KGAL publishes Perspective Real Estate – In its “Perspective Real Estate” publication, leading independent investment and asset manager KGAL presents information about current developments, as well as supplying background knowledge. The most recent edition focuses on strategies for the real estate industry, walkability, and the London team’s favourite places in the city.
The real estate industry has committed to the principle of “Location, location, location”, and the walkability concept is an idea that has taken root to reflect a tangible societal change. In his comments, André Zücker emphasises that “People beat location.” He is convinced that different fund strategies can exist alongside one another, provided that they are precisely developed and clearly defined.
Portfolio Manager for Real Estate, Helge Vahlenkamp describes the concept and sets out the consequences for the real estate industry in an interview. “Walkability will be key to future sites,” he explains, going on to point out that walkability is a benchmark that can help to describe the quality of a location: “It’s about whether pedestrians want to spend time somewhere; are there any cafés and supermarkets? Excellent public transport links are also a key requirement.”
The KGAL team in London recommend their favourite places near the office, which is located in the Cannon Green serviced office complex, just a 5–10 minute walk away from Borough Market and popular restaurant, The Oyster Shed.
Perspective Real Estate offers a concise and incisive overview of information about the real estate industry.
