Across manages real estate investments in Russia and has a solid background from the CIS, Baltics and Poland. We believe that these real estate markets – although having experienced higher volatility in comparison to traditional western markets – offer attractive risk-adjusted returns. Higher long term economic growth, lower debt levels, and a deficit of modern premises are the primary drivers.
Our approach to managing assets in the CIS emphasises robust hands-on management and attention to details. Yet, the daily grunt is paired with a long-term strategic perspective. Given the volatility of emerging markets, it is important to be one step ahead and to plan for several scenarios.
Proven concepts from Western markets will work well in an emerging economy, but must be adjusted to meet various market specific challenges. By our hands on management and strategic outlook we increase returns and create stability in an otherwise turbulent environment.
