FRANKFURT, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Germany may reform rules under which investors can pull their money out of the country's ailing open-ended real estate funds, Handelsblatt reported on Thursday, citing political sources.
For the real estate, I found Wertart’s assumption of just using 85% quite reasonable.
With regard to cashflow timing, one can now make many assumptions.
Following the transaction, the company will be combined with Cordea Savills, Savills' investment management business.
Fredrik Boheman, Head of SEB Germany and chairman of SEB Asset Management AG comments:"SEB Asset Management AG has in recent years undergone a fundamental re-positioning in response to market developments.
Leading the field is Kan Am itself which has realised €3.9bn.
