The CSR policy of a.s.r. reim and its funds takes account at all times of what constitutes responsible investment management. This is about the amount and stability of our financial return and the accompanying risk profile. We will assess our CSR choices in this light. Our CSR policy is based on four key pillars, the four Ps: Property, Partners, Planet and People.
A stable and attractive financial return in keeping with the risk profile is achieved in part by active asset management. Our efforts are directed on a daily basis at improving the portfolio in terms of both type of property and tenant and geographical location. We are interested in locations with perpetual value and do not allow ourselves to be deflected by hypes and fleeting investment opportunities. Our market and asset tools support the buying and selling process. Wherever possible, we also try to conclude long-term leases and tenancy agreements. This is not only required to achieve a stable return, but also – and above all – to provide security for our tenants and/or land users.
At the level of a.s.r. reim, we have defined a key strategic objective of a general nature for each pillar. Multiple policy measures are in force for each key objective. In practice, the objectives have been fleshed out differently for each individual fund and business line, or separately where relevant, due to the different characteristics of the portfolios (residential property, shops, offices and rural real estate) and the consequent wide variety of actions and measures. a.s.r. reim wishes to achieve the objectives set out regarding Property, Partners, Planet and People (see https://asrreim.com/about-us/csr-policy - pag 6) by 2020 at the latest, but in many cases much earlier. Moreover, most of the strategic objectives are of a structural nature.
