GLL Real Estate Partners GmbH (GLL) is a Munich based real estate funds management group. GLL was formed in 2000 by three senior executives of HypoVereinsbank, Germany’s then largest real estate bank, in a joint venture with Lend Lease Corporation and Italian insurance giant Assicurazioni Generali. Generali has some €420 billion under management and is capitalised at over €25 billion. During 2006 Lend Lease divested and the Group is now majority owned by its management team and the balance remains with Generali. GLL’s funds under management now exceed €4 billion with investments across Western Europe, Central Eastern Europe and the United States. Investors with the Group include pension funds, insurance companies and sovereign entities. GLL’s demonstrable investment track record combined with the extensive network of Generali and GLL’s own distinguished Advisory Board, provides a unique deal sourcing capability which has enabled GLL to build a balanced portfolio of institutional grade assets.
