Originally entering Europe in 1989 and subsequently partnering with AIG as AIG/Lincoln in 1997, Lincoln provided development and entrepreneurial expertise responsible for building a dominant platform resulting in over 50 investments and more than 2.5 million sqm of space.

Lincoln will now leverage its extensive array of institutional partners to re-invest throughout Europe. The new entity will focus primarily on investment and selected development opportunities across all sectors where growth prospects and yield spreads offer attractive relative value.
