Dutch institutional investor APG announced on Thursday that it is introducing a cost effective ESG-focused Real Estate index strategy for pension funds.
In a statement, APG said that the index strategy is 'an innovative approach that enables APG’s clients to invest into listed Real Estate while at the same time accounting for various ESG-factors'.
The introduction of this Real Estate index product follows the introduction of RI index investment solutions for equities in 2021.
The iSTOXX APG Real Estate CRREM-aligned Responsible Investment Index has been developed to address a growing demand for cost-efficient and ESG-focused listed Real Estate strategies for our clients.
Rutger van der Lubbe, head of Global Real Estate Investment Strategy at APG: 'The launch of the APG Real Estate CRREM-aligned RI Index strategy is the next step in the evolution of the award-winning APG Listed Real Estate strategy, which has successfully been run for our clients for over 25 years, providing them with unique exposure to Global listed Real Estate whilst generating attractive returns in a risk-controlled manner. This product both leverages and complements our existing product range of actively managed investment solutions.'
