Land Securities Trillium has formed a partnership with German property company Lindner Group to increase its exposure to the German public private partnership sector.

Land Securities Trillium said today it would use Dusseldorf-based Lindner Group to act as its advisor to ‘help identify potential public private partnership and private finance initiative investment opportunities.’

Trillium said the German public private partnership market currently has approximately £15bn of projects ‘in procurement.’ The outsourcing arm of Land Securities said the German government’s plans to have 15% of all future public spending for infrastructure be through public private partnership, equal to €5bn (£3.95bn) a year, was attractive to its business.

Ian Ellis, chief executive of Land Securities Trillium, said: ‘The German market is one where we believe there are many opportunities and we are confident that working with the Lindner Group and their extensive networks will help us tap into the market.’
