The value-add in Swiss
Real Estate

About Us

Stone Estate is a private commercial real estate company focused on value-add and opportunistic investments in Switzerland. We were founded in 2017, and our management arm is headquartered in Zurich.

We believe value-add investment is under-served in Swiss real estate, in the potential for growth, and in the benefit of building the right networks to realise this value.

Our approach combines long-standing, local market knowledge with real estate private equity experience and a team with understanding of international capital markets.

Stone Estate is part of Reech Corporations Group – an investment group operating at the intersection of real estate, technology and finance. 

Investment Philosophy

Stone Estate specializes in all types of value-add real estate investments:

• “Buy & fix” asset-level value creation (e.g. capital spending, repositioning & lease-up)

• “Buy & build” investing through specialized partners (e.g. local developers, niche operators, asset managers)

• “Buy & manage” structured (financial) investments with property collateral (e.g. leasing receivables)

We focus on short- to mid-term value creation not based on market movement but through pro-active management and additional capital.

We analyze the potential for mid- to long-term growth of rental income (overall and per square meter) as well as capital values (through income growth and yield compression based on the underlying improvements).

We are a team of entrepreneurs with discipline and ownership at the heart of what we do.
