Mitiska REIM – Our past year in numbers…


Over the past 12 months, we have realised significant divestments of portfolios and assets from earlier funds as we continue fundraising and deploying capital for our latest fund, MEREP 3.

Here’s our past year in numbers…


€500 million in divestments

Successful exits of portfolios and assets in Romania, Belgium, Portugal and France have realized over €500 million and resulted in excellent returns being delivered to investors.


1 fund fully divested

During that past year, all assets in our first flagship fund, FRI, were divested, delivering investors a net IRR of 14% and a net MOIC of 1.9x.


1 new fund launched

In December last year, Mitiska REIM launched a new fund with a gross asset value of €280 million, First Retail Partners (FRP), backed by Partners Group and focusing on core+ retail park assets.


€193 million capital raised

Fundraising for the MEREP 3 fund continues towards our target of €300 million and capital has already been deployed targeting the outstanding buying opportunities we are currently seeing in convenience real estate, spanning food-anchored retail parks, multi-let light industrial, self storage and urban logistics.


9 new assets acquired or opened

Our investment program has remained strong, with the acquisition of 2 new convenience real estate projects and the opening of 7 new development projects during the past 12 months, representing a total gross leasable area (GLA) of 116,000 sqm.


13 projects under development

At present, we have 13 development or value-add extension projects underway which are scheduled to open in 2024-25, representing a mix of retail parks, multi-let light industrial, self storage and urban logistics projects, spread across 6 European countries.


3 awards won

Over the past year, Mitiska REIM has scooped up 3 industry awards, winning Best Retail Park at the BLSC Excellence Awards for Malinas retail park, and Retail Project of the Year in both the Baltic Real Estate Awards and CEE Retail Awards in partnership with Karuzela Holding for new retail park developments in Świebodzin and Biala Podlaska.

100% coverage of energy consumption data

As part of our sustainability initiatives, significant progress was made on data coverage within standing assets, achieving 100% coverage of energy consumption data at the end of last year.
