We have been managing the assets of the Swiss Life Group's insurance companies for over 160 years. This origin has shaped our investment philosophy to this day. The majority of our investments are in fixed-income and real estate.
With our subsidiary BEOS AG, we develop tailor-made solutions for the space requirements of companies and exploit the potential of this asset class for investors via special funds.
In addition to selected commercial projects throughout Germany, we realise around 200 residential units annually with a marketing volume of 250 million euros. The implementation is holistic - from project planning to construction and sale to private or institutional investors. Our range of services extends from condominiums for private buyers to entire construction phases for global investors to innovative office buildings and the development of hotel locations.
We develop and set up investment vehicles to meet the needs of domestic and foreign investors. Swiss Life Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH (Swiss Life KVG) assumes active and performance-oriented management in Germany and Luxembourg in accordance with investment objectives and in close cooperation with our clients. Swiss Life KVG is part of Swiss Life Asset Managers Germany and thus also belongs to the Swiss Life Group. Other areas of activity of Swiss Life KVG include the establishment of open-ended real estate funds for private and institutional investors.
On behalf of our clients, we take on asset management tasks throughout the entire life cycle of a property. From technical asset management and development to portfolio optimisation and letting, we ensure optimal management. We are equally at home in the office, retail, healthcare, logistics, light industrial and residential asset classes.
Pension liabilities can pose major accounting and administrative challenges for companies. We offer tailor-made products for the outsourcing of occupational pensions to experienced players.
Our thinking is shaped by our insurance background – securing our assets over the long term through sustainable value enhancement is in our DNA. With decades of experience in risk management, we offer our clients a comprehensive portfolio of solutions and products for stable and attractive returns. But it's not just about earnings: when making long-term investment decisions, issues such as environmental impacts, social consequences and corporate governance are now also taken into consideration. We incorporate these so-called ESG (environmental, social and governance) themes into all our investment recommendations. We have also signed the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) of the United Nations.
