The opening of the "Real Estate Switzerland Retirement and Healthcare" investment group was very successful. The target volume of up to CHF 200 million was oversubscribed more than three times. A total of around 100 pension funds took part in the Opening.
The opening is being carried out with staggered capital calls and serves to acquire a promising acquisition pipeline with associated new-build projects worth over CHF 200 million. The properties to be acquired are characterised by a good geographical spread and a balanced mix of apartments for seniors and care centres. The latter are managed by operators with a solid and long-standing track record.
Stephan Thaler, Managing Director of the Swiss Life Investment Foundation, is very pleased: "The success of the re-opening is another strong vote of confidence by our investors in the Swiss Life Investment Foundation. Retirement and healthcare properties have excellent growth prospects and have established themselves as a sensible complement to existing real estate investments due to their diversification potential and low sensitivity to the economic cycle."
