Zurich, July 29, 2022 – Helvetica Swiss Commercial Fund increases occupancy rate to 93.4%.
The fund management company looks back on a successful first semester of the Helvetica Swiss Commercial Fund. The market value increased slightly by around 0.4% to CHF 753 million compared to the end of the previous year. Rental income increased by 2.6% compared to the previous period. Active asset management increased the occupancy rate from 93.1% to 93.6%. For the second half of the year, the focus will be on exploiting the potential of the free-standing rental space. It is expected that the occupancy quote will increase further.
As of June 30, 2022, the fund comprises 35 properties with a total area of around 308,000 m2. Further information on the Helvetica Swiss Commercial Fund can be found in the current Fact sheet.
Current market developments are being closely monitored by the fund management company, with the SNB expected to raise interest rates again in fall. Further interest rate steps cannot be ruled out. The fund manager is already taking these developments into account in its current business activities. Due to robust Swiss economic data, continued high migration, declining construction activity, and sustained high inflation, the fund management expects a stable performance of the portfolio. An attractive distribution of profits is also expected for fiscal year 2022.
The semi-annual report will be published on August 24.
