General Information

CSA Real Estate Germany*

CSA RE Germany

The CSA  Real Estate Germany (CSA RE Germany, Swiss security number 23 547 751), an investment group of the Credit Suisse Investment Foundation, invests mainly in commercial real estate in Germany, seeking as a priority to achieve a reasonable distribution by region, location and usage type. When choosing a site, it gives careful consideration in particular to the criteria: real estate market cycles, economic strength, economic forecasts, and the political, legal, and tax environment in the relevant region. Great importance is attached to the location and quality of the property, as its rental potential and therefore its long-term earning power and appreciation potential depend on those two factors. The investment focus is on investments in core and core plus properties in Germany.

* Only pension funds domiciled in Switzerland that are not subject to tax are permitted as direct investors.
