Allianz Real Estate once again recognized as European Lender of the Year for 2021

Munich / Paris / London, 03/01/2022

For the sixth year in succession, the industry publication Real Estate Capital (REC) Europe has recognized Allianz Real Estate as ‘Alternative Lender of the Year in Europe’ for the firm’s record-breaking last twelve months. Allianz Real Estate also collected the ‘Alternative Lender of the Year for Germany’ award.


Nominations in each category are whittled down to a shortlist by REC Europe; the winner is decided by peers and partners across the industry in a public vote. While 2021 was another challenging period against the backdrop of the ongoing pandemic, Allianz Real Estate’s European Debt team was able to deliver its highest annual volume of new loan production (EUR 2.2 billion), strengthening its 12-country, pan-European footprint.

Allianz Real Estate’s European debt program reached EUR 11.6 billion assets under management (AUM) by the end of 2021. In addition, the firm continued to invest on behalf of its Luxembourg-regulated debt fund, PAREC, which has now deployed over EUR 6 billion since its inception in 2018 – a figure which also includes almost EUR 1 billion of commitments from third-party clients investing alongside Allianz.
