Core region policy
To identify the most attractive municipalities for residential investments, the Fund takes into account the following indicators:
The Fund’s plan is for at least 80% of the total portfolio value to be in investment properties in the Fund's core regions. This currently stands at close to 99.2%. As the entire investment pipeline is located in the Fund’s core regions, this percentage will increase slightly in the near future. Furthermore, the Fund has a guideline that a maximum of 90% can be invested in the Randstad conurbation. This now stands at 85.8%.
The Residential Fund’s core regions based on market value, excluding property under construction
To meet its own diversification guidelines, the Fund strives for a healthy balance of family homes and apartments. Due to our focus on urban areas, the proportion of apartments will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.
Portfolio composition by type of property based on market value
In our drive to optimise our portfolio, we take into account the following diversification categories:
Focus on liberalised rental sector
The Fund sees the liberalised sector (rents of € 720 and above (as per January 2020, rents of € 737 and above) as particularly interesting, as demand is set to increase, while supply is lagging, especially in the Netherlands’ largest and most popular cities. With more than 90% of its properties in the liberalised segment, the Fund’s focus continues to be on this segment.
In the graph below, we have added the mid-rental segment for liberalised properties with special agreements related to the likes of the rental level and rent increases.
