    We select the best partners for institutional investments from our international private real estate network.

    YOUR CO-INVESTMENT

    our investment

    After positive due diligence, we invest our own capital in the appropriate funds and continue to remain invested over the entire term.

    REPAYMENT

    Once the underlying fund starts selling assets, the capital is paid out by LINUS to all investors in multiple payments over a period of several years.
