Value begins with knowledge

From the building permit process to the completed lease contract, from the city center concept to the shopping mall — we offer an enormous depth of services and interdisciplinary experience across all types of operation to make retail property a success.

The retail market is in transformation. E-commerce, demographic changes, a turning point in mobility: these are just a few of the many buzzwords showing the huge repositioning pressure now on the retail sector and on retail properties themselves. The experts at IPH have advised owners on the (re)positioning and future-proofing of their retail properties for over 25 years.

What makes us special is the unique level of knowledge across our group of companies comprising BBE Handelsberatung, elaboratum and IPH. The key to our successful implementation is our neutrality and independence as a pure service provider. Our mission statement remains unchanged: to use our knowledge to create new values. This philosophy has made us the leading retail property specialist for both private and institutional clients.
