By closing the funds for subscriptions we ensure that the money invested in these funds can be invested reliably and profitably. All redemptions, and all subscriptions made at the latest on 30 September, will be executed normally. The closing means that the corresponding investment baskets we offer under saving through insurance, OP-Life Forest Owner and OP-Life Public Services Real Estate, will also be closed for subscriptions until 31 December 2020.
With these measures, we will be maintaining the funds’ market exposures and securing current unitholders’ returns. We are seeking high-quality investments to the funds, focusing on profitability and return target. The funds’ investment operations continue normally and we will implement all planned projects.
On 1 January 2021, subscribing for units in the OP-Forest Owner and OP-Public Services Real Estate special common funds will be possible again. The next subscriptions will be confirmed on 31 May 2021.
Growing interest in real estate funds
Real estate funds have become more and more popular in recent years. Investing in real estate and forests have emerged as good alternatives to the investor, in addition to the traditional stock and fixed-income markets. Our real estate and forest funds have steadily increased their capital and we have been able to build excellent portfolios.
If you are interested in real estate investing, the OP-Rental Yield special common fund is open for subscriptions normally. We also have a new special common fund, OP-Alternative Portfolio, through which you can invest in other alternative investments.
