Allianz Real Estate wins seven prestigious industry awards

Munich, 03/01/2021

The real estate publications Real Estate Capital (REC) and PERE have handed Allianz Real Estate seven awards for the firm’s performance during 2020. Shortlisted by an independent jury and voted for by peers and partners across the industry, the seven-award haul is recognition of the tremendous work which, despite the global pandemic, delivered a successful 2020 for the business.


In what is a demonstration of consistency, for the fifth year running Allianz Real Estate’s European debt team, headed by Roland Fuchs, collected the award for Insurance Company Lender of the Year from REC. Three further awards followed from REC, with the teams located in each of the firm’s financing hubs in Munich, Paris and London each winning for one of their transactions in 2020. Deal of the Year for Southern Europe was awarded for the EUR 180 million financing of ECE’s acquisition of the intu Asturias retail asset in Oviedo, Spain (Munich team); Development Financing Deal of the Year was for the EUR 200 million loan for the development of Arboretum, Paris – Europe's largest cross-laminated timber and low-carbon office campus (Paris team); and Deal of the Year in the UK was won for the EUR 440 million loan to re-finance one of Lazari’s office portfolios in central London (London team).

PERE also rewarded Allianz Real Estate’s debt capability by presenting the firm with the Debt Firm of the Year award for Europe – recognition that Allianz Real Estate operates as both a lender and a debt investment manager. The firm also came out on top as PERE’s Institutional Investor of the Year both globally and in Europe.

Speaking about the awards, François Trausch, CEO Allianz Real Estate, said: “Congratulations to all the award winners. Despite the circumstances globally in 2020, Allianz Real Estate delivered a successful year for our clients – success which was built both on our consistency as a business and on the trustful relationships we have fostered in all the regions and sectors in which we operate. These awards reflect the tremendous work put in by our expert teams. Thank you to everyone in our global networks who voted for us, we sincerely appreciate your support and look forward to continued high performance with you in 2021 and beyond.“
