Asset Management

Detecting weaknesses and finding solutions

Since many years, the hotel industry undergoes a deep structural change with the consequence that many mid-sized companies have increasing difficulties to compete on the market. But also the performance of national and international hotel chains often does not meet the expectations of capital providers regarding to cash flows, yields and the ability to fulfill the debt service. Hence, many lease contracts that appear safe cannot be fulfilled in the long-run.

As part of our asset management, HOTOUR offers different services which can be freely combined aiming at providing customized solutions and quick assistance.
