More than forty billion euro of assets and over ten million square meters of real estate under management. First mover and main servicer of Unlikely To Pay bank loans, the leader in Non-Performing Loan securitization with the GACS guarantee.
Based in the iconic headquarters in Milan’s Via Valtellina, the Prelios Group is the gateway to Italian real estate and the leading player in alternative asset management, distressed loan management and specialized property services.
The Group Chairman is Fabrizio Palenzona, the Chief Executive Officer is Riccardo Serrini. Luigi Aiello is Chief of Corporate & Business Development, Sergio Cavallino Chief Financial Officer and Fabio Panzeri Chief Operating Officer.
The Prelios Group's services cover the full spectrum of requirements in the real estate life cycle: asset management, investment management, due diligence, real estate advisory, valuation of individual properties and real estate portfolios, building, project & property management, real estate brokerage, investment funds and distressed asset management.
In each of these areas, the Group offers consolidated know-how and expert skills through specialized Business Units working to top professional standards. Thanks to the quality of its internal resources – a workforce of more than 560 people – and an extensive network of external partners of the highest caliber, the Prelios Group provides a complete range of services and skills to manage property portfolios and distressed loans, and is the only Italian player with the capabilities to act in every phase of the Italian real estate and economic cycle.
In the area of distressed loan management, Prelios works with banks and investors. It was the first Italian group to move into the new field of UTPs, a servicing activity – whose goal is to help companies in difficulty return to a solid footing – directly linked to the Italian real economy and employment. As the first mover, Prelios manages more than 15% of bank UTP exposures.
Similarly, following the introduction, in 2016, of the Italian State GACS guarantee for senior and investment grade securities, the Group services the largest number of NPL securitization transactions. In this area, Prelios has arranged sale transactions to meet demand from players – typically foreign investors – with extremely high economic potential. Through its ties with international investors, the Group is also a frontline partner on many large-scale initiatives, including major real estate and urban redevelopment projects, the purchase and renovation of iconic buildings and historic districts in Italian cities and metropolitan areas.
Prelios is also a leading player in the management of real estate investments, both directly through funds and SICAFs and indirectly through credit funds. Prelios SGR – the Group’s management company – manages assets worth 5.9 billion euro with 36 funds, including 2 umbrella funds, 2 SICAFs and 3 separate accounts. Prelios SGR promotes and manages alternative investment funds and offers advisory services to help leading Italian and international investors develop investment strategies closely aligned with the principles of environmental sustainability, good governance, ethical and social responsibility.
