Enver Büyükarslan to Handle the Operating Activities of Deutsche Investment

Hamburg, 3 September 2020 – Deutsche Investment, a German AIFM company, repositions itself for its further growth trajectory: Enver Büyükarslan, as the main shareholder, is taking charge of the operating activities of the AIF management company and, starting on 1 September 2020, has taken over the head of the units Business Development, Distribution, Acquisitions and Sales, as well as Property Development. As of 31 August 2020, Enver Büyükarslan resigned his office as chairman of the supervisory board. He is succeeded by Dr. Klaus-Jürgen Scherr, who has been a member of the supervisory body since 2018 and has now been elected as its new chairman. Newly appointed to the supervisory board were Dr. Hermann Stapenhorst, who will serve as deputy chairman, and Prof. Thomas Reich.

Enver Büyükarslan has been the main shareholder of Deutsche Investment since 2016, and has definitively influenced the positive business performance of the AIF management company with his visionary mindset. He has been active in the real estate industry for 25 years and has demonstrable expertise in the asset, transaction and property management of real estate representing the use types residential and office.

The members of the new supervisory board are thoroughly familiar with the regulatory as well as the strategic challenges to which AIF management companies are exposed, and perfectly understand the interests of institutional investors. Dr. Klaus-Jürgen Scherr has served as chairman on the supervisory boards of several savings banks in Thuringia and Bavaria since 1991. As of 31 August 2020, he stepped down as chairman of the executive board of the Sparkasse Kulmbach-Kronach savings bank, and retired after 29 years. Dr. Hermann Stapenhorst (MRICS) is a lawyer and notary by profession. For many years he was a partner in a large German-international law firm in leading positions. He also serves as president of Versorgungswerk der Rechtsanwälte Berlin, the pension scheme of the legal profession in Berlin. Prof. Thomas Reich is a full-time notary public in Bavaria. He also worked as a lawyer in an international law firm for several years and - before becoming a full-time notary - as a university lecturer in Würzburg in the fields of tax law, private commercial law and accounting, as well as a tax consultant.

“Taking personal care of our investors and the continuous development of our product line-up have priority for Deutsche Investment,” said Enver Büyükarslan, the main shareholder of Deutsche Investment. “It is only through our direct connections to the market that we succeeded over the past years to expand the regional and sectoral competencies in the best interest of our investors. The successful expansion of our investment spectrum with our recent entry into the food retail asset class, which meets with great interest among investors, is just one case in point.”

“Deutsche Investment is a dynamically growing company that has undergone an impressive evolution in recent years,” added Dr. Klaus-Jürgen Scherr, new chairman of the supervisory board. “Together with my new fellow board members, I bring long-term experience to the supervisory board for the purpose of advising Deutsche Investment and to support the company in its business objectives in the best interest of its investors.”
