Shopping experience with high recreational benefits – retail real estate service counts among the sought property segments – after all, people will always go shopping.

Modern shopping centres are equally popular with shoppers and investors. For they combine the consumer experience with a qualified leisure options. Not only will you find luxury, trend and convenience goods all under the same roof. But once you are done shopping you may choose among restaurants, cinemas and gyms to relax. It is a success model that works across the globe and promises long-term profitability. For the fund management, the challenge is to pick the right offer from an ample supply – and to scrutinise them more closely than others might. For instance, characteristics like sustainably stable rents matter more to us than high but short-lived ones. At the moment, the portfolio of the open-ended property fund hausInvest includes a total of 12 shopping centres in economically attractive locations in Europe and Japan. They play a key role in diversifying the portfolio of hausInvest in regard to both geographic region and economic use type. With a view to the favourable experience we have made with retail assets, we intend to keep expanding their share beyond the current 30 percent.

It is reasonable to expect the market share in Germany to climb to somewhere between 20 and 30 percent in the medium term. Among the major market participants in this segment counts the French Accor Group – Germany's leading hotel operator – which operates the brands Etap-Hotel, Ibis, Mercure, and Novotel. Motel One was among the fastest growing brands, expanding from 18 branches in 2007 to 43 hotels nationwide today. Both Accor and Motel One are tenants ofhausInvest properties.
