Klépierre is a French real estate investment trust (REIT) and Europe’s second-biggest publicly traded mall operator.[2]

It was founded in 1990.[3] It focuses on the ownership, management and development of shopping centers across Continental Europe.[4]

The company is controlled with a 28.9% by Simon Property Group and 21.9% by BNP Paribas and is a member of the CAC Next 20 index of French companies.

The company’s largest shareholders are Simon Property Group, which owns 20.3% of the shares, and APG (13.1%), a Netherlands-based pension fund.[5] Klepierre shares are listed on Euronext Paris and joined the CAC 40 stock market index of French listed companies in December 2015.[6]

In July 2014, Klépierre offered to buy Dutch competitor Corio NV.[7] The deal was completed on March 31, 2015. Through this transaction Klépierre acquired a 7.0 billion euro shopping center portfolio with strategic positions in the Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Turkey.[8]
