The Otto family as investors
Even as a service provider we think and act like an investor. Because the Otto family is personally involved in many projects and partners and, thanks to its international network and strong financial power, enables us to be highly flexible, think long-term, have considerable growth opportunities and be highly reliable.
Since its foundation in 2010, the fund management company ECE Real Estate Partners has launched one open-ended and several closed ended shopping center funds that invest in existing shopping centers with a strong market position and value-add potential. In the meantime, assets under management exceed EUR 5 billion. The investor base comprises some of the world’s leading financial institutions, including international sovereign-wealth funds, pension funds, and insurance companies. The Otto family is also among the fund investors.

Not only do we have extensive expertise in the development and construction of hotels, the Otto family has also invested directly in the hotel business – holding a 25% stake since 2019 in the lean luxury hotel operator Ruby Hotels, which is successfully expanding with contemporary and high-quality hotel concepts. The combination of Ruby Hotels’ expertise as an operator and our development know-how will create attractive opportunities to further expand activities.

As a family office, asset management firm Cura Vermögensverwaltung manages the Otto family’s various real estate investments. It has held many of these investments in its portfolio for decades and thus operates as an active investor with a long-term focus. Cura is also the parent company of ECE.
