REAFINA AG is managed by its CEO, Björn Schwabe.
Björn Schwabe is the President of the REAFINA Holding Group. In 2012, Mr Schwabe founded REAFINA AG as the CEO, aiming to create a holding structure that would encapsulate the entire portfolio of the property sector. For his previous position as Managing Director and Partner of W3O GmbH since 2009 (now REA–Management), Mr. Schwabe supervised the property portfolio of a family office.
Today, the range of services offered by REAFINA AG comprises a variety of joint ventures alongside a portfolio consisting of shareholdings in project developers and an engineering firm, which focusses on the establishment of new property and conversion measures in existing property.
Mr. Schwabe also took the chair of REABIZ Investment Capital in 2012. Customised investments in German property and the structuring of mezzanine loans, second-lien loans from insurance companies and individual mandates tailored to the needs of investors constitute the core competencies of this company.
Following the now completed stage of establishing a company portfolio, REAFINA Holding focuses on the conceptualisation, implementation and subsequent management of property investments with a concentration both on highly complex project developments and the vastly differentiated sector of existing real estate with growth potential. After his vocational education as an export merchant, Mr Schwabe completed a degree at the Faculty of Law and Economics at the University of Hamburg. He then assumed a position in an international partnership, later known as Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, in Berlin and London. Mr Schwabe ultimately switched to the banking sector.
