“I am proud of the transformation that has taken place into an even more active and integrated manager- investor on the Belgian real estate market. The way in which the resilience of the portfolio and the ‘hands on’ management were demonstrated in this year of crisis is testimony to this. All this while maintaining an extremely solid balance sheet structure and an excellent liquidity position, which offers Wereldhave Belgium every chance in the future to respond to opportunities that will undoubtedly arise in its sector after the current health crisis. In saying goodbye, I would like to specifically emphasise my gratitude to the employees with whom I had the honour and pleasure of writing this joint story”. – Kasper Deforche
