Diversified portfolio

When we are optimizing our portfolio, we take into account the following diversification categories:

  • Type of housing

  • The indexation policy

  • The rental segment

  • Year of construction

  • Regional spread with a focus on economically strong regions

Core region policy

To identify the most attractive municipalities for residential investments, the Fund considers the following indicators:

  • Population growth

  • Employment opportunities

  • Development in stock

  • Vacancy rates

  • Volatility of value development

The target is for at least 80.0% of the total portfolio value to be in investment properties in the Fund's core regions. This currently stands at 92.1%.

Major segments

To meet its own diversification guidelines, the Fund strives for a healthy balance of family homes and apartments. Because we focus on inner-city areas, the proportion of apartments will continue to grow in the near future.

Focus on liberalised rental sector

With an average monthly rent of € 1,001, the focus of the Fund continues to be on the mid-rental segment. The liberalised sector (rents of € 711 and above) is particularly interesting for the Fund because demand is growing and supply is lagging, especially in the Netherlands’ largest and most popular cities. In addition, the liberalised rental market has in recent years become more competitive vis-a-vis the owner-occupier market. This is widely recognised as the best residential segment in which to invest.
