NAS Invest Group has appointed Oliver Zimper as chief investment officer (CIO) as of 1 October 2018. He will be responsible for the Investment & Asset Management business divisions.
At the same time, managing partner Nikolai Dëus-von Homeyer has assumed the newly created role of chief operating officer (COO) and will control the business divisions corporate development, operations and finance.
In their joint roles as co-CEOs, the two will look after the future development of NAS Invest Group. A capital increase in the group holding that was subscribed by Zimper makes them partners of equal shares, together with the Weber family.
As part of the new structure, NAS Invest will expand its investment focus to include core properties in Germany’s metropolises.
Zimper brings long-term expertise in the German and European real estate industry to the role. Prior to his transfer to NAS, he was in charge of the Transactions and Asset Management divisions as managing director of RFR Group in Germany. In his prior position as CIO of TRIUVA (formerly IVG Institutional Funds), Zimper was responsible for assets worth more than €12bn and made a name for himself with club deals such as “Silberturm,” “Prime Portfolio” or “Gallileo” in Frankfurt.
