Bouwinvest’s Retail Fund targets popular shopping streets in the biggest Dutch cities (Experience) and smaller and local convenience stores (Convenience). This acquisition is an excellent fit with the fund’s Experience strategy, which is focussed on the top 15 biggest cities and most popular high streets in the country. At the end of 2018, the invested capital totalled €1bn while the total return came to 7%. The vehicle is one of the most sustainable Dutch retail funds, with a GRESB rating of 4 stars.
