The history of our Company.

Our company was founded in 2006 by Jörg Lindner and Kai Richter as Lindner Investment Management, LIM for short. The two industry insiders and top experts with more than 30 years of experience had a clear vision from the outset: to become one of the best and most profitable companies in the field of hotel and

holiday properties investment. In 2010, following thorough preparations, our company invested in the Biggesee Resort in the Sauerland region. This was followed by further investments in Ibiza and Tenerife as well as in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Since its foundation, our company has undergone sustainable and

continuous growth. A business with 5 employees gradually became a thriving company which today employs 34 staff members and continues its course of growth. In August 2016 LIM was renamed 12.18. Investment Management and relocated to Kö-Bogen in Düsseldorf's city centre. We are now on the right track for further growth.
