In a constantly changing world, where new technologies and ever-changing trends influence the markets, it is essential to invest in a proven investment strategy that helps you identify opportunities, minimize risks and achieve long-term returns. It is for this reason that OpenFunds would like to introduce you to the Deutsche Finance Group, which has been established for many years as an experienced and renowned investment manager. Deutsche Finance Group as an international investment company with offices in Munich, London, Frankfurt, Denver, Madrid, and Luxembourg offers institutional and private investors the access to institutional markets and exclusive investments in private equity real estate and infrastructure. The Deutsche Finance Group manages assets of EUR 12.2 billion.

For years, the Deutsche Finance Group has been successfully investing in U.S. prime offices, residential construction in the U.S. as well as in the growing asset class of Lab-Office real estate and has thus aligned its investment portfolio early on in a future-oriented and inflation-protected manner. The Deutsche Finance Group has already been very successfully invested in the biotech metropolis of Boston since 2019 with a focused "Lab-Office" investment strategy and recognized the emerging trend of this growing alternative asset class at an early stage. To present more details on this exciting investment opportunity, we would therefore like to invite you to three lunch events with Symon H. Godl, Group Asset Management Officer and Prof. Dr. John Davidson, Group Research Officer of Deutsche Finance Group, taking place in Lugano, Zurich and Geneva from Sept. 25-27 around lunchtime.
