Active asset management is an important part of our Residential Investments department. We focus on occupancy rates, debtor balances and a good gross-net trajectory. However, the value, return and updating of the portfolio are also high on the agenda.
Our employees are responsible at tactical level for the performance of (partial) portfolios and strive for continuous improvement by making the right choices at complex level. This is achieved on the one hand through renovations, the optimal setting of rents and the right timing of sales, but also by offering hospitality services in the larger buildings.
Making the existing housing stock more sustainable is a major challenge in the Netherlands. Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance is leading the industry in improving the energy labels in managed residential portfolios.
In recent years, we have upgraded existing homes to the class A label at various locations in the Netherlands. Tenants benefit from this by having a more comfortable home and a much lower energy bill. Institutional investors, in turn, have the prospect of improved value development for their real estate.
