Rijksvastgoedbedrijf (Central Government Real Estate Agency)

The Central Government Real Estate Agency uses property to help achieve the aims of the Dutch government. We manage a well-balanced property portfolio that satisfies the requirements of today’s users and accommodates the varied constituents of the central government. The composition of the portfolio ensures that we can always meet central government’s constantly changing property requirements. We do this by acquiring new properties, by selling superfluous properties and by maintaining the properties under our management. Our approach is efficient, effective and cost-aware.

For sale: 1.000 projects

Properties that are no longer fit for purpose in the State Portfolio Strategy are being sold. Our sales portfolio contains nearly 1.000 diverse projects, including both office locations, former military sites and pieces of land. 

Whenever possible we try to generate suitable revenues by selling our properties for competitive prices, but the interests of society are also an important factor. The Central Government Real Estate Agency wishes to contribute to a sustainable society.

Amvest was created in 1997 from the merger of the Dutch real estate divisions of the pension fund PGGM  and AEGON, the insurer. Amvest is a leading fund manager and developer of homes and residential areas in The Netherlands and is active throughout the whole value chain of the Dutch housing market.

Investment Management

Amvest manages four funds: the Amvest Residential Core Fund (ARC Fund), the Amvest Residential Dynamic Fund, the AEGON portfolios and the Amvest Living & Care Fund. Amvest is also fund manager for a number of separate accounts. At half year-end 2015, the funds had under management 19,000 homes with a market value of EUR 2.9 billion. From 1997 to 2014 the Amvest Residential Core Fund, Amvest Residential Dynamic Fund and its predecessors outperformed the IPD property index.


Amvest is engaged in the development of residential properties and residential areas in strong economic areas in The Netherlands. These areas show the strongest economic growth, highest quality of life, and greatest population density in the country, which together produce a solid housing market.

Amvest Residential Core Fund open to new investors

The ARC Fund is Amvest’s flagship fund. The fund has a high-quality core portfolio with a solid track record. As per half year-end 2015, the ARC Fund portfolio encompasses 6,000 homes, representing a value of approximately EUR 1.2 billion. The portfolio consists predominantly of relatively new homes in the highly sought-after mid-priced rental sector located in the Randstad region (Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague and Rotterdam). Research shows that these markets offer the best opportunities, both now and in the future. The relatively new homes imply low operating costs. Our policy is to rejuvenate the portfolio constantly. To ensure this renewal, the ARC Fund has a right of first refusal on all rental properties developed by Amvest. Amvest’s extensive network also gives us access to third-party developments. New investments will result in growth of the ARC Fund.
