We look forward to implementing our value creation strategy across the portfolio with our local operating partner REINO Capital and in close cooperation with existing as well as prospective tenants. We have conviction towards the Polish residential, office and logistics markets and we plan to further build-up our presence in this region, targeting cash-flowing portfolios with short to medium term value-add potential,” said Marco Denari, Member of Management, Private Real Estate Europe at Partners Group.

We are pleased that Partners Group's funds will entrust us with the joint asset management of this Polish portfolio post-closing, worth over €200 million," Radosław Swiatkowski, CEO of REINO Capital added.
