Successful opening of the Real Estate Switzerland and Commercial Real Estate Switzerland investment
groups and launch of the Infrastructure Global investment groups

The opening of the Real Estate Switzerland and Commercial Real Estate Switzerland investment groups attracted a lot of interest from investors and was oversubscribed several times over. The two newly launched Infrastructure Global investment groups (in EUR and currency-hedged in CHF) also met with a very pleasing response, with around CHF 200 million in capital commitments from investors. These investment groups are managed with a focus on renewable energy investments while also taking ESG factors into account. Moreover, they have been classified under the new BVV 2 “infrastructure investments” category.

Purchase of the Glatt shopping centre

The ownership transfer of the Glatt centre was completed on 1 October 2020. With turnover in the region of CHF 600 million and retail space of 53 000 square metres, the Glatt centre in Wallisellen, Zurich, is one of the largest and most popular shopping centres in Switzerland, as reflected in its surface area productivity, which is by some way the highest among Swiss shopping centres and a waiting list of prospective tenants. Swiss Life takes over the Glatt centre from the Federation of Migros Cooperatives as part of its third-party asset management. The new Glatt centre co-owner community consists of five established investment vehicles managed by Swiss Life Asset Managers.
The Swiss Life Investment Foundation has the "Real Estate Switzerland" and "Commercial Real Estate Switzerland" investment groups with a share of around two thirds of the Glatt centre. This gives investors access to a unique investment property with an attractive risk-return ratio.
