In total, Palmira managed 50 logistics and corporate properties at the end of last year, which belong to the six funds launched by the company as well as part of the Maximus portfolio sold in January 2020.

Together with the successor fund to UIC 1, launched in December 2020, and the Palmira European Core Logistics Fund, Palmira is continuing its expansion in Europe and plans to open an office in Paris this year. The Investment Manager, who currently has a team of 42 staff, will then be represented in nine locations. Acquisitions with total volume of at least EUR 600 million are planned in 2021.
