About / Om Swiss Properties Invest

Swiss Properties Invest A/S has been established to give both private and professional investors the opportunity to invest in commercial properties in Switzerland based on the founders more than 15 years of experience with acquiring and operating commercial properties in Switzerland. Dating back from 2006 the team behind has completed more than 50 Swiss property investment projects; acquired more than 45 properties and reached CHF 310 million in total acquisition volume. The performance of the investments made over the last 15 years has been very good with the total return on the investment (defined as the accumulated profit paid-out plus the value appreciation of each individual property) and is so far c. 300 %. For our Danish investors having participated since the beginning, adding the currency gain, the total return would exceed c. 420 %.

On this background,  Swiss Properties Invest A/S has been established to take advantage of the many years of experience, resources, capabilities, and business network build up by the team.

The objective of Swiss Properties Invest A/S is to own, operate, optimise and develop a portfolio of attractive commercial properties for renting out commercial space in selected regions (cantons) in Switzerland with the aim of creating shareholder value to its investors through:

  • increasing the value of the existing properties over the long term by optimizing the operations aiming at lowering costs and developing the properties to increase rental income resulting in increased earnings
  • re-investing profit generated in more properties, increasing overall rental income
  • accumulating ever more value based on increasing profits and value appreciation

The primary market is Switzerland being one of the world’s strongest and most stable economies in the world.
