All risks under control. All opportunities within our reach.

Fund management: all-encompassing. Risk management: state-of-the-art.

The quality of our funds is built on our many years of experience and the depth of asset expertise that our specialists possess. As well as assessing potential value enhancement, our in-house professionals also actively manage assets on a continuous basis, for the full duration of the funds. Our wide-ranging expertise spans from purchasing, to marketing and proximity to assets, helping to anticipate risks early and to successfully modify investment structures.

Risks are one thing you can rely on, but our risk management is another.

Risk Management at KGAL Investment Management GmbH & Co. KG has set up a specific  risk management system designed to identify, measure and manage the relevant risks. Our risk management system supports all three management divisions through regular monitoring of key parameters at market, fund and investment level, and using the data to make specific recommendations. By discussing the topics face-to-face with transaction, asset and portfolio managers, we continue to minimise risk at all levels.

Our risk management supports all divisions.

Transaction Management is responsible for the acquisition and disposition of the funds’ investment targets. Each transaction manager ensures access to the relevant markets and concludes individual transactions. They work in close collaboration with Risk Management teams, which allows them to make risk-optimised decisions.
