Frankfurt-based KanAm Grund Group is comprised of three companies. In addition to the Asset Management Company KanAm Grund Real Estate Asset Management GmbH & Co. KG it also encompasses two investment companies respectively under the supervision of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht – BaFin): KanAm Grund Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH for private investors and KanAm Grund Institutional Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH for institutional investors.

Established in October 2000, the KanAm Grund Group has generated a transaction volume of over 31 billion USD in real estate since its inception. Staff in Frankfurt am Main and in its international offices in Paris, Luxembourg and Atlanta have together gained many years of experience in the field of real estate investments. Over the past 17 years, the investment focus has been on high-quality properties in major international cities such as Paris, London, Washington, D.C. and Toronto. The KanAm Grund Group benefits in this context from its global network spanning strategically important locations. In addition, the independence of the KanAm Grund Group means it enjoys a special position which enables it to pursue an investment strategy in the best interest of investors. International institutional investors also increasingly take advantage of this and engage the assistance of the KanAm Grund Group as a fund, portfolio and asset manager to invest and administer their assets in German, European and American properties.
