Pension funds for German doctors join forces in development deal

first_imgThree German Versorgungswerke have acquired the €218m real estate project “Stadthöfe” in Hamburg.The doctors’ fund Ärzteversorgung Niedersachsen (€7bn), the Ärzteversorgung Sachsen-Anhalt (€1.4bn) and the Ärzteversorgung Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (€1bn) have jointly acquired the project development, which Quantum Immobilien is scheduled to finish by 2017.The Ärzteversorgung Niedersachsen is administering the other two funds, but they all have individual investment portfolios in which the real estate exposure was between 10%, for the Ärzteversorgung Niedersachsen, and 7%, for the fund for doctors in the province of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, prior to the deal.This is yet another club deal involving Versorgungswerke, with the Hofstatt deal in November or the Amprion deal in 2011 being the largest examples. The Stadthöfe project will see retail spaces, residential areas, a boutique hotel, offices and restaurants being built on a 100,000sqm area.German law firm Luther, which advised the Versorgungswerke on the deal, said it was a “major challenge” for the firm itself and the “most complex deal” for the pension funds to date.They compared the planned building complex to the Viktualienmarkt area in Munich.German Versorgungswerke, which are the first-pillar funds for certain professions such as doctors, notaries, lawyers and vets, have to find new investment opportunities in a difficult economic environment, as their contributions for the most part far exceed their pensions payouts.last_img read more

MP Bob Zimmer concerned over intended purpose of Bill C-71

first_imgZimmer says he will have to wait and see where this bill goes but feels that C-71 is aimed at the wrong people.“We’ll see where it goes. It’s just that I think C-71 is just, again, aimed at the wrong people.”Bill C-71 is now awaiting Royal Assent and approval by the Govern General before it becomes law. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Federal Liberal Government has passed its firearm legislation, Bill C-71, through the Senate on Tuesday night.According to the Government, the Bill, which oversees background checks and gun sale records, aims to reduce and deal with gun violence across the Country.Local Conservative MP, Bob Zimmer, says while he supports background checks for gun owners, he has concerns that this bill will not be used for its intended purpose for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals but instead targets law-abiding owners.- Advertisement -“It’s got its challenges and the whole C-71 is a document that was supposed to be written to combat gangs and guns in our cities but gangs isn’t even mentioned in the legislation and it reestablishes a back door registry, a front door registry and makes many changes to add red tape to lawful firearm owners.”According to Zimmer, the Liberal Government treats all gun owners as criminals and does not seem to recognize the fact that many gun owners are law-abiding citizens.“Lawful firearm owners are some of the most law-abiding citizens we have in our country. It’s like the Liberal side doesn’t understand that and treats anybody with a firearm as though they are a criminal.”Advertisementlast_img read more
