Who we are

B&I Capital is headquartered in Zurich and is a fully regulated Asset Manager under the Swiss FINMA. We also hold a CMS license for accredited investors under the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Our focus is on institutional clients and our services and products are built around the following principles:

  • Investing in listed real estate with focus on commercial
  • Focusing on long-term and risk-controlled investment strategies
  • Providing superb client service
  • Investing personally on the same terms as our clients

Our History

B&I Capital was founded in Zurich in 2007 by its two managing partners and owners, Charles Isaac and Christian Bernasconi. AUM at launch was USD 30m, this has grown by a CAGR in excess of 30% pa.

After successfully managing through the financial crisis, B&I Capital opened an office in Singapore in 2010, enabling better access to companies and further improving research.

In 2013, the Singapore office received a CMS license for accredited investors from Monetary Authority of Singapore. Then in 2014, we became a fully regulated Asset Manager under the Swiss FINMA.

To further expand our REIT offering, in 2015 we launched a global REIT fund and, in 2020, a US-dedicated REIT mandate for an institutional client. We have continued to strengthened our global research capability with additional highly experienced colleagues.

We currently manage four separate funds, with hedged currency share classes where required, and four mandates for institutional clients. All products focus on listed equity REITs but with different characteristics depending on clients’ needs.
