CS Real Estate Fund LivingPlus

CS REF LivingPlus

Credit Suisse Real Estate Fund LivingPlus (CS REF LivingPlus, sec. no. 3106932), which was launched in 2007, is a future-oriented real estate fund whose investment strategy focuses on the demographic development and the progressive ageing of the Swiss population. The fund invests primarily in senior housing, modern forms of living with integrated services, and healthcare facilities at attractive locations in Switzerland. It provides institutional and private investors with access to a diversified, high-quality real estate portfolio. The focus is on residential real estate that is fully accessible to those with impaired mobility and provides corresponding services for tenants. The fund is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. The fund’s currency is the Swiss franc. The fund takes direct ownership of the properties; unit holders are therefore not liable for Swiss income or wealth tax on the portion of the fund’s assets that is invested in real estate.
