Food Retail

Satisfying essential local community needs

In the darkest days of the Covid-19 pandemic, food retailers remained open because they were crucial for the social infrastructure. Historically, properties with a focus on satisfying essential local community needs have consistently proven to be robust, even in difficult economic environments. This is true for full-service hypermarkets, discount supermarkets or local convenience stores. These providers of food and other day-to-day needs are also an indispensable “last mile component” of the supply chain towards consumers. We invest in both newly constructed and existing assets in well-established locations within Germany. 

GARBE Institutional Capital is a fully integrated real estate investment manager with excellent market access, building the bridge between institutional investors and long term sustainable property values.

As a fully integrated manager we serve our clients throughout the entire property value chain. We initiate and structure regulated property funds as well as separate accounts and create value through active management, development and refurbishment of our assets.

With our pan European real estate platform which has offices in Hamburg, Frankfurt am Main, Cologne, Amsterdam, Prague, Milan, Madrid, Paris and London, we have more than 55 years experience in developing and managing real estate.
