With real estate assets totalling around CHF 8 billion, Baloise is one of the largest institutional real estate owners in Switzerland. Because we manage the direct Swiss real estate investments of the group companies of the Baloise Group as well as the pension foundation of Baloise Insurance Ltd, we have many years of comprehensive real estate expertise in the regulated institutional environment.

Our broad expertise is particularly evident in the current project development of Baloise Park. Until 2020, Baloise is building Baloise Park on the site between Aeschengraben, Parkweg and Nauenstrasse in Basel. The new Baloise Park will shape the cityscape and reflect Baloise’s commitment to the city on the Rhine. All information and articles relating to the Baloise Park construction project can be found at www.baloisepark.ch.
Baloise is one of the largest property owners in Switzerland. For us as a responsible investor, sustainable real estate investments and long-term returns are closely linked. For the benefit of our policyholders and investors, we use responsible property management to secure our earning power on a sustainable basis and improve the value of our properties.
In order to optimize the energy efficiency of our building stock, we strive to reduce energy consumption primarily through the renovation of older buildings and replacement buildings, in addition to the acquisition of properties, portfolios and new construction projects. Our tenants benefit from lower operating costs. This can help to retain existing tenants and, on the other hand, to attract new tenants.
Our investment decisions combine financial goals, ecology and social challenges. In the case of new construction projects, we strive for certification - in the case of renovations, this is checked on a situational basis. For this purpose, the consumption figures (energy and water consumption) of the properties are systematically recorded and evaluated. With the help of the cantonal building energy certificate (GEAK), the energy efficiency of each property is determined and concrete measures for improvement are derived.
