The value-add in Swiss
The value-add in Swiss
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.
Stone Estate specialises in all types of value-add real estate investments:
• “Buy and fix” asset-level value creation (e.g. capital spending, repositioning and lease-up)
• “Buy and build” investing through specialised partners (e.g. local developers, niche operators, asset managers)
• “Buy and 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 analyse 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.
Stone Estate owns a portfolio of commercial assets located primarily in Western Switzerland, at present representing the asset classes office, logistics and land. We are actively sourcing new investment opportunities. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
Stone Estate’s management team, as shown below, consists of highly experienced professionals, contributing a diverse set of experiences, skills and networks across real estate, principal investing, capital markets, business development, finance and law. Stone Estate also benefits from an equally experienced Board of Directors.
