Munich / Madrid, October 13, 2014 – AURELIUS Group (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) (“AURELIUS”), the listed mid-market pan-European Investor focused on value creation through operational improvement, has opened an office in Madrid. This office will manage the Group’s activities across Spain and Portugal and the investment team will cooperate closely with corporate headquarters in Munich.

Donatus Albrecht, an AURELIUS Executive Board member responsible for transactions said: “The creation of AURELIUS Iberia and the hiring of Gonzalo Díaz Uriarte will intensify the Group’s activities across the highly promising Iberian market. His regional expertise will ensure we increase our activity significantly in the region and continue to grow the business across the markets of Southern Europe.”
