Supply is rising, but is not sufficient
Although the supply of student accommodation is increasing, it is still far from meeting demand, which is why the shortage of accommodation offers attractive investment opportunities. While many institutional investors are only just discovering this potential, Global Real Estate has already been making targeted investments in the education sector and particularly in residential real estate for students for ten years. The properties held by Global Real Estate in the education sector include Belvédère in Leysin and Europe in Montreux.
One special segment comprises international students in Switzerland, including in the field of hospitality management, where Swiss training establishments have an outstanding reputation worldwide. Global Real Estate is therefore working with Swiss Education Group (SEG), among other organizations, which is one of the ten largest operators of residence halls in Switzerland.
