Meaningful real estate
We believe that investing in real estate should create value for each party in every step of the process, down to the inhabitants of the properties themselves. We’re committed to making real estate asset management a force for good.
The assets we acquire undergo a strict review and must be developed by reputable general contractors and meet new government and investor building standards. We also favour properties that have (or will) achieve Swiss labels (SNBS, Minergie®, and LEA®) that help us meet voluntary responsibility objectives.
