Planning, research, analysis - we keep on top of things

Never before have the markets, participants and underlying economic conditions changed so quickly as over the past few years. The following also applies to an overall stable real estate market such as in Germany: Whether a real estate project progresses well or badly depends on many factors; market and tenants, micro and macro location are only some of them.

It is just as important for us as a bank financing real estate as for you as client to have an intimate understanding of the market environment in which we jointly plan projects. Our stable network of expertise that has been built up over many years - both within the Bank and externally with proven partners - makes a crucial contribution to this.

For example, a market conference with experts from different divisions of the bank is held twice a year, at which current risks and opportunities of the markets served by us are analysed in detail. Furthermore, we publish periodic industry sector analyses.
