Can't Sell A House? What Happend When You Can't Sell A Fund?

Recommended Posts

It takes time to sell a property in todays market, but not to be able to sell a property fund. :ph34r:

From FT page 18 on 14.12.05

Deutsche Bank has taken the unprecedented step of closing its doors to hundreds of thousands of its German property fund investors in a move that analysts said could trigger a crisis across the open-ended property funds sector.

DB Real Estate said last night that in consultation with BaFin, Germany's chief financial watchdog, it has frozen its 6.1bn euros Grundbesitz-Invest fund to prevent a run on withdrawals from the fund caused by the threat of asset write-downs in it's underlying property holdings.


Brokers said the outflows in the past two days has been very high, following news of the pending asset revaluation.

Good find. I thought the German property market had not suffered the price inflation that elsewhere has. Does this fund hold lots of foreign property?

I guess this is one of the problems with open-ended funds. It would have been, theoretically at least, been easier to sell in an investment trust form, of course the price would have been annihilated with a run on it.
