Invested in a different approach

Real estate is a vital part of any successful investment portfolio. Real estate investments can satisfy the need for long-term, low-risk equity growth as well as generate more opportunistic, shorter term gains. But more than this, bricks and mortar investments are also investments in the very fabric of society, whether it is a residential, commercial, industrial or public building. As an expert in real estate investments of all kinds, Heitman is one of only a few privately owned companies in this competitive sector. It prides itself on its transparency and respect for clients – something it calls the Heitman Difference.

Tailored travel insurance

When travelling for business or pleasure, travel insurance is often a vital and sometimes overlooked component. Security and safety are major concerns for many people when they are enjoying time away from home. Europaeiske Rejseforsikrings A/S, headquartered in Copenhagen, has over 95 years of experience in providing customers with peace of mind.

Keeping fit for growth in financial software

Despite its position as Italy's leading software house for corporate treasury management and financial planning, Piteco S.p.A. is still setting itself challenging goals; one of the most important is continued growth. Founded in 1980, the company has already seen extensive change in the market, and is striving to remain at the forefront of future developments.

Closer to home than you think

There is a special feeling that finds us when we step into certain places. Sometimes those places make us feel safe and comfortable, sometimes they remind us of other places we have lived. Often it is a combination, but always, they create a sensation that is universally identifiable: It is the feeling of home. Utleiemegleren AS understands better than anyone the feeling of home and what it means. By bridging the gap between landlords and tenants, Utleiemegleren ensures satisfaction and more meaningful relationships.

Investing with impact: Helping people to help themselves

The world is getting smaller: not literally of course, but the march of globalization and digitalization means that we are all far more aware of what is happening in other regions of the world. In particular, images and information about the conditions in which citizens live and work in developing countries has made many people pause for thought. Banks and wealth managers in particular are experiencing the effects of this increasing awareness. Many clients are no longer content to allow the professionals to simply invest on their behalf; they demand that their money is used for social improvement around the globe. Belgian firm Incofin Investment Management is a specialist in so-called impact investment.

Housing is a fundamental right

The housing market for affordable homes has experienced dramatic changes recently. People who survive on a low income or need extra support are literally left out in the cold. The Belgian Wallonia is a challenged region with an unemployment rate of 20% in some areas. Here, the social institution Centr’Habitat SCRL has set off to create living space for people in need.

Real estate with a vision

Developing houses that are welcomed by their owners is relatively easy in the higher end of the market. Achieving this for the average citizen by developing well-designed apartments that allow for several functions and increase in value over time is an art in itself. Victoria Dom S.A. is a Polish family-owned project developer with a clear vision of residential development. The company is currently active in Warsaw and Berlin. With sales exceeding 1,000 apartments per year, the future is looking bright for this lean and profitable organisation. Victoria Dom S.A is headquartered in Warsaw.

Trade finance specialists for the future markets

Since the financial crisis of 2007 which finally resulted in a world economic crisis, the financial market significantly changed. Many non-bank players entered the market. At the same time, the traditional banks keep withdrawing from several business fields in order to minimize their risks. One of these fields which are not covered by the banks any more is financial trading in emerging markets. Here, the DF Deutsche Forfait AG, based in Cologne, Germany, comes into the game.

Commercial property consultancy

Real estate is one of the most popular and stable investment opportunities available. However, in order to maximize returns, it is best to take advice from a property expert. It is even better to avail oneself of the comprehensive services offered by a specialist commercial property consultant such as SPG Intercity SA in Geneva. Founded in 2000 as a joint venture between Société Privé de Gérance in Geneva and Intercity in Zurich, the company was created to offer a service that up until then was not available in the Swiss market: consultancy and brokerage.
