The Group's teams are committed to creating value for you. Their focus and skills enable the Group to deliver superior growth in all of its activities and to optimise the value of the prime commercial assets and development projects in its portfolio. The size, location and reputation of these assets provide the Group with an inherent competitive advantage. The Group's active management approach attracts the best retailers to its shopping centres, which in turn drives footfall and boosts tenants' sales. All of this creates growth that benefits its assets and, ultimately, its shareholders.
Unibail-Rodamco has a strong capital recycling policy. Once its assets are mature and generating stable rents, it sells them in order to reinvest in projects with the potential to generate superior growth or it returns cash to shareholders. Investing in Unibail-Rodamco shares is like investing in a proxy for real estate: they combine the solidity offered by prime real estate and the liquidity offered by the stock market, all with a regular dividend thanks to the Group's REIT status. This clear vision and strategy has enabled Unibail-Rodamco to deliver the best performance in the industry - outperforming both European peers and the CAC40 - and allows the Group to look to the future with confidence.
Thank you for your trust,
Chief Financial Officer
