Revetas Capital Advisors appoints Markus Leininger to investment committee
Revetas Capital Advisors, a real estate investment adviser focused on restructuring opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe, has appointed Markus Leininger to its investment committee.
Based in Guernsey with offices in Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava and London, Revetas recently announced a strategic relationship with Patron Capital Partners, a real estate asset management firm, which will enable it to invest up to EUR100m in distressed real estate opportunities within the CEE region.
Revetas is raising a EUR250m fund to invest in CEE distressed real estate assets.
Leininger joins Revetas with immediate effect. In addition to serving on the investment committee, Leininger will be closely involved in Revetas’ deal negotiations, banking relationships and refinancing activities across the CEE region.
Leininger has 15 years’ experience in CEE real estate financing and was most recently head of Central and Eastern Europe at EuroHypo, a commercial real estate financing specialist and subsidiary of Commerzbank, the German banking giant. He started his career at Rheinhyp in Frankfurt (a Commerzbank subsidiary) where he built the bank’s US investor base for investment in CEE, and subsequently became head of Eastern Europe Operations.
Eric Assimakopoulos, managing director of Revetas, says: “We are delighted Markus has joined Revetas. His significant experience – a combination of banking, real estate knowledge and deal structuring - together with his excellent relationships with investors and banks in our target markets further reinforces our strong team.”
Leininger adds: “I believe the Revetas platform is unique in its approach because it addresses the needs of banks as well as investors to support current market conditions in CEE. Eric has been a well respected operator in the market for almost ten years and I am pleased to join and support him and the experienced management team.”
