Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance welcomes its first foreign investor as a client. A Swiss pension fund has issued a mandate to Achmea Dutch Health Care Property Fund (ADHCPF) via CBRE Global Investment Partners.
“A few months ago we took the step towards selectively opening up our investment funds to institutional investors outside the Netherlands,” CEO Arthur van der Wal of Syntrus Achmea explains. “This decision was of course taken in consultation with our participants. The Swiss client’s participation is the first tangible result of this change in strategy. The change creates a broader basis for the healthcare real estate fund, and that’s good news for all the participants.”
The Pensioenfonds voor Verloskundigen (pension fund for midwives) and parent company Achmea invested in the ADHCPF earlier this year. The fund holds a well-diversified portfolio with a current size of 455 million euros (including pipeline). The portfolio comprises lifetime homes, private and intramural residential care, primary care centres and clinics. The fund has been named the ‘World’s Most Sustainable Health Care Property Fund’ by GRESB and invests on behalf of one foreign and 17 Dutch institutional investors.
