Real estate investment funds are a modern way to own and manage properties. In a fund the use of equity is enhanced with gearing which also increases the diversity of the fund’s real estate portfolio. Indirect ownership also significantly reduces the administrative workload of the real estate owner. As the fund purchases more properties, the amount and value of the real estate of the fund owners is also increased.
Icecapital has a strong expertise in the real estate sector and a capability to analyze the real estate market especially from the investment and finance point of view.
