Amundi’s pan-European diversification strategy for property management relies on over 40 years of technical expertise and on local partnerships with experts in each country. We are thus able to build the local ecosystems we need for the acquisition and management of our property assets. European real estate markets are diverse enough to provide opportunities that depend upon the economic situation, perspectives, and major unexpected events that could occur in each country.
With its fundraising power, Amundi has the ability to take part in Europe’s major real estate transactions, with over Eur2bn invested every year on average. Around 50% of these investments are carried out in France, while the other half is shared between a select number of European countries and major cities: Germany (Berlin), the United Kingdom (London), Italy (Milan), the Czech Republic (Prague), the Netherlands (Amsterdam) and Luxemburg.
Office buildings represent over 60% of our assets under management, but our diversification strategy leads us to cover all segments of the real estate market, from hotels to commercial buildings and supportive housing.

A few of our recent investments
A portfolio of offices in Paris
In 2016, we acquired a large pan-European portfolio of office buildings, including three assets located in Ile-de-France, for a total value of Eur750m. The operation was structured as a “club deal”, in which institutional investors were invited to co-invest, alongside Amundi-managed discretionary funds.
The Rotterdam Office and the Towers Hotel
In the second quarter of 2016, an Amundi-managed investors’ club, comprised of a group of Korean investors and an existing Amundi fund, acquired a vast real estate complex in Rotterdam, that included offices, a hotel, a shopping centre and a parking lot. The transaction amounted to close to Eur350m.
