Investment Policy

Credit Suisse Real Estate Fund Global (CS REF Global, security no. 13 985 167), which was launched in 2011 and had total fund assets of CHF 354.9 million as of December 31, 2014, is the first Swiss real estate fund that invests exclusively in international property and is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. The fund is currently invested in ten properties in the following seven countries: US, Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Japan, Chile, and Australia. The focus is on countries that offer political stability, legal certainty, and a liquid, transparent, real estate market. The fund follows a core/core plus strategy. This means that high-quality properties are purchased in prime locations in economic and political centers in Europe (excluding Switzerland), Asia-Pacific and the Americas. The properties in the portfolio include the Princes Exchange office complex in Leeds (UK), as well as the Post Oak Boulevard 777 business premises in Houston (US). Foreign currency risks are largely hedged against the Swiss franc.
