François Trausch being at the helm of Allianz Real Estate since beginning of the year comments: "For us MIPIM is one of the key industry events during the year: it provides the perfect platform not only for networking and to test the waters but also to further position ourselves as one of the leading global real estate investment and asset management companies and to set the ground for new deals in order to meet our investment targets in 2016."

Best chance to win the MIPIM-Award

After having been honored with the Special Jury Prize in the Best of SIMI awards some months ago Laennec - the prestigious development in the French real estate portfolio - has been nominated for the MIPIM Awards in the category, Best Refurbished Building. The historical property in Paris was renovated by the architect, Benjamin Mouton, who also led the renovation of the Notre-Dame cathedral or the Invalides in Paris and is rented at the luxury group, Kering. The result will become public at the Awards Ceremony on 17 March, 2016 at 18.30.
