Private equity associated with tangible assets for Investors – KGAL GmbH & Co. KG has founded a new subsidiary. Based in Frankfurt, KGAL Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KG offers institutional customers investments in private equity transactions involving companies associated with real estate and infrastructure. With this move, KGAL Group continues to pursue consistent growth.
KGAL Equity Partners will focus on real estate companies, large-scale real estate portfolios, and company investments relating to infrastructure. “We are bringing together KGAL’s 50 years of expertise in the asset classes of tangible assets, and linking them with the specialist knowledge of an experienced private equity team,” Gert Waltenbauer, CEO of KGAL, explains, describing the objective of the company. “In doing this we are entering the important asset class of private equity and decisively completing our alternative investment offering to investors.”
The senior management team of KGAL Equity Partners consists of Frank W. Kewitz and Dr. Kay Ullman, who took up their roles at the beginning of July. Both have extensive expertise in private equity investments associated with real estate and infrastructure. “We are delighted to have brought on board such an expert team for KGAL, made up of individuals who are so well respected in the market,” emphasises CEO Waltenbauer. Frank W. Kewitz has previously worked for companies including PATRIZIA and Fortress Investment Group, while Dr. Kay Ullman has been employed by PATRIZIA and Lazard. They have successfully completed major, complex real estate transactions with a volume exceeding €25 billion.
Alongside its core business, KGAL continually pursues future-oriented investment markets, with the company founding KGAL New Frontiers GmbH & Co. KG with this in mind back in 2018. The objective is to offer access to new, high-interest investments; if the test phase is successful, these will also be offered to institutional investors.
