Baker McKenzie advises Swisscanto on its acquisition of real estate portfolio

Baker McKenzie has advised Swisscanto Anlagestiftung on its acquisition of a real estate portfolio consisting of nine properties located in the cantons of Bern, Zurich, St. Gallen and Aargau.

The acquisition was conducted as a contribution in kind from another investment foundation (Anlagestiftung) to the investment group Swisscanto AST Immobilien Responsible Schweiz under the regime of an asset transfer under the Swiss Merger Act (Vermögensübertragung). This was one of the first assets transfers (Sacheinlage) of a real estate portfolio conducted from one investment foundation to another.
