Thomas Schneider, Chief Investment Officer at BrickVest, commented: “The strength of the returns speak to the quality of the investments BrickVest selects for its platform. We focus exclusively on institutional grade investments investing alongside leading real estate investment managers. For the first time ever private investors can access the same investment opportunities as large institutional investors such as pension funds and insurance companies.”

Remi Antonini, Head of Ratings at BrickVest, commented: “Following the successful exit, investors using the BrickVest platform have achieved a superior return from an institutional-quality fund led by a strong real estate investment manager. This attractive absolute return was realised in the context of a controlled risk profile as the fund invested in a diversified and income-producing German retail portfolio with a cautious gearing level.”
