With this transaction, Allianz Real Estate France has achieved in 2010 a number of investments amounting to about 900 million, on track with our objectives," announces Olivier Wigniolle, CEO of Allianz Real Estate France.
The acquisition has been done on behalf of German companies of the Allianz Group, through a newly created fund structure (OPCI) managed by Immovalor, a subsidiary of Allianz.
