hanseatic and Baltic regions. The Deutsche Residential Fund will invest in residential real estate throughout Germany.

Swiss Hawk has agreed to provide capital and arrange for the new funds to be listed on the Frankfurt Market. It will also help raise additional capital for the two funds from institutional and private equity investors. The company says it is currently in talks with investors in Germany, the UK and Switzerland.

Deutsche European Real Estate was given exclusive fund management of the two real estate funds.

Based in London and Frankfurt, DERE is a property advisory company that focuses on the creation of real estate investment vehicles and entering into long-term real estate fund management agreements.

Swiss Hawk focuses on high growth alternative asset investments and currently specializes in digital media and entertainment; information technology; real estate investment management and finance; and the renewable energy and environmental technology sectors.
