Baloise Swiss Property Fund: planned capital increase for the acquisition of a property portfolio
Media releases Baloise Swiss Property Fund: planned capital increase for the acquisition of a property portfolio
Basel, June 18, 2021. The fund management company is examining the purchase of a property portfolio with a market value of around CHF 185.2 million for the Baloise Swiss Property Fund. In order to finance this transaction, the fund management company intends to carry out a capital increase and use external capital.

The Baloise Swiss Property Fund, a contractual investment fund that falls into the ‘real estate fund’ category for qualified investors pursuant to section 10 (3) and (3ter) of the Swiss Collective Investment Schemes Act (CISA), was successfully launched on 1 October 2018. Since its inception, the real estate fund has been developed on an ongoing basis. As at 31 March 2021, the fund comprised 56 properties with a total market value of CHF 618.5 million. 

In order to further promote the growth of the Baloise Swiss Property Fund, the fund management company intends to purchase 17 properties with an aggregate value of CHF 185.2 million from Baloise Insurance Ltd and Baloise Life Ltd for the fund. The transaction was approved by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) on 9 June 2021 in accordance with section 63 (4) CISA in conjunction with section 32a CISO. 

Plans for the financing of this property portfolio acquisition involve the issuance of new fund units and the use of external capital in August/September 2021. The acquisition of the portfolio provides an opportunity for the investors of the Baloise Swiss Property Fund to benefit from broader diversification. It comprises a total of 17 core/core plus properties across Switzerland. The properties are situated in high-quality locations and offer excellent stability in terms of earnings and value.
