Real estate funds

What are real estate funds?

Real estate funds, as indicated by their name, are special shares funds investing in good-quality real estate, either directly or via real estate companies. Minority parts of their portfolios are also invested in bond instruments and money market instruments ensuring the fund liquidity. Investors have the opportunity to use advantages resulting from the ownership of good-quality real estate without being liable personally for obligations arising out of the operation of the real estate. They participate in various segments of the real estate market – offices, shopping centres, logistic complexes, residential real estate, hotels, etc. – with various development cycles and thus with the possibility to optimize the total yield by choosing correct investment strategy. In combination with the growth of the real estate value, they can achieve attractive yield, comparable with more risky types of investment, in particular in the long-term horizon time. Real estate funds are best for investors who do not want to or cannot own real estate directly. The funds are classified into the category of the so-called alternative investments. As the yields of real estate funds do not depend on the development of stock and bond markets directly, they should be used as a supplement to the investment portfolio with a view to the increase of the yield potential and distribution of market risks.

How do real estate funds work?

The goal of real estate funds is stable valuation of money invested in commercial real estate by the fund participants. The main part of the fund yield consists of income from real estate leasing. The income combined with active administration of real estate and growth of its market price can lead to very interesting yields. Real estate funds invest most money (up to 80%) in tangible and visible assets that are easy to value, i.e. in specific real estate. To ensure the payout of buying participants, the fund holds a part of its money in financial assets that can become liquid fast – money market instruments and bonds.
