Investment in real estate

The urban population is growing. The need for living space is constantly increasing as a result. This is where the ERSTE IMMOBILIENFONDS strategy comes in. It focuses on the residential sector that’s in demand and also invests in office and commercial space.


Tangible assets “on our doorstep”

It’s all about the right mixture. The fund’s properties are not concentrated in one single location. In this regard, we clearly focus on Austria. Cities and urban areas take centre stage. The fund also makes investments in Germany (currently only in Hamburg).

There are hardly any existing properties at the right price on the property market right now (= fully completed and rented properties). This is why the fund is increasingly investing in projects.

The fund is a property fund in accordance with the Austrian Property Fund Act (ImmoInvFG) and an alternative investment fund (AIF) in accordance with the Alternative Investment Fund Manager Act (AIFMG).

How you benefit

You can participate in a property portfolio with a low capital investment – with no need to go through the stock exchange. In contrast to property shares, the price of property funds is not determined by the stock exchange. The calculated value of the fund reflects the value of the acquired properties. 

The fund allows you to invest in properties that are considered to be substantial and stable in terms of value and therefore, allows you to take advantage of their profit prospects.

Investing in real estate or real estate funds should be seen as a long-term investment. The recommended holding period is at least 3 years. 

Investing in tranches

Shares in ERSTE IMMOBILIENFONDS can only be purchased as part of a previously specified volume of capital (tranche). The tranche is already sold out. For this reason, no new share certificates are being issued at this time. Exceptions are already existing s Fonds Plans.

There is no exact date for the issue of further share certificates or information about the volume of the next tranche at this time.

Details about the tranche model and zhe new tranche can be found on the web site under “Tranche” or at your Erste Bank or Sparkasse branch.
