CSA Real Estate Germany Opening of the CSA Real Estate Germany Investment Group

Opening of the CSA Real Estate Germany Investment Group

CSA Real Estate Germany is open for subscriptions.

During the opening, zero-rated pension funds domiciled in Switzerland have the opportunity to subscribe to rights in CSA Real Estate Germany (CSA RE Germany, Swiss Security Number 23 547 751), an investment group of the Credit Suisse Investment Foundation (CSA). The CSA RE Germany investment group is focused on investments in German commercial properties. The new capital will be invested in the ongoing expansion of the real estate portfolio.

The CSA RE Germany investment group invests mainly in commercial real estate in Germany. A prime aim is to achieve targeted diversification by region, location, and usage type. Particular consideration is given to the following criteria when choosing locations: real estate market cycles, economic strength, economic forecasts, and the political, legal, and tax environment in the relevant region. The location and quality of a property are especially important, as its rental potential and therefore its long-term earning power and appreciation potential depend on those two factors.

Rationale for Investments

  • NAV-based real estate investment product offering attractive entry opportunities (without premium).
  • As Europe's biggest economy, Germany offers investors access to a stable, transparent and liquid real estate market with attractive cash flows and growth potential.
  • With commercial real estate in economically powerful and central locations in Germany, the portfolio is broadly diversified both geographically and in terms of content, and offers attractive investment returns.
