Nominations in each category are whittled down to a shortlist by REC Europe; the winner is decided by peers and partners across the industry in a public vote. While 2021 was another challenging period against the backdrop of the ongoing pandemic, Allianz Real Estate’s European Debt team was able to deliver its highest annual volume of new loan production (EUR 2.2 billion), strengthening its 12-country, pan-European footprint.
Allianz Real Estate’s European debt program reached EUR 11.6 billion assets under management (AUM) by the end of 2021. In addition, the firm continued to invest on behalf of its Luxembourg-regulated debt fund, PAREC, which has now deployed over EUR 6 billion since its inception in 2018 – a figure which also includes almost EUR 1 billion of commitments from third-party clients investing alongside Allianz.
Speaking about the awards, Roland Fuchs, Head of European Real Estate Finance for Allianz Real Estate, said: “These awards are testament to the expertise and consistently high performance of our Munich, Paris and London teams and the relationships they have built throughout the industry. Our lending business has an extremely strong reputation in the markets in which we operate. We look forward to another successful year working with our partners in order to deliver real value to our clients.”
