The development of real estate funds requires broad knowledge and experience of real estate. Bouwfonds REIM serves its clients by offering them not only recognisable product lines in traditional sectors, but also innovative products in new segments.
We develop products within the broad meaning of real estate, which we have defined on the basis of investment opportunities, client demand and risk analysis. We look for opportunities in the market that match our clients’ strategies. To do this, our independent analysts track relevant developments in regions in ‘transparent’ countries. Interesting products in regions and sectors are identified by taking a structured top-down approach. We find these products not only in residential real estate, offices, industrial space and retail, but also in other property that can be operated over a long period and that will generate both a stable flow of income and value growth over time. This means that Bouwfonds REIM also offers investors opportunities in underground and aboveground infrastructure, agricultural land and building lots, and energy facilities.
Bottom-up analyses of the markets are compiled at our own offices in Hoevelaken, Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris, as well as with the help of our strategic joint venture partners’ local branches. These analyses result in new ideas about and insights into the markets in which we invest on behalf of our clients. Innovative ideas can then be quickly converted into concrete products for our clients. Sustainability in the real estate market is an important focal point.
