What we do in Property and tourism

EBRD primarily invests in high-quality, commercial real estate – including hotels, offices, retail centres, logistics and mixed-use facilities – but also in the tourism industry. Through its activities, the Bank seeks to support domestic and international enterprises with a range of debt and equity instruments invested directly as well as indirectly through real estate funds. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is the single largest investor in the region overall, and has been a leading figure in prime real estate markets since its inception in 1991.

Parallel to its direct investments, the EBRD invests in real estate development and investment funds. Previously, it has participated in the region’s best-known funds, including Heitman and Europolis. Such funds differ in focus and scope, but all tend to develop and/or invest in first-rate assets, and bring liquidity to the region’s commercial real estate markets. In 2008, the EBRD invested in funds that will focus on the Western Balkans and Russia.

In line with the Bank’s new Social and Environmental Plan, the Property and Tourism team actively seeks to identify energy-saving opportunities in its projects, implementing known and accessible technologies to reduce energy use in the built environment.

EBRD financing is designed, wherever possible, to promote environmentally sustainable development and urban regeneration. This includes the reclamation and redevelopment of brownfield sites and deprived areas. The Bank undertakes a careful analysis of the environmental impact of every project it supports.
