Definition real estate investment funds

Open real estate funds and real estate investment funds pursuant to the Austrian Real Estate Investment Fund Act (ImmoInvFG) have been permitted in Austria since 1 September 2003. The primary objective of the ImmoInvFG is to protect investors. To this end, the law focuses especially on aspects of security, monitoring and publication requirements.

An open real estate fund is comparable to an investment fund, but a real estate fund invests in real estate. The value of the shares is not determined by the market forces on the stock exchange, but is calculated by the custodian bank on the basis of the rental revenues, the assessed values of the properties, and on the basis of the liquid assets in the fund in accordance with the ImmoInvFG. Real estate funds are managed by a real estate investment company.
