February 23, 2021
Strong year for the LHI Group
Focus on sustainable investments continues in 2021
All in all, 2020 was a successful year for the LHI Group. Despite Corona, the LHI Group implemented transactions with a volume of more than EUR 1.9 billion in 2020 and the assets under management totalled around EUR 15 billion as of 31 December 2020.
LHI invested around EUR 500 million in assets that flowed into investment products for institutional investors. Sustainability, social benefit and long-term economic success for investors were the main selection criteria. For example, LHI invested in the first solar park in Denmark, hydroelectric power plants in Portugal as well as in a day care centre in Hamburg and a local shopping centre in Munich. The active investment assets in the products for institutional investors amount to EUR 5.8 billion.
Sustainable investment offers will also be in focus in 2021. The renewable energy asset class, which has so far invested in solar parks and wind farms, will be successively supplemented by new technologies. In real estate, the special AIF "Living for the elderly" will be in the portfolio. In the aviation sector, the LHI Group will also offer investments that provide social benefits. This is possible, for example, through investments in helicopters used for air rescue and cargo aircraft or special aircraft for monitoring important environmental measures.
"We are aware of our responsibility and that of our investors, which is why our investment strategy in 2021 will continue to focus on sustainable assets. This is why we have joined the real estate industry's E.C.O.R.E initiative, which aims to establish industry standards for measuring the sustainability performance of real estate and portfolios," says Dieter Seitz, Managing Director of LHI Capital Management GmbH.
