First investment for the Adventum QUARTUM real estate fund
Adventum International, a Malta based boutique investment fund manager, has acquired the 18,000 sqm landmark and multi-award-winning office building Poznan Financial Center from Peakside Capital Advisors. The 16-storey, A-class office tower is fully leased to tenants such as Santander Bank, Medicover and Sonalake.
The transaction represents a milestone for both parties: It marks the final divestment for a value-add separate account managed successfully by Peakside. For Adventum, the acquisition is the first investment in the CEE region under its Adventum QUARTUM real estate fund.
Christopher Smith, heading the transaction with Peakside, commented that the sale is another successful transaction for Peakside in Poland and opens the company up to further investment activities in the country. “We will reinvest the freed capital in new opportunities in logistics and other asset classes. After successfully repositioning the asset over the past three years, we are glad to have found in Adventum a highly professional partner with a clear vision for the property.”
Andras Marton, director at Adventum International commented: “Our goal as a Mid-Cap fund manager is to further expand in the CEE region, where we have unparalleled experience in Poland, Hungary, Czechia and Romania. Under the Adventum QUARTUM fund which we recently launched we aim to deploy 250 million euro in the next 12 months in office and retail properties with special focus on Poland. We are glad to have undertaken the first such transaction with Peakside, a renowned fund manager.”
The Poznan Financial Center is located in the Stare Miasto district. Just on the outskirts of the historic city centre, it offers easy access to local amenities such as restaurants, cafés, shops or parks. Several bus and tram stations are in the immediate vicinity; the Poznan Glowny rail station is just over one kilometre away. Completed in 2001, the building was last refurbished between 2015 and 2018.
