Goodman European Partnership (GEP or Partnership) (legal entity: Goodman European Logistics Fund, FCP-FIS) is a perpetual life unlisted property investment vehicle which provides institutional investors with stable income returns driven from investments in logistics assets.
The Partnership was launched in December 2006 with a stated investment strategy to invest in high quality logistics/industrial properties in recognised and emerging warehouse, distribution and logistics locations with access to major transport and infrastructure, located in the European Union (excluding the UK and Greece), Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.
In order to achieve the objectives and strategy of the Partnership, GEP will:
- Continue to actively manage the properties in the Portfolio to maintain GEP’s high level of quality and operational performance, and to achieve return targets
- Continue to acquire investment properties which enhance the Portfolio’s diversity and improve risk adjusted returns
- Maintain limited exposure to land holdings and development activity, focused primarily on value added expansion opportunities at existing properties
Today, GEP is one of the largest unlisted logistics funds in Europe with a track record of delivering partners stable income returns. The €2.9 billion GEP portfolio of 114 prime pan-European logistics assets is well diversified in terms of geography, asset granularity and tenant exposure.
GEP is managed by the Goodman Group, a leading international owner, developer and manager of industrial properties, with assets under management of approximately €24.7 billion as at 31 March 2017. The Goodman Group has over 1100 employees, of which 182 are based in Goodman’s 13 European offices.
