Aegila makes debut investment with acquisition of Unilever global HQ

Aeglia Unilever HQ

Aegila Capital Management has acquired the global headquarters of multinational consumer goods giant Unilever in Rotterdam for €86.5m (£76.2m) in the first of series of planned acquisitions across Europe.

The transaction marks the debut real estate investment by Aegila, and the firm said it has lined up a $1bn pipeline of real estate deals across Europe and the UK focused on schemes which offer stable income from high-quality tenants and long-term value-creation potential.

The acquisition of Unilever’s offices comes two months after the Anglo-Dutch company picked Rotterdam over London as its sole headquarters. The company said the move would simplify its structure and claimed the decision to choose Rotterdam was not related to Brexit.
