WestInvest ImmoValue

WestInvest ImmoValue is a mutual fund with an investment focus on European office properties.

 

WestInvest ImmoValue is a portfolio of select real estate sites in Europe’s metropolitan areas providing a good yield. Approximately 40% of the properties are located in Germany, with the remaining 60% in other European countries. The target investments are high-quality office properties in established locations. The fund concept allows for properties to be financed, in part, through borrowing to increase returns.
 
The strategy of WestInvest ImmoValue is also reaffirmed by the very high marks awarded for fund quality in 2019 by the German rating agency SCOPE. The aaAIF rating for WestInvest ImmoValue puts it in first place as the highest-ranked open real estate fund for institutional investors on the market.

 

WestInvest TargetSelect series

WestInvest TargetSelect is a series of single-sector funds that invest solely in retail, hotel and logistics properties, respectively.

 

WestInvest TargetSelect Hotel invests in hotel real estate in cities with a balanced mix of business clients and tourists. Hotel investments feature stable and sustainable cash flows generally for at least 15 years due to very long lease agreements. This helps smooth over and compensate for market fluctuations.

 


WestInvest TargetSelect Logistics
invests in logistics real estate at major traffic nodes in economically strong regions. Given their shorter useful life, logistics properties have flat or even declining asset values as compared to other real estate sectors, but, by way of compensation, they feature higher cash flows. The long-term return on investment of individual logistics properties has been significantly higher than for office space.

 


 
WestInvest TargetSelect Shopping invests in retail real estate within Europe. There are also plans to go global in the future. We focus upon locations catering to the wider geographic region, and the main decision criteria are central location and high purchasing power. Given the wide variety of retail concepts, the fund concentrates on three types of property: top inner city locations, shopping centres and speciality stores.

 

 

Domus-Deutschland-Fonds. Nr. 2

Domus-Deutschland-Fonds. Nr. 2 is a real estate fund that serves as a basic real estate investment for institutional investors.

 

The successor product to Domus-Deutschland Fonds, which is already fully placed, it draws the maximum benefit for investors from Germany’s economic strength. The fund uses diversification to exploit market opportunities for office, retail, logistics and hotel real estate in Germany and combines a stable earnings outlook with limited correlation with other asset classes.

 

It aims to raise capital of at least EUR 375 million. The fund management team will use the capital to create a portfolio of 15 to 20 properties featuring broad diversification in terms of both sector and region. As with the predecessor fund, the investment strategy focuses first of all on core real estate, i.e. high-quality buildings in prime locations with long-term leases and tenants with strong credit ratings, and secondly on core+ real estate, as well as a small proportion of value-add real estate offering potential for increases in value through active tenant and asset management. This latter category includes buildings that offer development potential due to vacancy levels or lower quality. In addition, investors who opt for this fund also benefit from systematic liquidity management and comprehensive and transparent reporting.
