In its structure, Deutsche Wohnen SE is similar to a classic holding company. As such, it encompasses divisions such as IT, Corporate Finance, Accounting, Controlling, Human Resources, Marketing, Investor Relations, Corporate Communication and Legal/Compliance.
Residential Property Management
The management of our large residential and commercial property portfolio in German metropolitan regions and conurbations is at the heart of our business operations. This portfolio spans 165,700 units, consisting of 163,100 residential units and 2,600 commercial properties. We are constantly developing our residential and commercial properties, drawing on concepts for our customers which are both modern and liveable.
Our tenant management services are offered in on-site service points. Here, customers will find experienced contacts in neighbourhood sales and technical management and leasing.
The sales business pools both strategic and operational sales activities. By selling specific residential units, we selectively release capital, thereby strengthening our internal financing capacity. As the market environment is currently positive, it is also possible to make opportunistic disposals to further optimise the quality of our portfolio.
Nursing and Assisted Living
Deutsche Wohnen is a leading provider of high-quality housing for older people. Strategic acquisitions have allowed the company to significantly expand its nursing portfolio in the metropolitan areas of Germany in recent years. The Nursing and Assisted Living segment now comprises 89 nursing properties with over 12,000 places. Deutsche Wohnen owns 88 of these facilities. 37 of the facilities are run by KATHARINENHOF Seniorenwohn- und Pflegeanlage Betriebs-GmbH and Pflegen und Wohnen Hamburg GmbH, companies in which Deutsche Wohnen holds a share. The other 52 nursing homes are owned by Deutsche Wohnen and are let to well-known operators on a long-term basis.
Beyond these business areas of activity, we also enter into strategic investments and offer property-related services via subsidiaries. This helps us strengthen our contact with our customers and ensure service quality. This applies primarily to energy supply, as well as technical facility management and multimedia. We also wish to expand the Nursing and Assisted Living division.
