Where are we?
Risk minimisation is the guiding principle for the expansion and future growth of Terrania AG. An important factor is the distribution of risk through diversification across different countries including properties in Germany, Switzerland, United States, and sectors of the property market that include office, industrial and logistics, retail, residential, hotel and parking assets.
Our Strategy & Approach
Our goal is to generate mid and long-term, stable and attractive returns for our shareholders and business partners. Our investments, therefore, cover a widely diversified selection of properties in different sectors – from apartments, offices, hotels, logistics and retail facilities through garages – in Germany as well as other areas of Europe, Asia, and the USA. This strategy for the distribution of risk allows E1 to remain independent of developments on individual markets and supports the stable growth of the company.
Broad Sector Diversification
E1 has developed a portfolio that is widely diversified across the major sectors of the property market: offices, residential, retail, logistics, hotels, industrial facilities, and garages. This structure increases the stability of earnings and the value of the property portfolio because the cyclical developments in the various sectors are generally not comparable and submarkets with favourable conditions are able to offset weakness in other areas of business. However, not only the stability but also the mid- and long-term earning power of the entire portfolio is strengthened by this sector diversification. This, allows E1 to make optimal use of the many opportunities offered by booming markets. Property companies that concentrate on only a single sector are limited in their range of activities and, for this reason, react much more slowly to market developments.
Combination of Investment Properties, Development Projects and Investments in Other Companies
E1 also utilizes different methods to invest in properties. The traditional approach to acquiring objects for the portfolio has now been complemented by investments in development projects. This shift in focus is a reaction by E1 to the declining returns on most of the markets in which it invests. Although these declines have reduced the prospects for earnings on the purchase of completed objects, they have also led to a significant increase in the earnings potential of successful development projects. The well-planned combination of investments in completed properties and development projects will make it possible for E1 to match the high level of earnings recorded in previous years in spite of the changing market conditions. Strategic investments in property companies also form an integral part of the E1 investment strategy.
Focus on Strategic Asset-Management
Conscious of a more demanding market, the E1 has shifted its focus toward the strategic Asset Management of its portfolio. This includes both the purchase and sale of residential and commercial properties, as well as the assessment, optimization, and analysis of our portfolio.
