Kingstone Investment Management
  • Prof. Dr. Kerstin Hennig and Philipp Wehle join the committee
  • New competences include Social Impact Investing and Wealth Management
  • Benedikt Gabor as new deputy to board chairman, Dr. Eckart John von Freyend

Munich, 20 December 2023 – Munich-based KINGSTONE Real Estate (KINGSTONE) has gained two new, prominent experts for its advisory board, which was established in early 2019.

Prof. Dr. Kerstin Hennig, professor of Real Estate Management at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, complements the five-member committee with her extensive academic background. The real estate economist’s area of expertise includes the future topic of Social Impact Investing. Hennig has also been assigned as the Head for the establishment of the Frankfurt School Real Estate Institute. The institute is supported by more than 19 firms from the real estate and financial sector.

Philipp Wehle will strengthen our advisory board with his longstanding international expertise in Wealth Management. During his time at Credit Suisse, he served as chairman in charge of the International Wealth Management division, and held roles as Chief Financial Officer and as the head of Client Segment Management in global asset management. A major focus of his work was the expansion of its international wealth management business. In doing so, he placed strong emphasis on ensuring that offerings and organisation were consistently aligned with the needs of its various customer segments.

“We are delighted to have gained two so highly-skilled personalities from the finance and real estate industry for our advisory board”, Dr. Eckart John von Freyend, who has acted as board chairman since day one, says “The ability to call on extensive and diversified expertise from our committee is of inestimable importance for an innovative, owner-managed company such as KINGSTONE, especially in times as challenging as those we are currently experiencing.”

Dr. Eckart John von Freyend himself is one of the most remarkable representatives of the real estate sector in Germany. Among other roles, he spent many years as CEO of IVG Immobilien AG, at the time the largest listed real estate company in Germany. He presently holds the office of honorary president of the ZIA Zentraler Immobilien Ausschuss e.V. as well for the Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft e.V.

Advisory board member, Benedikt Gabor, was recently appointed as deputy to John von Freyend. As the Head of the Real Estate division for Nordrheinische Ärzteversorgung (NÄV, North Rhenish Pension Fund for Physicians), an organisation under the umbrella of Ärztekammer Nordrhein, he serves the board in matters related to German institutional investors.

Andreas von Buttlar, another founding member of the advisory board, remains in the committee. He has worked for many years in leading positions at renowned family offices and asset management companies. Andreas von Buttlar brings broad investment expertise and an outstanding network in this segment.

Dr. Tim Schomberg, Managing Partner at KINGSTONE, gives a very positive summary of the advisory board’s record over the past five years. “We value our interaction with such high-calibre professionals, and are convinced that their input will enable us to steer KINGSTONE strategically and more sustainably through diverse market phases. This is exactly what we want to do together in the future.”
