Avelios appoints Thomas Fiebig as Managing Director
Avelios is delighted to announce the appointment of Thomas Fiebig as Managing Director of Avelios Germany GmbH.
In April 2021, Avelios expanded into the German market with the founding of Avelios Germany GmbH to establish a presence in Europe’s largest economy. Avelios Germany, which will be led by Thomas, is the second operating entity within Avelios Group and will provide investment, advisory and asset management services to investors in this large European market.
Thomas has nearly three decades of real estate investment experience and has executed over €3bn of transactions in this asset class. Thomas was formerly Managing Director of Talanx Immobilien, during which time he established a new arm of the business that delivered mezzanine finance to developers and was responsible for the global real estate and infrastructure investment side of the business. Thomas was also a Board Member of Talanx Investments.
Across his career, Thomas has also held senior roles at ING Real Estate, Union Investment and a BaFin-regulated capital management (Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft) company based in Hamburg.
Commenting on his appointment, Avelios CEO Duncan Souster said: “We are immensely excited about our expansion into Germany after sustained interest from clients to establish a permanent presence in this market. Thomas is ideally suited to lead our German business and will bring the highest standards of institutional practice to the task. Thomas’ professional experience will no doubt help to fuel growth in our business and his strong institutional investor network will help to diversify and expand our capital partner network. We are delighted to have him on the team and are looking forward to making accelerated progress in the German market”.
The expansion into Germany builds on Avelios’ recent success in the market, having closed a mezzanine finance transaction in Central Berlin during 2020. It also reflects strong origination capabilities and the team’s significant track record in the market. The Avelios Germany team will be located at Goetheplatz 1 in Frankfurt.
Avelios Germany GmbH: Avelios is an independent investment advisor and asset manager focused on European real estate, transportation and infrastructure assets. Our company philosophy is defined by our drive to preserve capital with strong downside protection—allowing for superior risk-adjusted returns to our investors and offering them multiple pathways to success.
