FAQ regarding careers

You will receive a confirmation once we receive your application. We deliberately do not filter your applications. We review each application individually and make a first pre-selection. In a next step, the documents are forwarded to the relevant department. If your qualifications meet our needs we will invite you for an interview. 

If there still is interest from both sides after the first interview, we invite you to a second interview. During this interview we can get to know you and you can get to know us better. After each interview we will let you know as soon as possible, if and how we will proceed.

Your personal and professional development is important to us. To challenge and support you are important components of personal development. Your knowledge contributes significantly to achieving the goals we set at LHI.

A regular exchange between management and employee is very important to us. Three feedback meetings take place during the probationary period. This provides both sides the opportunity to take stock and discuss good or critical points. These discussions are also important to us after the probationary period. That is why annual employee performance reviews are an integral part of our communication culture.

All meals are prepared fresh and on-site. We look for regional products as well as health-conscious and light dishes. Every day, we offer our employees a variety of breakfast and lunch options. Drinks such as coffee, tea, water and soft drinks complete the assortment. We also serve fresh fruit daily.

Is a professional perspective important to you? We offer this and individually design them with you. Whether you are a manager or on a specialist career track - both are possible with us.

We would like to get to know you during the discussions and learn more about your professional career, your experience and your expertise. In addition to your professional knowledge, it is also important to us that you would make a good fit into LHI.

FAQ regarding private investors

Closed publicly-offered AIF are a form of long-term joint investments in material assets (e.g. real estate, aircraft or renewable energies). 

Yes, closed publicly-offered AIF are regulated products. For these, provisions of the German Investment Code (KAGB) have been in force since July 22, 2013.

For example with closed publicly-offered AIF, investors participate in the management of a property by the income generated from letting. In addition, sales proceeds are distributed regularly to the investors after deducting the liabilities of the investment fund after the sale of the properties.

FAQ regarding real estate

We mainly invest in commercial properties (office, retail trade and hotels). Mixed use properties often support our diversification approach. Residential properties as investment assets are not excluded. Investments relevant to respective use, together with the structural possibilities of the building, are decisive for our investments.

For us "Core" to "Value-Added/Manage to Core" locations are interesting. For example, our premium property portfolio is mainly invested in 1a / high-street locations, with high property quality and long-term leases with high tenant credit standing. In the "Core Plus" and "Value-add/Manage to Core" investment strategies, the value is created by active asset management and repositioning of the property.

Value is created through proactive asset and portfolio management. Among others, this includes e. g. renegotiations and a modernisation of the rented spaces leading to an increase in rental income.  Further factors in generating value are the expansion of the rentable spaces by a requalification of space reserves, extensions, utilisation of construction reserves and modification of building rights.  The revenue side may be optimised by leasing the spaces to tenants with commercial utilization of higher standards, reducing the vacancy rate and performing an active receivables management. The expenditure side may be optimised by an optimisation and reduction of ancillary costs and maintenance costs while maintaining a consistent level of services.

Our investment strategies take into account specific legal requirements (e.g. Investment Management Act KAGB, Investment Tax Law), as well as investment-specific requirements for mixed-risk or risk diversification by diversifying investments in a portfolio with properties in different locations with several tenants or diversified use as well as different contract periods.

FAQ regarding the public sector

Through cost-saving financing structures, hidden reserves can be realised tax-neutral.

In addition to traditional advantages such as planning dependability, liquidity creation, balance sheet and key figure optimisation, further individual goals can be achieved. Leasing combines the flexibility of a lease with proprietary use, combined with later accessibility possibilities of the property. It can also be said: "Leasing is the best of owning and rent."
