Deutsche Finance International or DFI, is a fast-growing boutique private equity platform based in London. We invest in European real estate and real estate-anchored businesses, transforming our investments through value-add strategies to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns.
We are opportunistic in seeking undervalued assets or businesses with fixable impairments or potential for improvement. Through hands-on asset management and targeted development, DFI and our partners aim to add value to our investments by increasing income, upgrading the user experience and making them more investible for institutional capital. We invest across all types of real estate, with a specialisation in “alternative” and operationally intensive sectors such as student accommodation, private rented residential and hospitality.
We act as the investment advisor for DFI funds, co-investment partners and the direct global real estate investment activity of the Deutsche Finance Group. The platform serves a global institutional client base including pension funds, insurance companies, financial institutions and family offices. The firm is privately owned by its Managing Partners and Deutsche Finance Group.
