We caught up with Christina Ofschonka, Managing Director and Head of Core Funds at AEW, in her office in Frankfurt’s 31-storey Eurotheum building. AEW’s pan-European open-ended fund EUROCORE made its first acquisition in the emerging European life sciences sector with the purchase of Sydmarken 5, a fully let asset in the Medicon Valley of Copenhagen in March 2021.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your background. Where did you work prior to AEW?

I started working on the buy-side (that is, as an investor) at IVG Immobilien AG. My next job, as a real estate portfolio manager for a life assurance company called Alte Leipziger Lebensversicherung aG, was also on the buy-side doing for example real estate transactions and preparing manager selection. In 2016 I moved over to AEW and the sell-side. AEW is a multi-cultural, multi-lingual firm with multiple offices, and this facilitates very rich discussions about sectors and individual assets, which I really enjoy.
