The ING Real Estate French Residential Fund has taken delivery of five select residential properties in prime locations across France. The newly built rental properties offer investors attractive opportunities for long-term investment returns through active management in the second-largest residential market in Continental Europe. The Fund forward purchased the properties from the developers for a total of EUR 32.7 million.

The properties are as follows:

* Edouard Nieuport, Suresnes, Île de France, near La Défense, Paris
24 residential units covering 1,506m² and 27 parking units
* Le Jardin des Asturies, Marseille, Provence

ING Real Estate’s unlisted, semi-open end French Residential Fund invests in core and value-added residential properties in prime locations across France, mainly cities in the Île de France (Paris area - city centre, Boulogne-Billancourt, Île Seguin and Suresnes districts) and Rhône-Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur regions, which feature stable economic growth and favourable demographics. The residential sector in France is a mature property class with a solid and low investment risk profile, providing relatively stable income returns combined with the opportunity for long-term capital growth. Rental contracts also provide a hedge against inflation. The fund has a targeted internal rate of return of 8% and a total target investment volume of EUR 500 million.

“Given the limited availability of select residential space in France, we are delighted with the delivery of these select prime properties, which are in demand in the rental property sector. These assets have contributed to diversifying the fund’s portfolio”, said Wim Wensing, Fund Manager.

The residential portfolio is managed by the ING Real Estate French Residential Fund team in Paris, which has a strong track record and solid expertise in investing in prime properties across the country.
