CAERUS Debt Investments AG is an investment consultancy company specialising in real estate debt. CAERUS advises a Luxembourg-domiciled Real Estate Debt Fund on investment strategy and on its investments in loans secured on real estate. It also manages Real Estate Debt Investments on behalf of individual clients.
By international comparison, the German-speaking world still has some catching-up to do in the field of Real Estate Debt Investments. One of the effects of Basel III is to reduce the provision of borrowed capital by the banks – particularly above the amount secured by covered bonds, while Solvency II has made equity capital investments more expensive for insurance companies. Innovative investors are therefore considering real estate debt as an attractive alternative investment.
