With the managing founding partners Frank Dupuis, Oliver Lenhardt and Thilo von Stechow, Deutsche Asset One GmbH forms a platform for the management of residential property in Germany, representing all necessary competences of owner representation for residential property for institutional investors as well as family offices.
Dupuis GmbH & Co. Asset-Management KG, located in Berlin, has been a market leader in the field of investment and asset management of residential property for more than ten years; the company is forming Deutsche Asset One GmbH and is appointing Thilo von Stechow as part of the management team and one of the partners.
As asset manager for residential property in Germany for institutional investors and family offices, Deutsche Asset One GmbH, with its partners Frank Dupuis, Oliver Lenhardt and Thilo von Stechow, forms a professional investment and management platform for residential property, thereby consolidating the track record of DUPUIS – with its more than fifteen years of successful activities – into a nationally active asset manager.
With a pool of highly qualified personalities from the property and finance sectors (the three managing partners contribute more than 60 years of professional activity in the residential property sector), Deutsche Asset One GmbH will take charge of owner representation for the expansion and ongoing management of institutional residential investment portfolios.
Quote by Frank Dupuis: “Owing to the increasing demand from institutional investors for an increase in the allocation of German residential property to their portfolios, we have decided to round off our services in the German-speaking region by taking Thilo von Stechow on board and by the new formation of Deutsche Asset One GmbH. As a sustainably grown company which continues to be managed by its owners and which does not offer any of its own investment products, we are available as experienced partners to institutional investors in residential property.”
Thilo von Stechow (MRICS) has been active in the residential property sector for over 20 years. After more than six years with Arthur Andersen and Ernst & Young Real Estate GmbH, Mr von Stechow became Divisional Manager and authorised signatory at GSW Immobilien GmbH with responsibility for portfolio, asset and transaction management, as well as numerous special strategic tasks, for example as Chairman of the Management Board of GSW Betreuungsgesellschaft für Wohnungs- und Gewerbebau mbH (BWG).
