Salus Alpha Real Estate rose 9.13 per cent in March with a year-to-date performance of 7.08 per cent.
This is the best month since the inception of the Ucits III compliant fund.
Salus Alpha Real Estate is among the top three funds of its peer group on all prominent databases.
The fund does not follow any benchmark, however it outperformed the Epra/Nareit Real Estate Index in March 2010 by 2.92 per cent.
Salus Alpha Capital says real estate is an asset of interest to retail as well as institutional investors. It believes that with the sign of economic recovery, this asset class will resurface and shine as an investment target.
The fund selects real estate investments based on a quantitative model. It invests systematically (model based) in a portfolio of real estate stocks. The fund can take short as well as 100 per cent cash positions.
“We expect all our funds to be up double digits this year as we already see all our funds having positive performance so far,” says Oliver Prock, chief executive of Salus Alpha Capital.
