GE is unwinding its financial companies, and as a consequence, is selling off its real estate assets. Blackstone and Wells Fargo have reportedly agreed to buy GE Capital’s real estate assets for $23bn. This is the largest deal of its kind since Blackstone acquired Equity Office Properties Trust in 2007.
