The Residential Fund has a clearly defined strategy of optimisation based on the three pillars of quality, sustainability and affordability. The Fund firmly believes that the residential sector will continue to offer good long-term investment opportunities in core regions with strong economic and demographic fundamentals. The Fund's plan is to optimise the portfolio through targeted acquisitions of high-quality assets and the divestment of assets that no longer meet the Fund's strategic requirements. Furthermore, the optimisation of the Fund’s portfolio covers a whole range of aspects, from improving the overall quality of the assets, making them more sustainable, increasing the number of affordable homes, maintaining the high occupancy rate, improving tenant satisfaction and introducing innovations in the Fund's homes and in the services the Fund provides for its tenants.
Bouwinvest believes that it can only generate long-term stable financial returns for its investors if it takes into acccount societal impact in the decisions it takes. The Fund’s focus is on the city of the future and it aims to create real value for life by investing for the long term in a responsible manner. The Fund wants to invest in thriving urban and suburban areas that are attractive now and will continue to be so in the future. Liveable cities are inclusive places, where people can live, work, recreate and spend their time. The Fund wants its portfolio to reflect that inclusiveness, which is why it is looking to increase the number of affordable, mid-rental segment homes in its portfolio. In addition, the Fund aims to reduce the environmental impact of its portfolio, striving for a net-zero carbon, nearly energy-neutral and climate-resilient Paris Proof portfolio before 2045.
