DeA Capital Real Estate currently announces the launch of its first REITs Fund, the “DeA Global REITs” which is a compartment to the Quaestio Solutions Fund a FCPUCITS fund managed in collaboration with Quaestio Capital sgr S.p.A..
Within two weeks after the admission in Germany, Luxembourg, Italy and Switzerland, 20 million euros could already be collected from institutional investors. It is the first fund to invest exclusively in REITs and is structured like a real estate fund. The investment focus is on Europe, on prospering market segments such as logistics, light industrial and data center with a core-plus risk profile. The minimum subscription amount is 1 million euros.
“The good response to the newly launched fund is an indication that our approach of combining many years of equity expertise with sound real estate competence is convincing,” says Dr. Wolfgang Speckhahn, LL.M. MRICS, Managing Partner DeA Capital Real Estate Germany GmbH.
The fund invests exclusively in REITs listed in a member state of the OECD. In a very determined, multi-stage investment process and on the basis of a strict ESG due diligence, REITs with a sustainable and at the same time long-term income distribution are finally filtered out.
The focus on real estate portfolios and returns is the special characteristic of the “Quaestio Solutions Funds – DeA Global REITs ” and the real estate quota capability is at the same time also the central distinguishing feature from all other REITs funds.
“The portfolio composition is based on the best-in-class approach. With a geographically and sectorally diversified portfolio, we are confident that we will be able to pay out a dividend yield of around 5 percent (gross) to investors this year,” adds Dr. Thorsten Schilling, Director Portfolio Management DeA Capital Real Estate Germany GmbH. With its sustainable approach, the fund, which was launched in Luxembourg, qualifies as a “light green” product in accordance with Article 8 of the Disclosure Regulation. The “Quaestio Solutions Funds – DeA Global REITs” is aiming for a total volume of around 400 million euros.
