At Arab Bank (Switzerland) Ltd., “ABS”, we are able to secure, share and structure as Club Deals, exclusive investments in commercial real estate with like-minded investors wishing to diversify their exposure in large, single assets across continental Europe. The ABS Real Estate team is highly specialized in the portfolio management of investments in logistic and office assets, and is able to structure investments for specific opportunities across sectors. The team benefits from access to off-market deals in Continental Europe.
A Club Deal brings together a limited number of private investors who will collectively invest into one or more properties while benefiting from ABS know-how and extensive track record of successful transaction execution. We combine experience with strong knowledge to ensure our investors receive an accurate, knowledgeable and dedicated service throughout the life cycle of their investment. Investors will also benefit from ABS long term partnerships with key selected and well renowned EU service providers specialised in legal practice, fiscal advice, property management, technical & environmental due diligence, audit, accounting and financing.
The selected Club Deal offering is efficiently structured as a Luxembourg securitization platform issuing profit participating notes which optimally collect interests from the cash flows generated by each investment. The minimum deal size starts at €40 million and the investment is directly managed by the dedicated Real Estate team at ABS (as portfolio manager).
ABS is considered by most MENA investors to be their preferred gateway for providing exclusive access to commercial real estate opportunities in continental Europe; as ABS leverages a strong track record in Real Estate transactions since 2013, which is further proven through the stellar performance of its flagship Luxembourg commercial real estate fund, namely the AB European Real Estate Fund, since 2016.
Our specific investment approach entails a continual market screening discipline, enabling us to identify long term structural trends and their impact on asset value and rental growth potential.
Upon your request, our team would be pleased to make its specialized offering available to you.
