360-degree real estate investment management

We manage direct real estate investments from start to finish. Our comprehensive portfolio management is distinguished by five phases, in each of which investors reap rewards from specific know-how.

Real estate and sustainability

Buildings produce a significant amount of global greenhouse gas emissions. As part of our overarching ESG concept, we are actively striving to reduce the carbon footprint of our holdings through a number of pioneering programs and initiatives to achieve a “net zero” real estate portfolio.

We rely on leading real estate sustainability labels and certificates such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, Minergie, SNBS etc., and the Credit Suisse quality seal greenproperty for sustainable new build properties in Switzerland.

greenproperty was developed in 2009 and is the first comprehensive Swiss quality seal for sustainable real estate under the ESG approach. Ten years after the initial launch, a revised version was introduced in 2019. This new version reflects the future-oriented developments in the area of sustainable construction and ensures greater transparency.

In order increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions, we systematically analyze and optimize our property portfolio on the transition towards a “net zero” climate neutral real estate portfolio.
