Raiffeisen Real Estate Fund

Raiffeisen Real Estate Fund

 

Investment policy

The objective of Raiffeisen Real Estate Fund is to achieve maximum capital growth with assuming medium risk while operating the properties in its portfolio. The fund manager takes into consideration both the diversification of risks and potential returns while making the investment decisions. Investments are targeted primarily in Budapest and its metropolitan area, secondarily in rural cities. The bulk of the fund is invested into yield generating properties (which provides the opportunity of collecting rental fees). The fund holds real estates and liquid assets also.

We recommend this fund to an investor who…

  • is looking for a real estate investment managed by experts;
  • wants to benefit from a well-diversified portfolio of properties;
  • wants to invest on the market of commercial real estates with an amount which is much smaller than the value of the properties;
  • is looking for an asset which is not driven by the stock exchanges, so excellent for diversifying the portfolio;
  • is willing to invest a part of his portfolio for a longer time (the recommended minimal investment horizon of 3 years);
  • is willing to tolerate the high liquidity risk of the fund: in case the placed redemption orders endanger the liquidity of the fund, the unit trading could be suspended by the Asset Management Company (for maximum 1 year which can be extended by another year by the National Bank of Hungary)

Benefits of the fund

  • Diversified portfolio: commercial properties, office buildings, industrial and logistics real estates;
  • The return of the fund is driven by long term stable leases;
  • Daily asset valuation;
  • Flexible investment form: the units can be bought or redeemed on every banking day (except for the extraordinary situations)

Special risk profile:

  • Real estate markets are sometimes characterized by great price volatility;
  • Property valuation risk: underlying assets can be temporarily under or over valuated, which affects the Net Asset Value
  • Real estate utilization risk: the Fund wants to benefit from the rental fees of its properties. Rental fees and the opportunity of collecting rental fees depends on the solvency of the renters and the maintenance and operation costs
  • Suspended or paused trading: in case the placed redemption orders endanger the liquidity of the fund, the unit trading could be suspended by the Asset Management Company (for maximum 1 year which can be extended by another year by the National Bank of Hungary)
