our asset classes
Germany is one of the most popular real estate investment locations. This will not change in the near future.
Why you should invest in Real Estate
When it comes to material assets, real estate is the most demanded asset class and therefore particularly important. Whether professional, semi-professional or private investors, real estate is part of the investment strategy for all investor groups.
Long-term returns, low volatility and opportunities for value appreciation are equally valued by investors. Not all properties are the same. Experts recognize the differences and thus also the opportunities and risks from investment opportunities. Active asset management today secures the earnings opportunities of tomorrow.

frequently asked questions
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.
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.
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.
Renewable energies are investments for our future. The path to ensure the long-term supply of renewable energies is irreversible. Therefore, the expansion and demand for solar parks and wind farms is growing.
Why you should invest in Renewables/Infrastructure
Due to their long production cycle of at least 20 to 30 years, renewable energies are particularly suitable for investors with a long-term investment horizon.
Reduced production costs allow economical operation even at low subsidy rates. Currently rising electricity prices make operation conceivable without subsidies.
In addition, there are further positive effects such as additional revenue opportunities through qualification as green energy and the very low correlation with other investments.
Why the LHI Group is your investment partner in the asset classes Renewables/Infrastructure
Commercial management, portfolio management and performance management are completely in our hands. This gives you an experienced partner for the entire duration of the investment.
The technical management of our parks is carried out together with our project partners.
We only work with project partners who have been tested by us through an intensive selection process and who meet our high standards.
Our investment focus
In the field of renewable energies we are currently concentrating on photovoltaics and wind-onshore. In the future, our focus will also be on other technologies such as water. We deliberately decided to invest only in Euro countries which offer stable legal conditions with regard to feed-in tariffs.

According to many forecasts, the global average demand for passenger and cargo flights will continue to rise over the next ten or twenty years.
Why you should invest in Aviation
Aircraft, engines and helicopters can be individually secured and can in principle be used worldwide at any time. The investment is therefore not tied to a specific location. In addition, the aviation market is highly regulated and standardized for safety reasons - an A320 is always an A320. This also means that these assets are more liquid and the determination of the purchase price more transparent than with other "alternative assets". The costs of maintenance and the procurement of spare parts are also well calculable and the periods are relatively easy to estimate.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Base value is the economic base value. The expert's valuation in an open, unregulated and stable market environment with a balanced supply-demand ratio. The base value of an aircraft / turbine is defined by projected historical values.
The soft value is the future purchase price that can be achieved at a lower limit in a normal market. The market is characterised by a higher demand than the supply and therefore negatively affected. This can occur with reduced air traffic, lower transactions on the market or with new technologies.
Market value is the value of the market. The appraiser's assessment of a probable purchase price, adjusted to market conditions at the time of the request. It is assumed that the aircraft / turbine is in good condition, the hypothetical sales partners are willing and creditworthy and the sale takes place in an open and unregulated market.
TheCurrent Maintenance Adjusted Market Value is theprobable realisation value. The valuation takes into account current aircraft / turbine conditions, such as, for example, hours (flight hours) cycles (take-offs and landings) and maintenance as well as the current market.
Maintenance reserves are the maintenance reserves, also known as rental surcharge. These are the amounts collected during the lease term in order to cover the costs of maintenance.
Full life refers to the operating state of an aircraft or a turbine that corresponds to zero hours of flight. A contract with the return in full-life condition stipulates that in cases where worn parts are not replaced or fundamentally overhauled, financial compensation payments must be made.
The IATA "International Air Transport Association" is an international association of the aviation industry, which represents 240 airlines with over 84% of the total air-traffic volume.
ISTAT is the "International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading". This international association of transport aircraft trade with over 4,000 members of various airlines, aircraft/engine manufacturers, etc. is the central coordinator of certification requirements, issuing of guidelines and standards, and also provides a platform for information exchange.
LLP's "Life Limited Parts" are the wear parts of an aircraft or engine.
Narrow-bodies are small narrow-body aircraft, as a rule small-haul or medium-haul aircraft with a series of gears, e.g. A320 or Boeing 737.
Wide-bodies are wide-body aircraft, as a rule long-haul aircraft with more than one gear such as Boeing 777 or the A380.
