CORESTATE launches European value-add investment program

CORESTATE Capital Holding S.A. (CORESTATE), a fully integrated investment manager and co-investor based in Luxembourg, is launching a new investment program for its Club Deal clients, which will invest in value-add retail, office and residential buildings in mid-sized European cities.

The diversified multi-club-deal investment program will target private investors, family offices and institutional investors. CORESTATE is taking an active asset management approach with a ‘manage-to-core’ strategy and will invest in undermanaged properties that offer value creation potential through renting, modernizing or repositioning these properties. The focus will be on the German market, but acquisitions may well also include individual properties in Spain, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK. The investment horizon is five years, target IRR is 16%. The program with a target volume of EUR 100-150 million will be structured as a Luxembourg-domiciled closed-end Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF). CORESTATE will ensure alignment of interest by co-investing in the program.

Thomas Landschreiber, Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer of CORESTATE: “We have identified not only more investor interest in the value-add segment but also a host of asset opportunities for a manage-to-core strategy in mid-sized European cities. A lot of properties need refurbishment and modernization in order to meet changing customer and tenant needs. The European value-add program will benefit from these developments.”

Several seed assets are already in the pipeline. They are characterized by an existing high cash flow in combination with vacancies. These types of assets enable CORESTATE to improve its overall performance by using its active asset management approach. The closing of the fund is expected later this year. By then, the program will encompass secured assets as well as a stable project pipeline.

“With the European value-add program, we will continue our strong Club Deal track record of delivering double-digit returns and seizing on short-term investment opportunities,” adds Boris Pauli, Managing Director Client Relations, based in CORESTATE’s office in Zurich, Switzerland. “The short maturity, transparent structure and low minimum investment support the attractive investment case for multi-family offices and private banks in particular.” The program was launched specifically to meet the wishes of existing clients, which include the fund structure and the possibility to book the investment directly via their bank depot.
