News Financing Solutions with Potential
Logistics real estate – buildings serving the fields of transport, transshipment, and storage of goods – is a key element in the infrastructure of the fast-growing logistics market.
This growth trend is likely to continue in the future, with demand for logistics real estate increasing. Global Real Estate at Credit Suisse Asset Management has anticipated this development, and can offer comprehensive solutions from financing to realization.
The Credit Suisse Real Estate Fund LogisticsPlus, founded in September 2014, invests in logistics buildings and logistics-related facilities. The portfolio consists primarily of logistics and goods distribution centers such as storage depots, transshipment halls, and high-bay warehouses situated on Switzerland’s most critical transport and logistics axes. These include, among others, logistics and commercial properties in Rupperswil, Aargau; as well as logistics centers in Derendingen, Solothurn; and Bülach, Zurich.
We are looking for opportunities to invest more in logistics and logistics-related real estate. As a long-term-oriented investor, we are very interested in sellers who wish to rent for the long term. Our focus is on properties and projects throughout Switzerland with an investment volume starting at CHF 10 m.
All businesses and projects are unique. Based on this fact, we have developed financing models that can be tailored to suit the needs of our partners. We will be happy to explain the advantages and disadvantages of various solutions, with clearly defined responsibilities.
Sale-and-rent-back solutions, for instance, are appropriate for owners who want to sell their properties and just rent the buildings needed for their business. This simple concept has great potential for logistics properties.
