About the fund
The Czech Real Estate Investment Fund, established in 2016, focuses on investments in existing commercial real estate in the Czech Republic, mainly in the retail, warehousing and light manufacturing sectors. Its strategy is aimed at conservative investors who prefer long-term stable appreciation with lower risk, benefiting from a high-quality rental real estate portfolio.
The fund maintains a high diversification of tenants, rental yields and locations across the Czech Republic. Four hundred tenants, primarily in regional shopping parks, ensure returns stability.
The fund strategy is based on the acquisition of commercial real estate with a suitable structure of lessees and a permanent stable return that can be predicted based on concluded long-term lease agreements. The planned return on share certificates for investors is +6%. The fund primarily focuses on regional retail parks with a dominant weight of sellers of foodstuffs and essential needs (groceries, pharmacies, drug stores, etc.), and on logistics buildings and light manufacturing premises. The selected strategy has shown to be correct and resilient to unexpected crises in the past years.
Portfolio segment and regional diversification
We invest in various segments of commercial real estate in the entire Czech Republic and Poland. Lots of buildings, hundreds of creditworthy lessees and orientation on regions ensure the stability of the portfolio and its returns thanks to their diversification.
Creditworthy lessees with long-term contracts
Correct mix of lessees and long-term lease agreements are a key for stable income of the funds. The lessees are mainly large and financially strong multinational chains. The portfolio is characterised by its high and growing length of lease agreements.
Quality facility and property management
The care of the physical condition of buildings and quality of lease relationships has a significant impact on increasing the market value of properties and appreciation of invested funds. We look after more than 300 lessees in tens of properties in the Czech Republic and Poland.
Graph of the fund rate of return since establishment

The Fund is included in the list of foreign investment funds kept by the Czech National Bank according to Section 597 (e) of the Act, and thus investments in the Fund may be publicly offered in the Czech Republic.

We recommend that investors thoroughly review the publicly available information on the relevant product, such as the fund’s Statute and the Key Investor Information Document, before making any investment decision. The value of a unit in the Fund may ﬂuctuate. Past performance of the Fund does not guarantee similar returns in the future. Investing in investment instruments generally involves certain risks which arise mainly from the nature of each particular investment instrument, as well as from the statutory provisions and from the customs prevailing in the relevant ﬁnancial markets or countries. Investors fully assume the risk of their investments, including the risk of potential loss. Investment instruments involve, for example, the issuer’s credit risk and the risk of ﬂuctuation in the value of securities. Even conservative investments are not completely free of risks. However, it is possible to reduce risks especially through diversiﬁcation, i.e. by distributing the portfolio assets and by regularly and actively monitoring the investment.

How long do I need to leave my investment in the fund, and how long does it take to withdraw it?
The minimum investment period is not set. Investing, however, needs to be understood as a long-term process, and your personal investment horizon should ideally be no shorter than 3 years, also because of the “tax test”, where, after expiry of this period, the income from the sale of a share certificate is not subject to tax.
