The Bouwinvest Residential Fund focuses on properties in the liberalised rental sector, where there is constant demand due to population growth and continuing urbanisation. Institutional investors can count on stable returns combined with societal impact. The Residential Fund takes a long-term approach to investment, with a growth strategy based on quality, affordability and sustainability.
Quality: the right housing for the right target group
To ensure a high occupancy rate, Bouwinvest Residential Fund properties must meet the wishes of both current and future tenants. That is why we invest in the Netherlands’ economically stronger regions, where demand for housing is highest. The fund focuses on the Holland Metropole (Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague, Rotterdam and Eindhoven) and the three big cities in the east of the country – Arnhem, Nijmegen and Zwolle. We have also developed specific tenant profiles, based on our research into different life cycles. This means we know who our tenants and potential tenants are, where they come from and what sort of home they want to live in. In turn, we can offer tenants a home appropriate to their needs and ensure a high occupancy rate.
Affordability: investing in inclusive areas
The Residential Fund contributes to solving housing needs by investing in mid-market rentals for families, small households, young professionals and first-time tenants. Our housing is located in affordable, attractive and inclusive cities - the cities where people will want to live and work in the future. This strategy means our investments retain their value and we can combine the needs of society with the financial interests of our clients.
Sustainability: durable buildings keep their value better
The Residential Fund invests in sustainable new-build and in making our current portfolio more durable. This creates a win-win situation, because our property makes an attractive investment while contributing to the need to develop a more sustainable society in general. We aim to ensure our portfolio is almost entirely energy neutral by 2045. In recognition of our efforts, in 2019 the fund was awarded a four-star GRESB sustainability certificate.
