50 years LHI Group

October 16, 2023

Shaping the future on the basis of a successful past.

1973 – 2023: The LHI Group celebrates its 50th anniversary. On 14 September 2023, customers, investors and business partners were invited to the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The laudatory speech was given by the Bavarian State Minister for Science and Art, Markus Blume, Member of the State Parliament.

In the year of its founding, the company still saw itself as a specialist for commercial real estate leasing, but over the decades it has developed into the German expert for structured financing as well as one of the leading national asset and investment managers. LHI structures and manages a large number of projects in the real estate, renewable energy, aviation and rolling stock segments.

50 years of dynamism - and yet LHI has always focused on one thing - the high stability of its business model. LHI has an AA asset management rating and has received awards, including the award as the best asset manager for its innovation and structuring competence.

LHI owes this story of success, on the one hand, to the high level of commitment of its employees.

On the other hand, it is due to its customers, investors and business partners that have placed their trust in LHI over the years. LHI has mastered highs and sometimes lows, from which it has always emerged stronger. This is also reflected in the fact that since the beginning of the company's history, only positive business results have been achieved.

Major milestones in the 50 years were the first investment product in 1981, the take-over of several leasing portfolios in the 2000s and the establishment of its own capital management company in 2013. The LHI Group has been supporting financing solutions in the asset class of renewable energies for more than 20 years. In the recent past, transactions in the rolling stock sector have supplemented the range of services, including the financing of new trains for the Munich suburban railway

The LHI Group currently manages a portfolio of almost EUR 14 billion. This includes more than 500 real estate objects of various types of use, over 100 wind farms and solar parks, hydroelectric power plants and charging stations, trains as well as passenger and freight aircraft of the most modern generation.

We would like to thank all our employees, investors, customers and business partners for their trust and decades of loyalty. This trust and the cooperation in a spirit of partnership have made a significant contribution to the company's successful history.

We look to the future with optimism. We are convinced that our unique structuring competence and our sustainable investment products will continue to be successful. The LHI Group has always distinguished itself by its willingness to go the extra mile and develop new ideas for changing markets. We will continue this story of success.
