Sarasin IE Sustainable Global Real Estate Equity Fund
A global equity fund for the ‘concerned’ investor, with exposure to prime real estate around the world
The Sarasin IE Sustainable Global Real Estate Equity fund is a compelling option for the ‘concerned’ investor, as it sets a higher threshold on environmental, social and governance issues when making investment decisions.
As one of the first European investors to develop a global listed real estate product, we have renowned expertise in this area.
Real estate securities provide a cost and tax-efficient way to access high-quality commercial real estate while offering liquidity too. These securities are often the only way to obtain exposure to properties tin some of the best locations around the world.
Real estate securities also offer investors diversification benefits within a portfolio of equities and bonds.
We invest across three key pillars: core, value add and opportunistic.
The core part of the portfolio (typically 40-50%) gives exposure to, in our opinion, the best real estate assets around the world managed by the best management teams.
The value-add part (40-50%) gives exposure to the long-term themes that we believe will drive above industry growth rates.
The opportunistic part (typically 0-20%) comprise of companies which have stock-specific issues that we believe are being – or are capable of being – resolved.
