Peakside Capital Advisors AG („Peakside“) is now using the innovative software solution from QUANTREFY GmbH (QUANTREFY) for ESG optimization of the portfolio as part of the Manage-to-Green strategy.

Peakside uses the software to generate specific optimization proposals for individual assets. To this end, QUANTREFY evaluates the property data and calculates various ESG performance indicators for Peakside, such as the GRESB rating (Global Benchmark for Real Assets), the ECORE score (ESG Circle of Real Estate) or the CRREM assessment (Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor). Additionally, climate risk and tenant satisfaction analyses can also be mapped using the tool. QUINN, QUANTREFY’s digital ESG assistant, then provides targeted recommendations for action to optimize the ESG performance of Peakside’s assets. The subsequent implementation process for the recommended measures is also fully mapped: The tool suggests suitable service providers for implementation, which can be compared using the software in terms of conditions and customer ratings and commissioned directly via Peakside’s tool.

Peakside also uses QUANTREFY’s data flow management. The PropTech supports the investment manager with data migration in order to make the integration of property data easier and, above all, more resource-efficient. This also includes communication with external service providers.

Frank Schäfer, Partner at Peakside, says: “We are specialists in value-add properties in Germany and have developed a dedicated manage-to-green approach as part of our active asset management strategies. Buildings, which are often branded as ‘stranded assets’, offer the greatest leverage for improvements in the fight against climate change – and at the same time enormous potential for value appreciation in a tight market. With QUANTREFY, we have found the right tool to help us implement this strategy in an efficient and targeted manner.”

Justus Wiedemann, founder and CEO of QUANTREFY, adds: ” ESG issues are becoming increasingly important. Sustainability can only be measured in all its dimensions on the basis of continuous data analysis. Our tool also identifies the right steps towards carbon neutrality and a sustainable real estate portfolio. We are very pleased to support Peakside in optimizing their portfolio with our services.”


QUANTREFY stands for intelligent ESG optimization that goes beyond the mere collection of data. The software solution bundles the most important ESG scoring models in one system, delivers corresponding key figures per asset or portfolio and at the same time provides optimization suggestions for improving KPis.

The company, headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, was founded in April 2021 by Managing Director Justus Wiedemann. Based on his expertise in the development and implementation of ESG strategies, Wiedemann developed the idea of an automated tool that is able to recommend actions based on the available data and enable implementation. QUANTREFY was named a top 100 impact tech company by Tech for IMPACT Map, a collaboration between BUILTWORLD and PwC.
