We use clear structures for sound investments.

Real I.S. AG is a wholly owned strategic investment of Bayerische Landesbank (BayernLB). Responsibilities within the company are strictly segregated in accordance with the German banking principle: this means that the Investment, Investors and Corporate Management divisions are independent right up to the Board of Management. Investment decisions are only taken on a unanimous basis by the Board of Management. Upon the introduction of the KAGB*, Real I.S. repositioned itself as a fully regulated company. Both Real I.S. AG and Real I.S. Investment GmbH are licensed as capital management companies (KVG), which means that the organizational units, processes and services are monitored by BaFin**. The result for investors: attractive products managed by a reputable provider comparable to a securities company.
