Berlin, Germany — (SBWIRE) — 05/02/2022 — One of the world’s largest real estate investment managers, Allianz Real Estate, achieved huge growth last year with a portfolio increase to EUR 11.6 billion in assets. The global logistics portfolio is a prominent measure of growth at the firm, according to insiders, Allianz took advantage of the opportunity to establish the portfolio early and has now achieved a leading market position in the sector, which is partly responsible for the increase in growth. The focus for the team has been aligned with the wider strategy of ESG and sustainability at Allianz. The team selects assets and partners that demonstrate robust ESG profiles and is building a logistics portfolio that has notably high standards. Logistics exposure at Allianz is made up of EUR 8.6 billion in equity investment and EUR 3 billion in financing. The focus on sustainability is unsurprising for a firm that has committed to reducing the carbon footprint of its portfolio by 25% by 2025.

The team at Selby Jennings said, “Little did we know that the pandemic would spark a new chapter for financial services. From ever-evolving regulations, mercurial consumer expectations, digital transformation, to the heightened competition from incumbents and new entrants, financial services verticals evolved at lightning speed – all while in a stage of poised recovery with the need to future-proof operations from additional disruption.
Alongside challenges brought on by the pandemic, financial services in 2021 were gripped by the wider political and socio-economic context that was Brexit, as banks and financial institutions packed their bags to move some, or all, of their operations to cities across Europe. However, Financial Services were one of the few bright spots of the past year, providing fuel to the economy and scaling up in a time where many sectors wouldn’t take the risk. 2022 is already shaping up to be a record-breaking year in terms of talent movement, and we can’t wait to help clients secure that world-class talent.”
