BVK hotel fund

A secure and sensible investment in the future

About the BVK hotel fund

We are delighted to have been asked to provide our services to the BVK – one of Europe’s most important institutional investors with approx. 97 billion euros in assets under management. In 2018, the GBI launched a hotel fund together with the BVK and Universal-Investment as a service capital management company. This is a special fund under Luxembourg law that invests in hotels in the DACH region. GBI’s scope of tasks here ranges from the acquisition and management to the exit of the hotel properties.

The fund’s target volume is 500 million euros and assets with a value of 360 million euros have already been acquired.
