Florian Böschen joined IMAP in Germany as a Director in March 2017 as part of an expansion in the Real Estate team in IMAP in Germany. He is responsible for the structuring and implementation of national and international buy and sell mandates, as well as financing consulting mandates in the real estate sector.
Prior to joining IMAP, Florian worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers - most recently as a Senior Manager - in Frankfurt/Main, Vienna and Munich in the Transaction Services and M&A areas. Since 2007, he has been advising companies in the financial sector (banks, insurance companies, fund, asset management and private equity companies) and the real estate sector (project developers, real estate companies, property developers) on real estate and corporate transactions.
IMAP has extensive experience in managing real estate transactions; focusing on supporting clients in structuring and executing transactions (purchase and sale) and advising them on financing (equity, mezzanine and debt procurement). The IMAP team provides support for real estate transactions (e. g. the sale of commercial real estate and portfolios) as well as for corporate transactions in the construction and real estate sectors (e. g. succession planning, MBOs and growth).
Most recently, the M&A team led by Peter Koch, the Managing Director, advised on the raising of capital for commercial real estate projects in Darmstadt and Munich. "The capital requirement of medium-sized project developers who want to undertake commercial real estate projects remains high," said Peter Koch, also a member of the IMAP Executive Board. "Despite the continuing boom in the real estate investment and mortgage markets, there is still a gap between potential investors who cannot find sufficient profitable investments and project developers who are unable to implement their investment ideas due to a lack of capital. We can help bridge this gap."
Last weekend, IMAP colleagues from all over the world were due to congregate in Denver, Colorado, for a conference planned for many months, where deals, learning, and friendships would be developed and shaped. Even a month ago when the difficult decision was made to cancel the event, none of us could have foreseen the speed and scale of events that have occurred since.
