Excellent
merger

To drive the success story of HFS, a strategic partnership was sought. A partner was found in 2017, the CORESTATE Capital Group with a business strategy that ideally complements the HFS business segment. Since 1 July 2017, HFS has been a fully owned subsidiary of Corestate Capital S.A.

These transactions have made CORESTATE one of the leading listed asset and investment managers with a focus on real estate equity, debt and alternative assets in the German-speaking world.

HFS AG is a company of the CORESTATE Capital Group.

As a leading fully integrated real estate investment manager, the CORESTATE Capital Group manages assets (AuM) worth approximately EUR 22 billion(1). With a total transaction volume of more than EUR 34 billion (since its foundation in 2006), the company offers a diversified range of products and services customised to various investor needs. More than 560 employees in 41 offices in 7 countries ensure direct access to the regional real estate markets. Working from Germany, the long-term growth strategy is centrally geared to the whole of Europe.
