We profile the firm to explore the secrets behind its success so far. In a world of zero interest rate policy, for an individual, an institutional investor like an insurance group, pension fund or an endowment it is getting more and more difficult to create an attractive investment perfor- mance. For many of them bonds and equities may not be sufficient to reach their individual goals. Therefore, the discussion about an increase of the alternative investment portfolio is ongoing in this sectors. For many other investors adding alternatives is part of their overall invest- ment strategy of diversification and they simply want to add alternative asset classes to their portfolio. Others may have different reasons to in- vest in this sector but all of them need to decide which of the alternative asset classes can help to reach their goals. Real estate and infrastructure have been popular asset classes in the couple of last years in the alternative investment space. Investors who are not able or willing to invest directly in real estate or infrastructure or want to have better diversification may better choose “Private Equity Real Estate (PERE) or Private Equity Infrastructure” which ideally combines the benefits of real estate/infrastructure with a private equity approach or may choose a fund of funds which offers the best diversifi- cation available. Deutsche Finance Funds a Mandates offer investors direct and/or highly diversified access to institutional PERE and infrastructure assets and strategies to delivering long-time superior investment performance, broad diversification, excellent manager allocation and ongoing risk management capabilities. Every target investment is handpicked, with a thorough due diligence process and serious negotiations to have a fully aligned investment manager. Deutsche Finance has access to the best in class managers in the PERE and infrastructure business.
