In 2009, Mitiska REIM was founded by Mitiska as its real estate investment management subsidiary, and an expansion of Mitiska’s real estate activities.
Mitiska has a rich history, spanning nearly 30 years of private equity investments in the retail universe. Founded in 1990 as an investment fund in primarily retail activities, Mitiska has invested in over 30 retailers and conducted successful IPOs of Brantano (1990), Innogenetics (1996) and Retail Estates (1998).
Mitiska REIM initiated a first investment fund in 2012, First Retail International (FRI), which closed at €75 million equity.
In September 2019, Mitiska REIM successfully closed a second fund, First Retail International 2 (FRI 2) at €263 million. Both FRI and FRI 2 target grocery-anchored retail parks.
In May 2021, Mitiska REIM closed the Mitiska European Real Estate Partners Light Industrial fund (MEREP LI) with €35 million equity to invest in multi-let light industrial and urban logistics.
Mitiska REIM is currently fundraising for its third flagship fund, Mitiska European Real Estate Partners 3 (MEREP 3), with a target of €300m+. This new fund continues our focus on the accelerating opportunity we see in convenience real estate across Europe, targeting grocery-anchored retail parks, last-mile urban logistics and multi-let light industrial opportunities.
Investors in these funds comprise a high quality and diverse base including pension funds, insurance companies, financial institutions, family offices and high net worth individuals.
Mitiska REIM acts as fund advisor to FRI and FRI 2 and as fund manager to MEREP LI and MEREP 3.
