To support international development, the group has opened several foreign offices. Investments and asset management are hence carried out by local market experts. 24% of total real estate assets are managed on behalf of foreign investors (excluding France).

In 2010, La Française Group created a pan-European real estate platform with a strong local presence in Paris, London, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich. Its aim is both to source and manage quality assets in strategic locations and hence to capture, in the interest of investors, geographical diversification opportunities.

The European real estate market is our playing yield. Our success lies in our ability to create close ties between foreign investors and local markets, and to seek out quality assets. We apply rigorous standards in due diligence and take a long-term approach.

A diversified portfolio of assets tailored to the needs of our tenants

With more than 1,900 assets, 10% of which are located in Europe, outside of France, La Française is active across all market segments, and currently has a strong presence in the office sector. In 2021, the group closed 45 acquisitions totalling 2.2 billion euros, of which 69% were offices.

To protect the value of its real estate portfolio, the group regularly and strategically opens up to other sectors. In this respect, La Française was a pioneer in the creation of Groupements Fonciers Viticoles. Our ambitions for diversification are currently focused on segments with a positive social impact, such as health care, as well as residential, managed residences (students and seniors) and last-mile logistics. Geographically, La Française has always favoured the core countries in Europe. The Group will continue to invest in capital cities but will not lose sight of regional markets, where the proximity of the asset to public transport is key.

La Française Real Estate Managers actiely manages its portfolios in order to address new user habits and requirements. To do so the asset manager has a three-pronged approach based on: SUSTAINABILITY, FLEXIBILITY/SERVICES and LOCATION.
 

In 2022, La Française Real Estate Managers created and launched a new services offer designed to suit tenant’s business requirements and needs for flexibility: Wellcome by La Francaise. The aim of the new service is to facilitate and enrich the tenant's user experience while optimising rental conditions: new innovative lease options and an exclusive benefits programme with “à la carte” services, negotiated with partners of La Française Real Estate Managers. Wellcome by La Française is operational for twelve assets and will be extended to the asset manager’s European office real estate portfolio..

Innovation at the service of our investors

For its retail investor client base, the objective is to simplify and democratise access to collective real estate investment vehicles, by making them  more flexible and creating an open line of communication with the end investor.  

Two examples are Moniwan, an online distribution platform of investment solutions that integrates a 100% digital subscription process and which is dedicated to retail investors, and Agil'Immo, a new innovative and flexible service launched in 2021.

Moniwan is a La Française Group brand and the first BtoC distribution platform to offer a new user experience with a 100% digital subscription process. In addition to the simplified access to a variety of investment vehicles , Moniwan offers innovative services and tailor-made tools specifically suited to neophyte investors.
