Analysis and Strategy for Assets and Portfolios
From an investment point of view, it is not enough to simply hold or manage a real estate portfolio. Achieving the best possible performance requires active management based on a clearly defined real estate strategy. Our asset and portfolio analysis supports private and public organisations on their path to a successful strategy by looking at the entire real estate lifecycle – from acquisition to successful exit.
Portfolio owners are often unaware of the opportunities and risks presented by their portfolio, and cannot accurately quantify costs or savings potential, spatial efficiency, or flexibility. They are also not sufficiently informed about the condition of their properties and the risks arising from the associated operator responsibility. Many companies are in the dark about what costs they will incur in the coming years and whether building operation and use are economical.
This can be remedied by comprehensive asset and portfolio analysis, which paves the way for a corresponding strategy.
Measures must be both economically viable and appropriate to the company’s balance sheet and profit and loss situation. Although the approach to the problem should be comprehensive, projects should be lean: Both the outcome and the means of achieving it should be economical, ecological and functional.
Here, both questions of lifecycle costs and the value of real estate play key roles: What are their current values and how are they expected to trend in future? How do variations in basic assumptions affect outcomes, and what are the economic impacts? And finally, which soptimisation measures improve the baseline situation in a really effective way, and which do not?
The complexity of this situation demands professionally sound strategies tailored to each portfolio owner’s specific requirements. This not least because most properties have users who want to go about their day-to-day business undisturbed.
