Paris, 17 May 2022 :After successfully marketing the first Eurazeo funds open to individual investors, Eurazeo has decided to launch the European Real Estate II ELTIF1 fund. Whilst the unlisted real-estate market has typically been reserved for institutional investors, EERE II ELTIF2 facilitates the investment opportunity for individual investors.
The fund’s strategy is at the crossroad of private equity and real estate. We carry out high-value added real-estate transactions in Europe and provide funding to companies that own and operate their own real estate assets. Our approach enables businesses to further improve and develop their assets.
This fund offers individual investors a distinctive investment strategy in the real-estate sector, along with diversification in a growing asset class, that is known for demonstrating low correlation with financial markets and delivering superior returns in the long run.
This fund is part of a €1 billion investment program where the Group and institutional investors directly invest. EERE II will take a share of each investment made by the Group’s Real Assets team. All investments include non-financial criteria based on Eurazeo’s O+ strategy.
The European Real Estate II fund has been awarded the ELTIF (European Long-Term Investment Fund) label, which means that it can be distributed to non-professional investors throughout Europe, as well as to institutional investors.
Agathe Bubbe, Manager Private Wealth Solutions, said:
“Buoyed by the success of our various investment vehicles through which we make our institutional strategies available to individual investors, today we are launching European Real Estate II ELTIF. Our activities in European real assets, which help companies boost their growth and performance, represent an
excellent opportunity for individual investors. With this new program, Eurazeo takes a step further to make its investment strategies accessible to individual investors, and provide clients with solutions intended to diversify their
investments in ways that support the real economy.”
Renaud Haberkorn, Managing Partner Real Assets, said:
“The launch of the European Real Estate II ELTIF fund is an important step for Eurazeo’s Real Assets team. Our successful investments have delivered strong returns for institutional investors, and this new fund for individual investors will channel the savings of French people towards providing long-term funding for companies through direct investments in the French and European real-estate sector. We see the fund as an opportunity to create value and distinguish
ourselves in the eyes of individual investors.”
