The most important long-term goal for Retail Estates nv is to assemble, manage and extend a portfolio of peripheral retail properties, which ensures steady, long-term growth, due to its location and the quality and diversification of its tenants. The predetermined growth results both from the value of the asset and the income generated from leasing.

In the short term, these goals are being pursued by continuously monitoring the occupancy level of the portfolio, the rental income, and the maintenance and management costs. The selective purchase and construction of shops at particular locations (so-called ‘retail clusters and retail parks’) are aimed at simplifying the management and boosting the value of the portfolio.
