New office reinforces Brookfield’s commitment to the German market
Brookfield Asset Management (“Brookfield”) announced today the opening of its new Frankfurt office. The new office reinforces Brookfield’s long-term conviction in Germany and enables it to be closer to its investors, portfolio companies and investment opportunities across the German-speaking region.
Brookfield has been actively investing in Germany since 2013, and today has over €25 billion of assets across sectors critical to the German economy. Its portfolio spans digital and residential decarbonization infrastructure, student housing, logistics and renewable power, in addition to investments in iconic real estate like the newly redeveloped Potsdamer Platz in the heart of Berlin. Through its operations, Brookfield employs over 4,000 people in Germany.
Connor Teskey, President, Brookfield, said, “The launch of our new Frankfurt office is an exciting milestone in our continued growth in Europe. We have been investing in Germany for over a decade and have built a portfolio of high-quality assets and businesses and see significant opportunities for further investment.”
Sikander Rashid, Head of Europe and Head of European Infrastructure, said, “Germany is home to some of the world’s foremost industrial companies and ranks among the most influential economies globally. We are excited to partner with businesses seeking to reduce carbon emissions, localize supply chains and build out the critical infrastructure that underpins an increasingly digital economy.”
Brookfield’s investments in Germany over the last two years total over €10 billion of equity and include a partnership with Deutsche Telekom on the €10.7 billion GD Towers transaction, the acquisition of Sunovis, a German solar developer, and an investment in alstria REIT.
