In future, the restructured division will be headed by Djam Mohebbi-Ahari, who has already previously been Managing Director of Ampega Real Estate with responsibility for investments, finance and development. Chairman of the Ampega Management Board, Harry Ploemacher: “Over recent years, Ampega Real Estate has developed extremely well. We now want to integrate the property business even more emphatically within the culture of the Ampega Investment Group so as to target additional strong growth. The leadership of Djam Mohebbi-Ahari will enable us to achieve this.”
Ampega is also planning to expand its strategic collaboration partners in the Real Estate Germany segment over the coming years. Djam Mohebbi-Ahari: “In spite of the challenging market situation, we will drive forward our purchases with appropriate caution in a far-sighted approach and make the most of any investment opportunities presented. We will significantly increase the proportion of property held by the Group in the future. We will focus on strong, future-proof investment strategies with a well-balanced risk profile. The trend for our portfolio will be strong diversification away from retail and office properties. Alongside office property, the focus of our activities will be in the areas of residential, logistics, retail parks and mixed-use neighbourhood developments.”
