SEB Asset Management launches Asian real estate fund duo (DE)
Thursday 26 January 2012
SEB Asset Management has expanded its offering for institutional investors and high net worth individuals with two new Asian real estate funds. SEB Asian Property II and SEB Asia REI give investors the opportunity to invest in pan-Asian real estate portfolios, while benefiting from the expertise and experience of an established asset manager in the region.
SEB Asset Management has an eight-strong team in Singapore and has already successfully established a special fund under Luxembourg law focusing on Asian real estate, SEB Asian Property Fund. The transaction volume generated by Asian real estate since 2006 amounts to the equivalent of more than €2.2 billion.
SEB Asset Management is building on this strong foundation and taking account of investors’ differing requirements with two new real estate funds. Investors have shown great interest in the two vehicles, with €100 million in funds already firmly committed. The total investment volume for each fund is up to €1.2 billion, with a debt ratio of 50 percent in each case.
