Bouwinvest is one of the largest Dutch investment managers specialised in real estate with total assets under management of € 7.5 billion.
Internationally, Bouwinvest manages a mandate for bpfBOUW (the Dutch pension fund for construction workers). These investments are indirect via listed and non-listed real estate funds, joint ventures and club deals in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region.
In the Netherlands, Bouwinvest manages direct investments for five real estate sector Funds for bpfBOUW, three of which, the Residential Fund, the Retail Fund and the Office Fund, are open for like-minded institutional investors. At present, the Healthcare Fund and the Hotel Fund are managed exclusively for bpfBOUW. However, there is a possibility that other institutional investors may participate in these funds in the future.
Bouwinvest is recognised as one of the leading real estate investment managers in the Netherlands, due to its solid track record as a fund manager that outperforms sector benchmarks. Bouwinvest has built up in-depth knowledge of the Dutch real estate markets, supported by best-in-class valuation and risk management policies. Thanks to this experience and expertise in the Dutch market, and its outstanding in-house research team, Bouwinvest is able to select the best investments and investment managers for its International Investments portfolio. Bouwinvest forges true and lasting partnerships with its international investment managers, adding to our own expertise, with the aim of improving the services we provide our clients and adding to our knowledge of international real estate investment markets. We also believe that knowing our investors is the best way to meet their long-term investment needs.
Bouwinvest is also recognised as a leading real estate investor on the sustainability front. All three of our real estate sector funds in the Netherlands open to investors have been awarded the highest GRESB sustainability ratings, and an increasing number of our international investment managers now use GRESB to assess the sustainability of their portfolios.
