Swiss Life Real Estate Funds (LUX) S.A., SICAV-SIF – ESG European Industrial & Logistics

With the launch of this fund for industrial and logistics real estate in the European region, Swiss Life Asset Managers has added yet another attractive investment opportunity to its product portfolio. As the fund’s property manager, BEOS will for the first time be working with its international parent company in the regulated fund business outside Germany. The new fund is designed specifically for institutional investors looking to invest in a market segment with attractive growth prospects throughout Europe.

The fund will acquire a diversified and high-quality portfolio of industrial and logistics properties with a geographic focus on Germany and France, supplemented by properties in Benelux, Great Britain and Switzerland. The fund is aiming for a well-balanced portfolio of industrial and logistics properties.

By investing in a portfolio that combines these two asset classes, investors will benefit from highly diversified rental income streams, the inherent flexibility of corporate real estate and from the strong earnings and healthy demand for logistics properties. The fund’s strategic focus is geared towards a unique, actively managed defensive strategy and long-term growth, especially as the industrial and logistics segments are set to be among the biggest winners from megatrends such as eCommerce, urban logistics, Industry 4.0 and deglobalisation over the next few years and decades.
