UK Stewardship Code

The UK Stewardship Code is overseen and published by the Financial Reporting Council (“FRC”), an independent regulator overseeing financial reporting, accounting and auditing and corporate governance. The Code sets the benchmark for institutional investors to meet ownership obligations in respect of UK companies, and the FRC requires it to be applied on a ‘comply or explain’ basis, meaning that where a firm chooses not to comply with a particular principle in the Code, it is still compliant with the overall Code where this is properly disclosed and explained. Whilst Apeiron adheres to the highest standards of corporate governance and due diligence in respect of its investments, it does not comply with the Code due to the fact it does not invest in equities. Consequently, the Code is not directly relevant to the type of activity undertaken by Apeiron.

Should any of the above change, Apiron will review its commitment to the Code.

LATEST NEWS

Apeiron Capital launches £300m student housing platform

LONDON / BERLIN/ STOCKHOLM – Apeiron Capital (“Apeiron”), the European property specialist has today announced the launch of a new student housing platform with an initial target size of £300m. In addition, Apeiron is pleased to announce its first acquisition, a 100-bed student housing asset in Stratford London for £10.35 million. The transaction offers an initial gross yield of 8.5%. Apeiron estimates its current pipeline of near term opportunities at a further £50 million.

Located on Stratford High Street and close to both Stratford and Stratford High Street stations, the asset benefits from strong transport links and its proximity to local amenities at Westfield shopping centre. The asset’s strategic location and existing layout means that there is strong potential for rental growth as well as offering further development opportunities in the medium to long term.

The building, managed by student housing specialist The Mansion Group, is let to Goldsmiths, University of London, which has two years left on its’ existing lease. This deal represents Apeiron’s first in the London student housing market and follows the € 100million acquisition of a portfolio of 837 residential and 68 commercial units within 25 residential buildings in Germany undertaken in partnership with Kauri CAB Management GmbH and a leading global Sovereign Wealth Fund announced last month.

Vojkan Brankovic, Managing Partner, Apeiron Capital commented: “The student housing market has performed well in recent years and strategically-located assets, particularly those with potential for renovation, continue to offer attractive returns for investors. The relatively opportunistic yield coupled with the potential for further rent maximisation and development will allow Apeiron Capital to employ its’ strong asset management expertise to drive returns on behalf of its investors.

“We are pleased to complete this first acquisition in our new platform and look forward to working with The Mansion Group to provide excellent accommodation for the building’s student occupiers.”
Maclay Murray & Spens LLP and JLL acted for Apeiron.

Apeiron and Kauri CAB form €300 million property joint venture with leading global Sovereign Wealth Fund

BERLIN/ LONDON/ STOCKHOLM - Apeiron Capital (“Apeiron”) and Kauri CAB Management GmbH (“KCM”), the northern European property specialists, in partnership with a leading global Sovereign Wealth Fund (together “the JV”), have today announced the formation of a new €300m joint venture partnership.

With starting equity capital of €100 million in the new joint venture, the intention of the JV is to acquire portfolios and individual property assets across Germany, initially targeting a portfolio size of €300 million (including debt).

The JV is also pleased to announce today, its first acquisition, a portfolio of 1,675 residential and 105 commercial units within 61 residential buildings in Germany for a purchase consideration of €130 million. Located in Berlin and Magdeburg, the buildings have in aggregate approximately 120,000 sqm of lettable space.

The units, mostly of the ‘Altbau’ or period style, are located in the popular districts of Berlin (70% of the portfolio) including the City Center, Reinickendorf, Tempelhof, Steglitz and Lichtenberg as well as in Magdeburg (30% of the portfolio). The seller of the ‘Zeus’ Portfolio is ZBI Zentral Boden Immobilien AG in Erlangen.

This acquisition builds on KCM’s experience in the German residential space and follows its sale of 25 buildings in Berlin announced in July 2014 in partnership with Pramerica Real Estate Investors. Apeiron is a privately held principal investment and asset management firm dedicated to real estate opportunities in the UK, Germany and the Nordic region.

Jacob Cronstedt and Vojkan Brankovic, Principals of Apeiron commented: “The returns on offer from northern European residential property make the asset class increasingly attractive to investors and we are seeing a growing number of excellent investment opportunities particularly across Germany. With the backing of a major global sovereign wealth fund we are well placed to capitalise on these going forward.”

“The acquisition announced today represents an excellent outcome for all three partners in the JV and demonstrates our partnership’s ability to effectively source and close attractive off- market deals. It is an exciting opportunity given the multiple routes for optimisation the portfolio offers. Berlin offers an attractive long-term structural demand-supply imbalance for rental housing and is one of the fastest growing capital cities in Europe.”
