Grand City Properties



Investment summary

Grand City Properties (GCP) is a specialist residential real estate company investing in underperforming assets in major German urban centres. Its €4.9bn portfolio has grown at a compound rate of 85% in the past four years and its revenues have increased more than tenfold. This growth, combined with asset management and modernisation, has seen EPRA NAV reach €2.5bn in 2016, from just €47m in 2010. Although portfolio growth has slowed, GCP has substantial firepower to make acquisitions, with cash and liquid assets of €632m and an LTV of just 35%. Despite this track record, the growth potential and a dividend yield above the sector average, it trades on a discount to both forecast NAV and its sector peers.
