Invest in carbon-neutral and in-demand properties

We specialise in identifying attractive markets and investment opportunities early on and exploiting them profitably. The Spanish economy is currently growing at a much faster pace than the average level in Europe. At the same time, the supply of modern living space in prime locations is limited. Due to the high and steadily increasing demand for residential space, the Spanish Real Estate sector currently offers an interesting investment environment.

Metropolitan regions are seeing a high demand for living space: with relatively low purchase prices compared to European standards. Thanks to our sister company AQ Acentor, we have direct access to the local market and can offer investors profitable opportunities that promise above-average sales expectations and good profit prospects. As compliance with ESG criteria plays a major role for us, we make all properties carbon-neutral over a period of two years and support the respective buyers and tenants in continuously extending the carbon offsetting after this period. We also make sure that our target investments meet extensive location criteria: such as a very well developed infrastructure and excellent local transport connections.

Aquila Group is currently developing and building almost 6,800 flats in four of Spain's largest cities, of which around 2,500 units are classified as affordable housing for socially disadvantaged families. In total, our real estate team has over 300 years of investment experience and has conducted a transaction volume of over EUR 1.7 billion since 2014. An efficient industry network and a specialised team on site enable efficient asset management and offer institutional investors access to a high-quality investment pipeline.
