Vanguard Invest S.A.

Real Estate Investment Strategy


Developments are turning visions into reality. The Vanguard Invest development team is highly qualified and holds a wealth of experience in interdisciplinary project work.

Its broad spectrum of expertise ranges from development of new high quality city centers office buildings and special types of real estate tailored to the requirements of individual tenants to the revitalization and/or conversion of former industrial zones and help creating pulsating new districts with a long-term vision.

Vanguard Invest attaches great attention to the research process, which allows us to identify future market trends and lead the way following property and market data strategic analysis in order to perfectly adapt to the current and future demand.

In each individual project, we focus on how to transform theoretical potential and ROI expectations into tangible added value. In doing so, we are always guided by our commitment to the sustainability principle. We identify opportunities, evaluate feasibility, and locate new tenants. Our creative ideas give a new and attractive lease of life to core asset properties, real estate with promising potential and industrial zones – one which fulfils the needs of tenants while also keeping a steady eye on costs.

We dedicate great importance to architecture, sustainability as well as the esthetical revalorization of urban environment in order to meet or even exceed the expectations of our clients and partners.


Alongside the developments, we invest in income generating real estate objects. Vanguard Invest primarily focuses on city offices, retail, residential and leisure properties.

We highly value location, tenant structure and solvency, residual value as well as opportunities with regards to future market trends.

Our highly skilled investment team shows a proven track record of sourcing and executing complex real estate transactions, often involving property development or redevelopment. The team's investment approach utilizes development initiatives as well as value-added marketing and leasing schemes to unlock attractive returns.

Vanguard Invest identifies undervalued opportunities by systematically filtering investment markets. We acquire all our properties through appropriate corporate ownership structures and incorporate tailor-made debt and capital market instruments. Each investment is structured in order to maximize our investors' net returns and to minimize risks.

This basic investment approach applies to all our investment activities, including direct investments, co-investments or fund structures.

Vanguard Invest believes that prudent management co-investment and complete transparency in reporting and overall investor communication are crucial components of our fiduciary responsibility. These principles provide us with important building blocks in our corporate governance model which is built on a true alignment of interests.
