DekaBank has arranged a loan to the Korean investor Samsung Securities & KB Securities, advised by the La Française Group, for the purchase of a logistics property in Mönchengladbach. DekaBank is the sole underwriter of the loan of EUR 119.3 million, which has a term of five years.
The modern logistics facility in the west of Mönchengladbach (Rheindalen) with a total area of 150,000 sqm was completed in July 2019. On three floors, the property has logistics and storage space as well as offices, seminar and canteen facilities. The property includes a multi-storey car park with more than 1,000 parking spaces and 180 trailer spaces. The logistics centre is fully and long-term leased to Amazon.
Amar Latif, who heads DekaBank’s German origination platform, said: "With the successful cooperation with La Française, DekaBank was once again able to illustrate its expertise to underwrite large tickets if secured against core real estate in Germany.”

Together with its subsidiaries it forms Deka Group, which has total customer assets of around EUR 306 billion (as at 30/09/2019) and around 4.7 million securities accounts, making it one of the largest securities services providers and real estate asset managers in Germany.
