ESG European thematic income and growth strategy

  • The focus is on key European countries as well as smaller established markets (The Nordics, Benelux, Southern Europe, Ireland, Austria).

ESG European industrial and logistics strategy 

  •  We invest in a distribution-oriented portfolio with industrial and logistics properties.
  • The focus is on real estate investments in Germany, France, the UK, Switzerland and the Benelux countries.
  • By combining small-scale industrial properties with large-scale logistics properties, we achieve broad market coverage with above-average returns and below-average earnings volatility. 
  • The strategy has a defensive orientation, which institutional investors appreciate in the current market environment.
  • As industrial and logistics properties will benefit from various megatrends in the coming years, we anticipate significant growth potential.

ESG European healthcare strategy

  • Swiss Life Asset Managers invests in healthcare properties and exploits the growing demand for nursing homes due to demographic change (higher life expectancy).
  • Our goal is stable returns through indexed long-term leases with experienced operators.
  • As the strategy is based less on economic than on demographic developments, it is more resilient to changes in the market.
  • We diversify the portfolio among European countries, operators and sub-sectors. The focus is on France and Germany.

European hotel strategy

European retail strategy 

  • Swiss Life Asset Managers invests in retail properties in stable European economies.
  • As the supply of real estate in shopping areas of major cities is becoming increasingly limited, this investment has a defensive bias.
  • We are diversifying our retail real estate strategy by combining northern and southern regions.
