Strategy and Business Model
The integrated business model covers the value chain over the entire lifecycle of a property. Its core features comprise site and project development from interim use to completion, portfolio/asset management, managed primarily in-house, and transaction management for continuous optimisation of the real estate portfolio as part of HIAG’s capital recycling strategy.
The investment strategy focuses on former industrial sites, commercial, office and logistics real estate and selected residential properties in economic core regions and future-oriented growth regions in German and French-speaking Switzerland – although HIAG’s market area covers the whole of Switzerland.
The implementation of the project pipeline over generations enables sustainable increases in value. The strong market position is used to consistently increase the quality of the real estate portfolio through acquisitions and sales. Value-enhancing investments are made with profits from the divestment of properties where for HIAG the value-increasing potential has been exhausted, and from the sale of development projects.
HIAG has long-term anchor shareholders and, as a listed company with access to the capital market, economic clout. Market developments are used proactively thanks to the entrepreneurial corporate
culture, short decision-making processes and innovative team of experienced professionals.
As a conscientious company, HIAG creates environmental, economic and social added value and pursues an investor-friendly dividend policy.
HIAG’s business model is based on designing destinations that offer people living space and companies room to flourish in the long term. Our extensive real estate portfolio with several generations’ worth of development potential, our active portfolio management and the management, administration and rental of real estate are at the heart of HIAG’s business model. The real estate portfolio is continuously optimised with a focus on generating value over several generations through acquisitions and sales within the value chain.
