Meridia II

Investment Strategy

Meridia II seeks to reduce risk by diversifying the portfolio among several segments of the real estate market.

The Fund invests in Spain only. The primary focus is on Madrid and Barcelona as the two most liquid markets, although not exclusively.

Focus on value-added projects

Specifically, our investment strategy focuses on the following:

  • The acquisition, refurbishment and/or reconversion of all types of real estate assets including greenfield developments (limited to 20% of the Fund) with a view to then selling and/or leasing the final units or resulting groups/portfolios to third parties.
  • Financing of any type of real estate projects.
  • Acquisition, sale and/or commercialisation of any type of portfolio of residential, logistic, retail, hotel, commercial and any other type of REO assets from any type of third party.
  • Acquisition of any type of loan/credit/debt with underlying real estate assets, Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) and alike in-rem securities.
