OP-Rental Yield

A fund that enables you to easily become a residential property investor
1

Easy residential property investment

Through the residential property fund, you can be a residential property investor without the trouble and large amount of initial capital that an owner-occupied apartment involves.

2

Steady return from a residential property fund

Rental apartments offer steady return based on rental income and are therefore less vulnerable to market movements.

3

Higher return potential and diversification benefits

Renting and construction contracting of apartments and office premises offer higher return potential than what a mere residential property investment offers.

A residential property fund enables you to invest in housing units and real property

OP-Rental Yield is a non-UCITS fund that enables you to diversify your investments in housing units, real property and their construction. The fund's investments focus on growth centres and attractive areas.

By investing in OP-Rental Yield, you will enjoy the benefits of residential property investment without the trouble caused by managing the property or tenancy.

The fund seeks stable and steady return. OP-Rental Yield primarily aims to earn a rental yield on apartments it owns. In addition, the fund may acquire business premises and earn additional income by leasing them.

Why it pays to invest in OP-Rental Yield?

  • No previous experience in residential property investment is required.
  • Enables a steady return that is not dependent on stock markets.
  • Through the residential property fund, your investment is immediately diversified in hundreds of housing units and real property. 
  • An effortless and easy way to invest in residential property.

OP-Rental Yield is a fund for investors with a long-term approach

OP-Rental Yield suits investors with a long-term approach, who seeks a stable and steady return on their investments. The fund focuses its investments on residential property and real property markets. For this reason, the general value performance in property markets and the performance of rental income have a significant effect on seeking returns and the value of the returns.

The fund annually pays unitholders a dividend that equals 75% of the realised net profit. Annual dividend has been paid as follows: €1.23 (2014), €1.22 (2015), €1.53 (2016), €2.09 (2017), €2.56 (2018), €3.50 (2019), €3.03 (2020) €2.47 (2021), €3.89 (2022), €1,53 (2023).

Considering that investing in residential property is a long-term investment, it therefore pays to engage oneself in the residential property fund for a longer time. OP-Rental Yield suits investors who intend to redeem their units after four years at the earliest. The fund is a splendid choice for those dreaming of residential property investment but not ready to spend a large amount of initial capital on purchasing a buy-to-let home. Now you can become a residential property investor even with a small amount – OP-Rental Yield Fund has no minimum subscription.

Fund’s available apartments

OP-Rental Yield fund’s portfolio is managed by OP Property Management. The fund’s available apartments are shown on the Kodisto page. For the properties shown, real estate funds managed by OP Property Management or OP's insurance and pension institutions act as lessors.

OP-Rental Yield fund mainly invests its assets in apartments, commercial premises and residential construction contracting. The fund is a AIF fund based on the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive.

The fund’s investments are mainly made in rental apartments which account for some half of the fund’s portfolio. In addition, the fund invests a maximum of a fifth of its gross assets in residential construction contracting. These investments are made either directly to OP-Rental Yield’s own construction contracting or indirectly in shares in limited partnerships engaged in building and renting homes. The fund also invests in commercial premises, such as business and office premises.

Developments in prices and rental income in the Finnish property market contribute considerably to the fund’s return and value. Fund investments typically focus on real property in growth poles and other regions considered the most attractive by the portfolio management.

The fund management company may, for the account of the fund and for the purpose of the fund’s investment operations and asset management, borrow an amount that accounts for a maximum of half (½) of the fund’s total assets. For a special
reason, the fund management company may borrow an amount accounting for a maximum of one-third (⅓) of the fund’s net assets for a temporary purpose. The fund may pledge its assets in security for its loans.

OP-Rental Yield is a non-UCITS fund which mainly invests its assets in homes, commercial premises and residential construction contracting in Finland. The Fund promotes environmental and social characteristics and, to ensure it, uses environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis and excludes certain investments. The Fund’s investments are mainly made directly in rental apartments which account for at least half of the Fund’s portfolio. In addition, the Fund invests a maximum of a fifth of its gross assets in residential construction contracting.

The Fund promotes environmental and social characteristics by supporting sustainable urbanisation in the form of infill development and by favouring energy efficient solutions. In selecting investments, we place emphasis on locations that enable access to services on foot or by bicycle or public transport. The Fund enables the construction of new, healthy homes and a high-quality alternative to home ownership.

This financial product promotes environmental or social characteristics, but sustainable investment is not its objective. To the extent that the Fund makes sustainable investments, those investments aligned with the EU Taxonomy which have set climate change mitigation as their environmental goals are considered sustainable investments. Climate change mitigation is promoted by investing in the options that meet the requirements of the EU Taxonomy. Insofar as the Fund makes sustainable investments with climate change mitigation as the environmental goal, it is assessed in line with the EU Taxonomy that the investment does not cause significant harm to other goals following the EU Taxonomy.

The sustainability indicators monitored include the average energy class of properties, the production of renewable energy in properties, the number of homes built and the number of certified properties.
