PRESS RELEASE

YIELCO closes "Infrastruktur I" exceeding its target volume with 310 million EUR and extends the Executive Board to include direct investment expertise.

Munich, 24 January 2017 - YIELCO Investments AG, a specialized investor in alternative investments, announces the successful final closing for its first infrastructure fund of funds with a capitalization of approx. 310 million EUR - thus above the original hard cap.

YIELCO Investments AG, a financial services provider specializing in investment solutions for infrastructure, private debt and private equity (special situations), had the final closing of its multi-manager program "YIELCO Infrastruktur I" on December 31, 2016 with a committed capital of approx. 310 million EUR.

The group of investors comprises a number of well-known German insurance companies and pension funds, which through their commitment now have access to a globally diversified infrastructure portfolio.

Uwe Fleischhauer, member of the Executive Board of YIELCO Investments AG and Head of Infrastructure, is convinced: "The rather conservative risk profile of YIELCO Infrastruktur I is the preferred investment strategy for many institutional investors. Our diversified program is already at an early stage in a well-balanced state with a positive return - the addition of secondaries has also been an important contribution to the early success of this product."

The investment strategy of the fund of funds focuses on market segments that generate sustainable attractive returns. This is particularly true for the small and mid-market, which does not experience the price-intensive competition of larger core transactions. YIELCO's focus is on experienced fund managers with operating expertise who proactively implement value-enhancing strategies at their portfolio companies. At the same time, the investments are highly diversified globally across sectors and strategies, as well as across vintage years in order to avoid cluster risks.

As the need for private investment in infrastructure continues to grow globally, investors will find further interesting opportunities in this market segment to diversify their existing portfolios and increase their profitability.

Accordingly, the successor product "YIELCO Infrastruktur II" will be launched in the second quarter of 2017 with the same strategic priorities. In this context, the YIELCO team has been further strengthened:

On 1 November 2016, Dieter Weiss was appointed member of the Executive Board of YIELCO Investments AG. Dieter Weiss was previously the CFO of TransnetBW GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnBW Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg AG, and strengthens as co-head Yielco's infrastructure team with his direct investment expertise.

Dieter Weiss: "The increasing popularity with German investors shows that YIELCO, with its experienced and constantly growing team, its focused product program and not least its attractive fee structure, guarantees the highest alignment of interests between investors and managers and assures that the needs and requirements of institutional investors are well understood and addressed."

Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv

Die Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. weist aktuell eine Effektivverzinsung von ca. 14 % auf. Da es sich hier quasi um eine Immobilien-Anleihe handelt, ist das Anleiherisiko überschaubar. Insgesamt verfügt die German Real Estate-Gruppe über 6 Objekte, 24 Bestands- und 22 Handelsobjekte, womit eine Kombination aus stetigen Einnahmen und attraktiven Entwicklerrenditen erreicht wird. Wir stufen die Anleihe als stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv ein.
