International investments for institutional investors

Investing in international real estate

As an institutional investor, you want a real estate portfolio that matches your risk profile. A portfolio where you are in control. a.s.r. real estate’s tailored real estate portfolio fits the bill. We manage international real estate investments for a.s.r.

Benefit from economies of scale and a.s.r.’s expertise

As an investor and investment manager, a.s.r. is a significant player in the market. You benefit from this. We have a large, unique and high-quality network. And as part of an insurance company, we are aware of the rules and regulations governing pension funds and insurance companies.

A tailor-made real estate portfolio

How do we operate? After assessing your requirements and needs, we select and monitor investments for your real estate portfolio. We work in close collaboration to develop a tailor-made property portfolio that best suits your strategy and risk profile.

As a client, you will work with your own dedicated contact person from our a.s.r. real estate team. We provide you with clear and transparent reports, which allow you to make well-informed investment decisions.

Your guidelines and policies come first

In selecting and managing portfolios, a.s.r. real estate prioritises your guidelines and policies. In doing so, we act independently of other products managed by a.s.r. and a.s.r. real estate.

Sustainable portfolio and returns

We select portfolios that meet your sustainability requirements with respect to ESG and relevant laws and regulations, such as SFDR. We believe that a responsible investment policy contributes to the sustainable development of society and to sustainable investment returns. That is why we proactively target sustainable real estate investments.

Selecting and monitoring European real estate investments

For institutional investors, we select and monitor the following:

  • Non-listed real estate in Europe
  • Listed real estate in Europe
  • Direct real estate in The Netherlands
  • a.s.r. real estate has an AIFM license (license number15001789) from the Netherlands Authority for the Finanical Markets (AFM) to manage (individual) funds. This license also includes the requirements for MiFID II, which stipulates that we are competent to provide investment services.

  • With the Sustainable Finance Action Plan the European Commission wants to encourage the financial sector to invest more in activities that are sustainable and have a longer-term focus.

    One of the European regulations resulting from the action plan is the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). It aims to improve the provision of information on sustainable investments within the financial sector.

    For example: The institutional investor a.s.r. invests in financial products that promotes environmental characteristics within the meaning of article 8 sub 1 of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector (SFDR). This quideline is implemented in the acquistions and dispositions by a.s.r. real estate, acting as advisor to a.s.r. Whilst a.s.r. real estate will undertake reasonable efforts to achieve the strategic objectives as set forth above, no guarantee can be given that the strategic objectives can be realized. Due to various risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from the strategic objectives set forth above.

    All material investments/divestments recommend to clients need a positive advice the Investment Committee of a.s.r. real estate, containing the statutory board of a.s.r. real estate and managing directors of its business lines. In the sound governance of a.s.r., independent analysis is secured by Legal-, Tax-, Compliance- and Risk officers. Sustainability aspects of investments/divestments are assessed as part of the decision by the Investment Committee. Above a certain threshold value as described in th a.s.r. governance, investment/divestment proposals will also be submitted to the Investment Committee of a.s.r. for a positive advice. The final approval of investments / disinvestments is according the governace of the clients.
